Mindfulness

“Mindfulness allows you to be fully present in the here and now in order to enjoy the wonders of life that have the power to heal, transform, and nourish us.”

-Thich Nhat Hanh

Practicing mindfulness is all about being aware of the present moment—your thoughts, your feelings and sensations in your body. Mindfulness can be practiced anytime and anywhere. 

Frequent practice of mindfulness actually leads to structural changes in the brain, allowing for a myriad of positive outcomes. Here are just a few of the benefits of mindfulness practice:

  • kindness
  • patience
  • compassion
  • listening skills toward others
  • increases executive function
  • better impulse control
  • longer attention spans

If you’re interested in a more structured form of mindfulness practice, check out the Calm App. It’s a great place to start. It’s free and has several meditations to choose from. Make a start as just one minute a day of active mindfulness is better than none at all.
