‘Mindfulness – A mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.’ Oxford Dictionary
Mindfulness is a practice of being in the moment. In today’s modern lifestyle it is often a challenge to be fully present in the moment we are in . We are often thinking ahead, projecting ourselves into the future or even dwelling on the past. We also have so many distractions now with modern technology that we rarely give ourselves time to stop and switch off from the every day tasks, concerns and thoughts that can consume our lives.
Mindfulness is used to help alleviate a whole host of conditions physically, mentally and emotionally. It is known to help increase levels of clarity, focus and happiness. It brings a deeper level of richness and sense of connection to life!
Everyone can benefit from this practice, mindfulness is now taught in schools and even pre-schools. It is also taught in a variety of ways to people of different backgrounds and abilities. In the medical world mindfulness is taught to people who are finding the challenges of life overwhelming and are experiencing chronic pain, depression, stress and/or anxiety.
The best way to learn mindfulness is to practice it, you cannot be taught this principle through reading or watching information about it you must actually experience it through practice.

“Hearing voices or feeling paranoid are common experiences which can often be a reaction to trauma, abuse or deprivation. Calling them symptoms of mental illness, psychosis or schizophrenia is only one way of thinking about them, with advantages and disadvantages.”
