What is Mindfulness?
I have been on a mental health journey of my own and upon doing some research I learned about the concept of Mindfulness. Just a little background, I struggle with everyday anxiety as well as situational anxiety. Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to the present moment, using techniques like meditation, breathing and yoga. It helps us become more aware of our thoughts and feelings so that, instead of being overwhelmed by them, we’re better able to manage them.
Mindfulness is recommended as a treatment for some people who experience common mental health problems, such as stress, anxiety and depression. It’s also for those who simply want to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Depending on what you’re looking for, there are different ways to learn mindfulness, which can help people differently. Anyone can learn and practice mindfulness: children, young people, and adults can all benefit.
