What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a simple, yet powerful training of your attention. Once you learn the techniques, you can just about pay attention to what is happening at the present moment – your awareness of sensations, thoughts, and emotions – in a nonjudgmental way.
Learning these powerful mindfulness practices can improve your overall cognitive functions and interrupt your habitual way of thinking towards negative thoughts from your past and even anxieties of the future. These often generate stress on top of the pressures of day to day life.
The Neuroscience of Mindfulness
The science behind mindfulness is astounding. With hundreds of research papers and endless studies in the field of neuroscience, psychology, and physical medicine over the last 30 years, there are a wealth of healthy benefits documented for individuals who immerse themselves in learning to meditate.
Practicing mindfulness is the perfect antidote to overcome stress and the pressures of life, which affect your performance and quality of life. You begin to take control of your thoughts and regulate emotions. Aside from its efficacy on various mental and physical illnesses, the benefits of mindfulness will improve your relationship satisfaction, overall well-being, and performance.
