What is Mindfulness?
We all react differently to stressful situations whether it’s a physical response or an emotional outburst. Lets face it, stress can cause each one of us to lose it sometimes! We can all learn to control how we react by applying mindfulness.
Mindfulness is the act of bringing awareness to the present moment by acknowledging and accepting thoughts, feelings and sensations in the body. It's about paying attention to what is happening right here, right now, in the present moment - in your body & in your mind.
This practice of being mindful can give you the space you need to make better decisions for more positive outcomes.
