At its most basic level mindfulness is about learning to live in the present moment. Studies suggest that on average we live almost half of our waking hours inside our own heads, worrying about an imagined future or dwelling on things that have passed, all of which are simply memories or imagination, but we turn these thoughts into feelings and we can start to feel worried, sad and even depressed.
Mindfulness teaches us to pay attention to what is actually going on right now and soon we begin to realise that our thoughts are not real things and we can become human beings rather than human doings.
At wellbeingmind we specialise in teaching simplicity, with mindfulness practices that you can apply in your life every day, to bring about a mentally quiet, clear and emotionally calm state.
Much has been written about the benefits that a regular mindfulness 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 three 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 about a long-term change in your mood and level of happiness and wellbeing.
Have a look at the following questions, if you answer yes to any of them, mindfulness could be of benefit to you;
- Do you feel stressed?
- Do you find it hard to relax?
- Are you sometimes unkind to yourself?
- Do you have too many negative thoughts?
- Is your head constantly full of internal chatter?
- Do you find it difficult to concentrate or really focus?
- Does your mind feel agitated and you find it hard to sleep?
- Do you ignore your own intuition in favour of listening to others?
- Do you feel unduly rushed and under constant relentless time pressure?
- Do you find it difficult to let go of feelings of anger, resentment or irritation?

What People Say...
'Sharon and Sarah’s Mindfulness at Home sessions were the most perfect ending to each day, bringing us into the moment with loving kindness and a wee bit of peace and calm - especially in the middle of those dark lockdown days! Also, as someone who is completely new to Mindfulness and yet is now studying to teach it to others, linking in to those sessions has been very helpful and supportive - it’s good to see how it should be done by those two amazing ladies! Huge thanks and loving kindness to Sharon and Sarah.
