What is Mindfulness & Why Should I Be Mindful?

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

What is mindfulness?

Do you find life buzzing by you in incredible speed?

Are you living in the past wishing you could go back and change a few things?

Do you have anxiety about the future and where you will be in five years?

Is your mind feeling fried staring and relying on technology?

Take a ten minutes every day to enjoy the moments.

Do you feel stress, guilt, tired and emotional. Are you not

achieving or performing as well as you could or comparing good self to others?

These are common themes that come up in my massage room from clients who have hit the overwhelm button and do not know how to come back.

It’s time to sit or lie down, switch off all your technology (unless using a mindfulness app of course, then we pop it on aeroplane mode).

Stop what we are doing and smell the roses. Breathe in a gentle calming mindful breath in and learn some new strategies for your daily life as you exhale!

Mindfulness can change how we look and feel about our lives in the most simplest and humbling way!

Greater Good Magazine’s definition of Mindfulness is:

‘Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.’
