Learn more about your study group task for Week 2.
This week is all about using mindfulness to recognise and reduce stress, rediscovering how curiosity is a central part of being mindful, and learning how cultivating gentleness improves focus and wellbeing. In your study group this week, you’re going to:
  • share your experiences with bringing mindfulness to everyday activities throughout the week
  • create a list showcasing your top tips on stress reduction that can be shared with the other learners.

What you need to do

  1. As a group, decide who will be your reporter for this week’s task. Their job is to share with other learners the work you’ve produced as a group. Consider having more than one reporter in your study group. This helps to share the workload if it gets busy later in the week (If you were the reporter for a previous week, think about sharing the role with another group member).
  2. By yourself, work through the week. Engage with the content and other learners, learning more as you go. Take time to do the meditations and work through the exercises.
  3. From Wednesday 15 February, discuss as a group the types of everyday activities that you used to cultivate mindfulness.
  4. As a group, create a list of the 10 most popular activities from your group, describing when, where and how you completed them.
  5. If you’re the reporter, share the list with other learners in the Comments of the Feedback from Craig and Richard for Week 2 step by Sunday 19 February.

We’d love for the work you produce as a study group to meet the 1200 character limit of the comments, but if you find that you’re working on a longer piece of writing with your study group or just need a place to workshop your ideas, consider using temporary text hosting tools like Pastie or NoteHub. Find out more about using Temporary text hosting.
At the end of this week, learners who have joined a study group will share the work they’ve produced for this week’s study group task. Once they have, be sure to provide your own constructive feedback and commentary.
If you missed this week’s group task, or are catching up with the course – you’re not alone – be sure to provide your own constructive feedback and commentary.
