What is Mindfulness and How Can it Help You?

Have you ever noticed when you are trying to concentration that your mind takes flight?  Often times we lose touch with our body, and pretty soon we’re engrossed in obsessive thoughts about something that just happened or fretting about the future. And that makes us anxious.

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

Stress is the worst thing for our bodies and studies show that practicing presence through meditation, breathing techniques, rest and focusing on a single task at a time alleviate stress and lead you to a healthier place.

Meditation can seem overwhelming or foreign but it is already a part of our daily life.  Have you ever felt fully present, happy and enjoying the moment you are in at this very moment?  That is mindfulness.  Adding a meditation practice to your self-care routine can improve focus, clarity and joy – even a few minutes a day has been scientifically proven to help!

Make sure to notice the beautiful mark you’ve made in the places where your feet have landed.
