Mindfulness

Many of us think about trying mindfulness  

and think of meditation and relaxation in that context.

Although this can be part of it and be a welcome side effect, it is so much more.

It is more about being fully present and live your life according to your values.

And how does that work?

Let's start exploring and on that journey you will find ways and techniques and exercises

to be fully present and engaging in the here and now,

unhook from limiting and frightening emotions and behaviors,

reduce stress and anxiety

and be acceptant of the circumstances you can't change.

 

 

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.

 

People have been meditating for thousands of years. But while the practice is not new, science is just catching up to its benefits. Recent studies show meditation and mindfulness can have a positive impact on stress, anxiety, focus, creativity and even relationships. I’ll teach you how to meditate, what you do with it is up to you.
