What is Mindfulness?
A good question and a good place to start on your road to sense of self.
Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to what is happening to us in each moment. It helps us become more aware of how we are feeling emotionally, physically and spiritually.
It teaches us how to be aware of our feelings, but also shows us how to observe them. This way we can learn to respond to what is happening, rather than react to what is happening.
Mindfulness helps us make better choices and deal with problems when they arise so we are no longer overwhelmed.
How do you practice mindfulness?
Through meditation, movement, and eventually, in your everyday actions.
Mindfulness is being kind to yourself, being open to your own experiences and learning to observe your sometimes critical dialogue, rather than being in the midst
What can I offer you to help build a mindful practice?
