About this course

In this course, Mindset and Performance Coach Jon Unal (Conscious Beginnings), explains how our complex modern world drowns people in information overload. The antidote to this stress is the practice of mindfulness, which has been demonstrated empirically to change brain structure, increasing neuroplasticity and helping people to stay happy in the present moment. Research on the neuroscience of mindfulness is examined in the context of habits which increase grey matter density in areas of the brain associated with self-awareness, self-regulation, and compassion, which correlate well with happiness. Unal outlines his three-step procedure for resilience, beginning with attaining inner calm and ultimately yielding cognitive resilience: a state described well by Martin Seligman’s three aspects of personalisation, permanence, and pervasiveness (experienced differently by optimists than by pessimists). Unal lists numerous initiatives that build resilience and finishes with an invitation to viewers to create an action plan for enhancing resilience with their own mindfulness practice.
