Coping with the COVID-19 Pandemic using Mindfulness | Research Spotlight

In this online talk, Dr Elena Antonova will share insights from theory and research on how the practice of mindfulness could help us to protect our mental health in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

She will outline mindfulness skills that might be particularly relevant in the context of the ongoing pandemic, share some preliminary results from the Protect Mental Health COVID-19 Study, and give some practical tips on how to get started on a mindfulness practice.

Although the Protect Mental Health COVID-19 study focused on the effects of COVID-19, its findings could extend our understanding of how to better support mental health and well-being in other circumstances characterised by a threat to life and livelihood, social isolation, rapid change, and uncertainty.

This will inform public health policy on the prevention of mental illness and promotion of mental health and well-being at critical times, particularly in the context of strict social distancing or isolation.
