Benefits of Mindfulness
“Mindfulness brings awareness about the present moment, the only instance when life happens.”
Mindfulness is a state of mind when the mind is not full. When the mind let’s go of the emotional and mental load and is instead clear and fluid allowing thoughts, perceptions and feelings to flow freely and smoothly without hindrance or getting stuck is the essence of mindfulness. It is in fact a training of the mind to be in the present moment and return to it again and again. It brings attention and awareness to the current moment without any judgement helping to manage emotions and thoughts positively. Mindfulness fosters wellbeing and freedom from stress. It helps to develop gratitude and enhances relationships. It enhances resilience to cope with any kind of emotional troubles and mental issues. It improves focus and concentration, bringing clarity, better decision making abilities, higher levels of creative thinking and enhances performance. On the physical level, Mindfulness increases the body’s immune response, bolstering the ability to fight disease. Accelerating the recovery process, it even slows down the progression of cognitive disorders related to aging.
