Enhance your psychological wellbeing and free your thoughts
What is Mindfulness?
Have you ever driven your car and your mind is miles away, thinking of the other million things you have to do that day? When you are in this state of ‘auto-pilot’, you are not focussed on your current experience and are not in the ‘here and now’. Mindfulness is the opposite of being in auto-pilot mode. It’s a skill that can free you from being overly preoccupied with your thoughts about the past and future that can easily stress you out.
The benefits of mindfulness
Learning to be more mindful has a number of benefits including:
- reducing stress in everyday life
- better health outcomes
- thinking more clearly and not buying into unhelpful ways of thinking
- gives you more choice on how to respond to your feelings
- allows you to become more focussed on tasks, activities and the pleasurable moments of life.
