Mindfulness is an approach to life that teaches us how to focus our attention. Through regular practice, we can grow increasing awareness, clarity and acceptance of our surroundings.
The frantic nature of modern-day life means it can be difficult to quieten our minds and be in the moment. Our minds are teeming with thoughts about work, family and friends, what’s going on in the news, what’s going on with our health, the past, the future – you name it. So much so that we can often feel ready to burst.
Mindfulness helps us to pay attention to the here and now – and it can help us to cope with the stresses of everyday life. Where we have additional challenges in life, mindfulness can help us to manage pain, anxiety, low mood and the psychological impact of long-term health conditions as part of a wider programme of treatment.
