Mindfulness has numerous impacts on our general wellbeing.
Sessions start with an introduction to mindfulness. We get in touch with our breath and the whole body, to ground ourselves in the present moment and create space and the right condition for creativity to flow.
Reconnecting with our bodies
"An important part of mindfulness is reconnecting with our bodies and the sensations they experience. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment. That might be something as simple as the feel of a banister as we walk upstairs."
Decrease emotional reactivity
"It's easy to stop noticing the world around us. It's also easy to lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling and to end up living 'in our heads' – caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour,". Mindfulness helps us to tune in with our "inner weather" to become aware of our thoughts and feelings and when we see things more clearly we can make changes.
Becoming aware of mental events
"It might be useful to remember that mindfulness isn't about making these thoughts go away, but rather about seeing them as mental events". It is removing the "automatic pilot" from our heads by coming more aware and having the opportunity to do things differently.
