What is mindfulness? Basically, it’s slowing down enough to notice all the little things inside and around you without judgment. While this sounds simple, it can be difficult in the world today.
I was going to put together a video to convey what mindfulness is but I found the one above which I think perfectly and beautifully conveys the messages that I wanted to convey. It describes what mindfulness is and why it’s important in your life.
Mindfulness can help with:
- Stress reduction
- Chronic pain
- Coronary disease
- Sleep problems
- Autoimmune diseases
Research demonstrates that mindfulness can:
- Improve our brain’s ability to process information
- Reduce brain-related problems in old age
- Strengthen our immune system
- Lift our mood and reduce stress.
It’s used in business, hospitals, prisons, courtrooms, schools and universities.
Mindfulness can be practiced by anyone at any time.
Mindfulness is for people who want to be more fully aware, improve their overall quality of life, be happier and live life to the fullest.
