Jay’s Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Course

Here is a fantastic internet-based MIndfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course developed by Jay Uhdinger, along with an illustrator friend.

I cannot speak highly enough of this course so please try it out… and keep using it.

It’s free! It’s fun! And a big thank you to Jay!!

Chapter 1: Happiness, Control and a Simple Model In this chapter you learn about the ABC model which is so freaking essential everyone has to know it. It explains how thoughts and emotions are related to each other.

Chapter 1 Practice: The ABCDEF Worksheet In this practice lesson you learn how to work with the ABC model. If this gets too ‘school-like’ for you simply write your thoughts and emotions down every evening for a week and see what it does to you.

Writing things down does make a difference and helps you to see how thoughts lead to emotions and how emotions can also impact your thoughts.

Chapter 2: Awareness & our Spectrum of Perception In this chapter, you learn about the two states of being. One is being and the other is doing. This is important to understand because all our life we are trained to be good in the state of doing while our natural state is the state of being.

If you learn to get into the state of being more often your life will change dramatically. This brings back the kid in you and puts things into perspective.

Chapter 2 Practice: Mindfulness Meditation You train your awareness by doing mindfulness meditation. In this lesson I explain what meditation is really all about and give you some tips on how to meditate. You won’t come across any spiritual yada yada.

Meditation is just a mental exercise that can bring you great benefits like being able to take yourself out of situations and just observe. It also makes you more stress resilient.

Chapter 3: Rumination & Faulty Thinking In this lesson you learn about rumination or thinking in a loop. If you enjoy thinking, you know that your brain sometimes simply doesn’t want to stop.

It keeps going on and on and on thinking about things over and over. It is important that you become aware of it and…

Chapter 3 Extended: Faulty Thinking – What is it and How to Get Over It? … realize some of the typical ways of faulty thinking we humans tend to have. You will also learn a few ways to overcome your faulty thinking.

Chapter 3 Practice: 11 Steps to Stop Ruminating Learn some more ways to stop ruminating. These steps will help you to calm your mind and simply worry less so you have more time to enjoy life.

Chapter 4: Do Good, be Happy If you do not believe in karma you do not have to. Studies in the field of Positive Psychology show that doing good things and being kind is one of the best ways to make YOURSELF happy.

Chapter 4 Practice: Is coming soon.. These will be my final words in this course. Something epic, maybe I hike up a mountain and shoot a video there!

You can easily cover all this in about two hours. These are two hours well spent. Invest the time in yourself and upgrade yourself for a lifetime.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy is super powerful and hopefully will become more widely available in the near future.

What you learn here is not meant to help you fix problems (even though this is possible too), but it is meant to upgrade your life to a whole new level. Good stuff!
