Mindfulness improves your ability to make positive choices, rather than being on ‘auto pilot’ where you keep getting the same results over and over.
Mindfulness increases your awareness of what is happening in the present moment and your internal world, and gives you access to the wisdom in your body.
The benefits you can gain from practising mindfulness are (but not limited to)
- improved brain functioning
- increased immune system
- lower blood pressure
- deeper self-awareness
To build a habit can be as easy as taking 5 mindful breaths per day.
As you breathe in, notice the rise and fall of your chest, the temperature of your breath in and out.
What happens to your shoulders?
How does it make you feel?
This practice can be built up to 10 minutes a day where increased, physical, mental and emotional health will be experienced.
