what is mindfulness?
it can all seem a bit of a maze, can't it? There are a lot of misconceptions about Mindfulness being 'fluff and nonsense' and that's simply not true.
Mindfulness is a scientifically proven way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life, as it unfolds. It is scientifically proven to help with stress, anxiety, to help manage your inner critic and live life more positively. It also boosts the immune system and increases overall wellbeing.
You learn different ways to relate to your thoughts, become more self aware and learn to better look after yourself.
It's not a 'quick fix' - it becomes a way of life, but it really can make such a difference, if you allow Mindfulness into your life.
Here's one of my favourite definitions:
"Being aware of what's happening right now, without wanting it to be different;
enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will);
being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).”
– James Baraz
