Welcome to day one of our Mindfulness mini course.
Every day this week we will be guiding you through the power of mindfulness, the whats, the whys, the hows and everything in-between. This course is to here to arm you with everything you need to bring Mindfulness into your daily life.
Let’s start at the most obvious place… What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness has become hugely popular over the past few years – you’ve probably come across it at some point or maybe you use it regularly. It has gone from being a fringe practice to the mainstream and is a fantastic way to reduce stress, anxiety and burnout and live a more focussed and purposeful lifestyle.
Mindfulness is not a new invention, it has been practised for thousands of years. It’s aim? To end suffering. So what is it and how do you do it?
Mindfulness is paying attention to what is happening in the current moment without judgement. Both within our thoughts and bodies and the world around us. It encourages us to create a natural curiosity about what we are feeling in the current moment, good or bad. To learn to sit with it without the need to make changes, purely to acknowledge them and learn to just be.
Practicing mindfulness helps us to turn our focus to experiences occurring in the present moment in order to help create awareness and gratitude. It can help us to notice our stresses or negative thoughts early on in order to change the way we perceive them.
It has many benefits including easing anxiety and stress, lowering blood pressure and creating a more positive mindset. When we learn to be more present and notice life as it is happening to us, we can begin to become more grateful for what we have, right now, in this moment.
