What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not be overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
While mindfulness is something we all naturally possess, it’s more readily available to us when we practice on a daily basis.
Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you’re being mindful. And there’s growing research showing that when you train your brain to be mindful, you’re actually re-modelling the physical structure of your brain.
We recently attended a talk by Trish Tutton, a mindfulness expert. See more information here on how Trish can help you. Many of our clients have a very busy work and home life. Finding time to focus on the present can help your state of mind, reduce anxiety and improve mental health.
Blending mindfulness into your workplace can have great results. Listen to what Trish has to say:
