Simply put mindfulness is about being present, really being aware of what is happening in your body and mind moment to moment, not judging your experience as good or bad but accepting it, letting it be as best you can.
Mindfulness is about learning to direct our attention to our experience as it unfolds, rather than “living in our heads”. Too often, the pace and stress of modern living leave us caught up in a stream of thoughts and feelings, trapped in past problems or overwhelmed by future anxieties. Mindfulness helps us to wake up to our lives and get the most out of each day. Rather than worrying about what has happened or might happen, it trains us to explore and respond skillfully to whatever is happening right now.
By doing this we learn not to get as caught up in our thoughts, we don’t take things so personally as a result life feels a bit lighter and we become happier…..simple.
Over the last 40 years or so there has been a growing interest in mindfulness and the benefits it provides to help manage the complexities of modern life. At times we can all feel overwhelmed, find it difficult to cope or feel that we are not living life to its fullest. Research shows mindfulness can help us become:
more aware of others and improve relationships
more productive at work and home
Mindfulness has benefited a huge range of people from all walks of life and is currently taught in a great many settings including sport, schools, corporate industry, mental health settings, prisons and even the houses of parliament.
Mindfulness is recommended in the NICE guidelines as an effective treatment for depression and has been harnessed by companies such as Google and Sony to create happier and more productive employees. Millions of people have benefited from the practice of mindful awareness and so can you.
