Mindfulness is at its heart a way of paying attention to the present moment. It allows us to begin disentangling our minds from the automatic thoughts and feelings that come up in response to stress and worry.
Mindfulness is a practice. It needs to become part of our daily lives in order to have beneficial long lasting results.
There are simple structured exercises and meditation techniques that can ground us in mindfulness, and which can then flow out into our wider world with all its complexities.
Research has shown that the regular practice of mindfulness can provide a reliable anchor point in times of challenge and difficulty.
