What is Mindfulness?

The benefits of mindfulness

Ways to learn and practice Mindfulness

At its most basic level mindfulness is about learning to live in the present moment. Studies suggest that we spend an average of 43% of our waking hours, inside our own heads, worrying about an imagined future or dwelling on things that have past, all of which are simply memories or imagination but we turn these thoughts into feelings, and we can start to feel worried, sad or even depressed.

If we spent more time paying attention to what is actually going on right now, we start to realise that our thoughts are not real things. Mindfulness is a state of 'being' rather than 'doing'

 

At wellbeingmind we specialise in teaching simplicity, with mindful practices that you can apply in your life everyday, to bring about a mentally quiet, clear and emotionally calm state.

 

 

 

Much has been written about the benefits that a mindful practice can bring, The NHS encourages us to pay more attention to the present moment as a way to improve our mental wellbeing.

 

Mindfulness is recommended by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as a way to prevent depression in people who have had 3 or more bouts of depression in the past

 

Professor Mark Williams states that Mindfulness has the ability to put you back in control of your life, bringing a long-term change in your mood and level of happiness and wellbeing,
