Expert Interview with James Scholfield: Mindfulness for chronic pain

We are all guilty of letting our minds wander now and then. More often than not this causes anxiety and stress-inducing thoughts to surface. These can be detrimental to our productivity, stress levels and long-term health. 

One thing that we can all do to prevent our thoughts from taking flight is to practice mindfulness. By accessing this mental state, all humans can become fully present and aware of their experiences. This allows people to live a more fulfilling, healthy and happy life. 

But if everyone can become mindful, how do we do it?

James Scholfield, mindfulness practitioner and founder of A Mindful Earth, is here to crack the mindfulness codes. In this webinar he uncovers the power of the practice, methods for better mindfulness and how becoming more mindful can aid chronic pain. 

As mindfulness gains more popularity, an increasing number of medical studies have been carried to find out more about the link between chronic pain and mindfulness. Although the results are currently very varied, there is increasing evidence that mindfulness allows people with chronic conditions to engage with their pain more positively and live fully despite their symptoms. 

This webinar will:

  • Introduce you to mindfulness 
  • Explore how mindfulness can help to relieve chronic pain 
  • Highlight exercises that increase mindfulness 
  • Lead you through a mindful body scan and movement exercises
