The following information is about mindfulness, its many benefits, and how easy it is to incorporate the daily practices into our lives.
Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment. It brings awareness to your thoughts, feelings, physical reactions, and your surrounding environment and acknowledges what you’re experiencing, rather than dwelling in the past or projecting to the future.
How many times have you found yourself anxious in thought, wishing you had said or done something differently or worried about a future event? When we focus on the past or the future, we miss out on our present, which is the only time we truly have any influence and control.
Mindfulness allows us to navigate the mind, instead of being led by it. Studies have shown mindfulness boosts mood, increases happiness, cognitive function and focus, reduces stress and anxiety, aids in better sleep and improves overall physical and emotional well-being. Benefits have been reported by just incorporating even a few minutes throughout the day. Why wait? Get your mindful minutes in today!
Mindfulness can be practiced anytime and anywhere, without sacrificing valuable time in your schedule. There are many simple ways to begin practicing mindfulness, including:
Don’t forget to appreciate life’s simple moments and tune-in to your body’s responses.
