How Mindfulness Works
Our minds our constantly full of thoughts, good and bad, but there is always something 'on our mind' whether its something someone said that upset us, or what we need to do with the day ahead, planning and organising our daily lives. Sometimes we bring up past experiences which can take over, we dwell on them and pull the situation apart over and over again.
Mindfullness allows us to be more in the moment, aware of what we are doing, what we are experiencing, and the sensations we feel, see, hear, smell & taste. It brings us into a state of 'Being' rather than 'existing'.
Practicing Mindfulness brings about subtle changes, an inner calm, peace, stilling our minds, dispelling anxiety, worry and negative thoughts.
Its great medicine for the body too, when we are happy and calm, our bodies relax and we experience less pain! Our hormones become more balanced, and a positive sense of well being is restored.
There are plenty of Mindfullness & Meditation classes out there, online and locally. Give it a try!
