Mindfulness involves paying attention to our own subjective thoughts, feelings and body sensations, in a way that can increase awareness, help us manage difficult experience and increase space to make wise choices.
You learn specific skills for working with unhealthy emotional reactions, increasing calm and focus, and a positive frame of mind.
Mindfulness is the quality of attention we bring to the events in our lives. It is the process of bringing our awareness to what we are doing at the time we are doing it. It is purposely being engaged in our actions, feelings, physical sensations, and thoughts.
It is open to ALL – anybody can practice mindfulness. People who practice mindfulness discover a natural state of mind in which they are focused, present and aware. They have greater emotional regulation and an increased ability to adopt different perspectives.
