What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is paying attention in the present moment to thoughts, feelings and body sensations with full acceptance. Cultivating mindful attention will deepen your ability to be present, help you manage difficult experiences, and create space for wise choices in all areas of your life. Mindfulness can help people learn new healthy ways of managing several common conditions including:
- Anxiety and depression
- Chronic pain
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart disease
- Demanding work and life situations
How Can Mindfulness Help Me?
Mindfulness can help you become more focused and aware of what’s happening in the present moment instead of feeling stuck in the past or chronically worried about the future. Mindfulness will help you quiet self-criticism and doubt, so that you can be more confident, productive, and happy. Mindfulness will also help you pay attention to your physical health so that you can tap into your body’s natural resources for healing while minimizing the negative impact of stress physically, emotionally, and mentally.
