Mindfulness can feel like a bit of a buzzword, even though the practice has been around for centuries.
It may feel to you that there is some stigma involved with ‘admitting’ you’d like some help or more ‘mindfulness’ in your life.
Or you don’t really understand how it can actually help.
It can often feel like something that is not attainable, or something external to us that would be nice to have but feels somewhat elusive or hard to get.
But the truth is, it’s not that difficult (when you know how), it’s available to everyone and incorporating it into your everyday, can truly change your life and outlook for the better.
It doesn’t have to involve meditating everyday, or doing anything particularly special ~ Although meditation and other practices we will discuss can make a huge difference.
But what it really boils down to is as simple as being present, being aware, noticing and giving attention to what is going on now, in this moment of time, with intention but without judging the experience and allowing it to be what it is.
And it is through this simple reconnection with the everyday moments of our life, by truly living moment to moment, by becoming more conscious and aware, that it is possible to rediscover a sense of peace, calm and joy in your life. To recognise what is important and what is not, what deserves our attention and what doesn’t and to become fully present in a way that means you don’t feel that life is slipping you by, drowning under that never ending to do list and the constant overwhelm and stress it creates.
