MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness

In the nuanced and transformative world of mindfulness meditation, the concept of 'embodiment' takes on a profound significance. To embody mindfulness is to fully inhabit and be genuinely present within our physical selves. It is a journey of experiencing the world around us through our senses, engaging in each moment without judgment or the pull of distractions. This practice is less about intellectualising experiences and more about immersing in them, feeling deeply and wholly.

Mindfulness meditation is a form of practice in which one focuses on one's breath, physical sensations, thoughts and feelings as they come in and out of awareness. It often involves developing an attitude of acceptance and non-judgment, noticing one's thoughts and feelings without attachment, and a gentle bringing of attention back to the present moment.


Mindfulness is a skill that can be cultivated through regular practice and can be used in daily life to reduce stress levels and improve well-being.


Practicing mindfulness can have significant mental and physical benefits such as reduced stress, improved concentration and focus, increased self-awareness, better emotional regulation and improved physical health including lower blood pressure and improved sleep.


Informal and formal mindfulness practice can help you to become more present and aware of their body and thoughts, reducing the amount of time spent ruminating on the past or worrying about the future. It can also help to bring acceptance and clarity to difficult emotions, helping to better manage situations instead of becoming overwhelmed.
