WHAT IS MINDFULNESS ?
Mindfulness is quite simply focusing all your attention on the present moment – that’s the sights, smells and sounds around you, as well as your thoughts, feelings, emotions – and accepting things without judgement. It may seem simple, but ask yourself when you last saw, touched and experienced your surroundings on your commute to work. You’ll quickly notice you’re often passing through life in an effort to get somewhere, and not actually living it.
Mindfulness addresses that. With practise you can improve your relationships with yourself and with those around you. And in doing so you become a happier, more positive person.

BENEFITS OF MINDFUL MOVEMENT
The NHS also recognises mindfulness benefits
Studies have been confirming the positive impact of mindfulness on stress levels, anxiety and overall mental wellbeing for a while now. But it’s only recently that they’ve picked up on why this might be. It seems as though our worries are left behind when we focus solely on the present. We then return to them with a greater sense of perspective, and they begin to have less of an influence on our everyday life.
The power of mindfulness is now so accepted it’s officially recognised by the NHS as an effective method of combating depression. What’s more, 68% of GPs think it would be beneficial for all patients to learn mindfulness (according to the Mental Health Foundation’s Be Mindful report). That’s as big an advert for mindfulness as we’ve ever seen.
