We live in a fast-paced and hectic world, where it is easy to get blind sighted by the pressures of daily life. People are often troubled by the past or consumed with worries about the future.
What is mindfulness?
The aim of mindfulness is for the individual to work with their mind and bodies, understanding themselves, and learn how to live in the present in a positive manner. It is about promoting an individual’s wellbeing.
Mindfulness is about the here and now. The main focus of mindfulness is about the present moment, being aware of it and accepting it. Mindfulness involves being non-judgemental and calm about the current moment and taking each moment as it comes and accepting it.
The individual will calmly begin to acknowledge the present moment, accept the thoughts, bodily sensations and feelings he/she is having.
When participating in mindfulness it is important to slow down thoughts, and breathe slowly. The therapist will then teach you how to release those feelings from your head, into the rest of the body so you are aware of the feeling.
How can mindfulness help me?
Mindfulness can help you in various different ways. Firstly it can make you more aware of yourself, your thoughts and your feelings. It can help you slow down, breathe and take a moment to be calm. As well as this mindfulness can be practised in daily life and after being taught mindfulness, you can go away from the session, practise it and eventually incorporate it into your everyday life making you more calm, relaxed and able to deal with everyday situations in a more positive way.
