Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment, on purpose, without needing it to be any other way. In other words, it’s living with an intention, to purposefully pay attention to the present, with an attitude of curiosity and kindness. Living mindfully allows for greater well-being of mind and body. Mindfulness is developed through the practice of mindfulness meditation.
In the Mind-Body Clinic, we offer classes, groups, workshops and retreats to teach and support the cultivation of mindfulness.
Practicing mindfulness meditation can help you:
- Stress less
- Sleep well
- Relax on demand
- Focus better when reading, writing and listening to lectures
- Tame your inner critic
- Develop greater trust in yourself
- Be less confused and distracted by all the random thoughts that pop into your mind
- Build resilience
- Feel good
- And be well, so you can do well!
