WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness simply means being aware of what is happening right now.
Mindfulness is the practice of deliberately focusing your attention on the present moment, and accepting it without judgement.
If you are feeling sad, angry or fearful, mindfulness helps you to accept these feelings.
In doing so, mindfulness reduces your stress levels and gives you inner peace. It’s a simple but effective form of meditation.
It's accessible to all of us, regardless of our spiritual beliefs.
WHY DO WE NEED MINDFULNESS?
We live in a busy world. You plan your day while commuting to work.
In the rush to complete your ‘to do’ list, you discover that you are losing your connection with everything else, missing out on what you’re doing and how you’re feeling.
You start to feel that everything is getting on top of you but you don’t know why.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your brain has a feature called ‘plasticity’.
This means it can rewire itself and so learn new responses to stress.
