involves being fully present in the moment, observing thoughts and emotions
without judgment, and cultivating a sense of calm and clarity


Mindfulness is a
state of mental, physical and environmental awareness in the present moment. This awareness can be achieved by the calm acknowledgement of the current situation and the impact your thoughts, feelings, and actions have on
yourself and others around you.

Summed up, being mindful means you are fully
aware of the present moment and what is happening around and within you.

Living in the moment can help reduce anxiety and lower stress levels. It helps us become more self-aware of thoughts and feelings and allows us to identify what causes them.'Living in the moment is a phase that beautifully describes the aspect of being mindful.

what is mindfulness


Being more self-aware and mindful can help us enjoy life more and develop empathy towards others. It can also allow us to understand ourselves better and worktowards self-development and more positive lifestyles.

When we start to be more in the present moment, we begin to notice the small things that we may normally take for granted. Sometimes the littlest things in life can spark our happiness and appreciation. Mindfulness can also enable us to become more aware of our own thought patterns and the emotional feelings that we experience. We
can easily be caught up in negative mental patterns and allow unpleasant influences in the world around us to affect our thoughts.

However, mindfulness allows us to stand back from our thoughts and begin to analyse and monitor its patterns. Gradually, we can start to retrain our minds to notice when our negative thoughts start, and what has caused them. We then begin to rationalise and restructure, so they do not irrationally control our emotions and action.
Our minds may sometimes find it challenging to let go of negative thoughts.

However, mindfulness can help us deal with these thoughts more effectively and productively. When practising mindfulness, we can begin to ask: "am I able to change or control this problem at this present time?". If not, gently accept and let it go.

You can face the same challenges in 2 different mind frames. Being calm can aid in finding effective and considerate solutions.
Practising awareness can also help us identify the starting signs of stress and anxiety and allow us to deal with them before they become a bigger problem.


As with everything, daily practice is the key. Take the time throughout the day
to stop and allow yourself to analyse how you feel, your environment and how
your recent actions or words have impacted others.

Daily Meditation can also be beneficial in allowing you to become more aware of
your body and the environment.

Take a few minutes to be alone and take note of what is happening around you
free of judgment.

Become more observant without judgment of your surroundings.

Pay attention to the thoughts you think, the words you say, and the actions that
you take. Ask yourself what the reason is behind these thoughts.

If you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed or stressed, bring yourself back to the
present moment.

Be mindful of not being too hard on yourself. Practice self-love and acceptance.

Allow yourself to make mistakes and learn from them rather than having regrets. We are human, and that is how we learn from an early age.
