Why Should You Explore Mindfulness?

With it's roots stemming back thousands of years, the practice of mindfulness is something that has found itself at the forefront of sustained health and well being in recent years. It's a psychological process that has stood the test of time and with good reason, but only in the relatively recent modern day has all corners of the planet really sat up to take notice. Perhaps that's down to the hectic lifestyles that many of us now lead, dragging ourselves from pillar to post in a world that struggles to hit pause.

The result? To varying degrees we're often left both physically and mentally drained.

Pressures at work, worries and concerns from our personal lives, a lack of direction and diverted attention.
This is where mindfulness can step in.... But why should it help?

In layman's terms....

Mindfulness meditation can help you to rewire your brain so that you are better aware of your thoughts and emotions. In return, an ability is slowly developed that will guide you to better control.

Raise your hand if you've ever experienced the following....

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Chronic Pain

  • Lack of Focus

  • Addiction

These are just a few of the things that regular mindful meditators can overcome.
We become more aware of our experience in the present moment and use it as a distinctive method to balance our emotions.

Studies have shown that mindfulness and meditation reduce key indicators of stress like high blood pressure. It has also proved an effective method in reducing the impact of chronic pain and can assist in relieving the dependence one may have on drugs or alcohol. It can also help regulate your eating, kick a smoking habit or source management solutions for things such as OCD.

So To Summarise...

With dedication and perseverance mindfulness can lead to you experiencing an improved awareness of your emotions and an increase in your attentiveness and engagement. This can reduce a whole host of issues we face in both our daily lives and long term well being.

Become aware of yourself and the world around you at this very moment.

So THAT is why you should explore mindfulness!
