Mindfulness Matters

Mindfulness - simply put, means being mindful. Mindfulness is one of the most powerful tools that you can learn to influence your life in a positive and empowering way that will have lasting effects. The benefits of mindfulness have been proven to have life-altering effects for those who implement it into their daily lives on a regular basis. Simply becoming aware of mindfulness as a practice means you will start to become a more self-aware and grounded person. The mind-body connection from which mindfulness is rooted is essential to living a calm, balanced and happy life. Paying attention to what is going on in our minds and learning to recognise and understand our own thoughts improves our ability to manage our emotions, focus and understand our own unique and individual needs.


How Mindfulness can help manage stress and anxiety

Sometimes, we become so wrapped up in our own heads and in the business of our daily lives that we end up feeling stressed, tired or burned out. Without realising, it is easy to slip into the habit of running on autopilot. We rush around, trying to do as much as possible and constantly feeling pressured, like there is not enough time. We may feel like time is moving faster and faster and that our “to-do” lists just keep getting longer and longer. Our emotions can sometimes get the better of us, and heightened stress levels or constant anxiety can make us feel like we are unable to cope with life’s daily challenges. This is where mindfulness comes in. Mindfulness stops us in our tracks and allows us to focus on what is happening right now, in this moment. We learn to recognise how we respond to certain situations and how we can turn unhelpful responses into more positive ones. We learn to recognise our own thoughts and feelings as separate from “us”. This really is the key to staying calm and centred as we go about our day and allows us to be much more resilient to what life may throw at us. Researchers have found that mindfulness techniques are sop powerful they even increase grey matter in the brain. Grey matter concentration is associated with memory and learning, regulation of emotions, self-processing and perspective taking. The mind-body connection associated with mindfulness-based practices strengthens such regions of the brain and promotes growth.
