In today’s hyper-connected and super-busy World, we can sometimes get lost in the flow. Zipping from one stressful situation to another – from one urgent activity to the next.
We often rush through the day, blind to everything except the one thing that’s invading our space at that exact moment.
Mindfulness is all about slowing down. Experiencing the moment. Taking the time to just ‘BE’.
The idea of mindfulness (‘a mental state achieved by focusing your awareness on the present moment’) has been around in the Western World for about 70 years, or so. Although it’s been around in Eastern culture for around 2,500 years.
Mindfulness can be described as
“a practice of calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations as exactly that. By acknowledging them, without acting on them, we can learn to live a more relaxed, healthy and purposeful life”.
Studies have shown that stress, rumination, worry and fear contribute to mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. Through mindfulness, we can change the way we experience our world for the better.
My aim, is to help you relieve some of the stresses and strains from your life, by providing simple, yet effective tools, tips, techniques, exercises and guidance.
Mostly, this will be from my experience on my learning journey, but also, I’ll let you know about helpful sites, blogs, books and courses, etc. that I come across on my travels. Between us, we can become more mindful and complete versions of ourselves.
My hope, is that you’ll share your experiences, to help me become better too 🙂
