Mindfulness helps us live life more deeply and to be more in touch with ourselves and others. It helps us practise more self-compassion. Jon Kabat-Zinn defines it as 'paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.' Mindful practice can be adopted in all aspects of life and can be brought into any activity in daily living way.

Benefits of Mindfulness

Research demonstrates the benefits meditation can bring. Mindfulness can improve mood and outlook and can reduce anxiety by reducing a tendency to worry. Mindfulness is built on compassion, kindness and gratitude. These attitudinal behaviours can support our resilience and ability to handle difficult situations – enabling us to experience our lives more fully. Mindfulness can aid focus and concentration. It can encourage health benefits too such as reduced blood pressure and lowering heart rate. Neuroscience shows us that mindful practices can effectively rewire the brain. Habits are not set in stone and may be changed through conscious practice. Solid scientific grounding support of mindfulness' ability to grow new neural habits. Neuroscience shows that the new habits meditation can cultivate and create new neural pathways and so change the ways in which our brains respond to stress. Regular practice enables neural networks to strengthen and to allow new pathways to develop that will serve us more beneficially and improve how we feel and experience life.

Meditation is a practice which enables us to be mindful. It’s a technique inviting you to focus on a particular activity – such as the breath or a specific sense (like sight or the hearing) and so train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state.
