What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a very effective way of training our attention and increasing our choice of helpful choices and coping skills in our life of challenges, difficulties and opportunities. Mindfulness has been extensively researched as a way of making new more helpful neural connections in our brains. Like a smart brain gym! We practice Mindfulness meditations formal and informal for everyday life situations. We develop our attention, perspective, awareness , diversity, open-minded, willingness, heartfulness, non judgment, curiosity, patience and self compassion to name a few. We cultivate and embody for equanimity.
In our fast-paced world, we are increasingly reacting automatically, too busy to notice much of what is going on inside or around us. We can easily become addicted to the future focus and our digital stimulations. By training our attention in a kindly way, we can live more fully in the present, rather than brooding about the past or worrying about the future, we notice how pleasant and contented we can be in the present moment. Mindfulness helps reduce the power of unhelpful thoughts which are often ‘running the show’. It helps us to connect with our experiences and in time to better manage difficult thoughts, behaviours, reactions and feelings.
We may become more: calm, peaceful, emotionally stable, happy, open minded, resilient, creative, able to communicate with ease in relationships, suffer less, become more health and cope better with ill health or pain more comfortable as a parent, competent and compassionate in problem solving with our challenges and wellbeing.
There are thousands of research studies on mindfulness, including successful trials (http://www.oxfordmindfulness.org/mbct/publications/) and it has been shown to be helpful in reducing stress, anxiety and addictive tendencies, is approved by NICE, and has been shown to have powerful effects on the brain, nervous system and immune responses, health, resilience, creativity, wellebeing amongst other things.
