If you're living with a condition and being supported by one of the charities listed below, whether you have it yourself or you're supporting a close family member, you will likely be dealing with a lot of stress and uncertainty. Brought to you as part of the Better Together Alliance Project, this webinar is designed to help you to deal with the emotional burden of living with these conditions. 

We can’t always choose what happens to us in life, but we can pause to choose how we wish to respond.

Psychologist Lesley Howells delivered this webinar to bring us everyday mindfulness strategies designed to quieten the busyness of our minds and help us live a more meaningful life despite the challenges we face. 

This webinar is also a taster for the eight week Mindfulness Courses that Better Together run for our communities.
