Benefits of practicing Mindfulness

Research has shown that a regular practice of mindfulness can help to reduce stress, lessen anxiety and improve wellbeing.

Mindfulness has applications in all facets of life, including work, relationships, parenting, education and day to day living. In the context of the workplace a practice of mindfulness helps to increase focus and concentration.

Mindfulness is a human capacity to notice our experience in the present moment with an open and allowing attitude. A mindfulness programme is a form of gentle training which cultivates these skills. A regular practice of mindfulness fosters the ability to be less reactive, more responsive and calmer in facing life’s challenges from moment to moment.

This heightened awareness and attentiveness to what is happening in the present moment allows us to enjoy life more and to relate to life’s difficulties with more ease and less stress.
