Mindfulness is “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Jon Kabat Zinn (Professor of Medication Emeritus Stress Reduction Clinic and the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine).
Some of the evidence-based benefits of mindfulness include:
- Reduced stress, anxiety and depression
- Greater resilience
- Enhanced creativity
- Improved relationships
- Improved focus and concentration
- Improved health and wellbeing
- Greater confidence and self-esteem
- Ability to have better quality sleep
- Improved work-life balance and greater work satisfaction
- Pain reduction
Many adults and children and young people benefit from mindfulness but like anything else no ‘one size fits all’ and its benefits will differ from person to person, depending on their situation. However, if you are feeling stressed, anxious or simply overwhelmed and would like to be better equipped to manage your thoughts and emotions and help to develop your resilience to cope in difficult situations then mindfulness may well be the way for you.
Many qualified mindfulness practitioners will offer you a one-to-one consultation before you undertake a course with them to make sure that mindfulness meets your individual needs. Always ask if this is available and make sure that they are qualified in this area; they will have the relevant certification.
Here at Mindfulness @ Equilibre we offer ‘free taster sessions’ that anyone is invited to attend to find out if mindfulness is for them. Just email Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out when the next one is taking place near you.
Learning mindfulness is achieved through practice, practice, practice. However, if you are committed to achieving this then you will see the benefit. Make sure you find a course or workshop that meets your learning style. However, learning mindfulness is about trying it out for yourself.
