WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
What is Mindfulness?
According to Jon Kabat-Zinn the founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reducation, “Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally."
What are the benefits of Mindfulness?
Have you ever been upset and triggered by a person or event? Have you ever felt overwhelmed by an experience, possibly a job interview or an upcoming exam? Have you felt so stressed out or triggered by a situation/person that it started to impact your daily activities, such as interfering with your sleep or how you interact with others?
If you have experienced similar situations as described above then mindfulness practices may offer you some relief. Mindfulness is an Evidenced Based Practice which has been extensively researched. Studies have shown the positive benefits of Mindfulness Meditation for mental, emotional and physical well-being.
Some of the benefits of Mindfulness include:
Reduction in stress
Improved focus and attention
Decrease in blood pressure
Improved immune system
Improvement in emotion regulation
Increased focus and concentration
Neuroplasticity: Growth in the brain and brain activity
