If you’ve started exploring ways to look after your wellbeing, you’ve probably heard of mindfulness. This video sums up what mindfulness is and why we need it in out lives.
Mindfulness can be brought into a wide range of activities, some of which we will explore in more depth in upcoming blogs. Just a few mindful moments throughout the day can make a positive difference.
- We already looked at mindful eating in a recent blog
- Go for a mindful walk, using all your senses to experience it to the full
- Do some mindful movement such as yoga
- Pay close attention to the full length of an inhale and exhale with mindful breathing
We suggest that you experiment with the various types of mindfulness to see what best suits you. You’ll know what’s working for you when you start to notice emotions and sensations as they arise. The earlier these come into you awareness, the sooner you can act rather that waiting until things feel as though they are spiralling out of control.
