Take a moment each day to connect with yourself and the present moment and experience a wealth of wellbeing benefits.
Mindfulness meditation – a practice of bringing your full attention to the present moment in an open, non-judgmental way – can be a powerful wellbeing tool, helping to enhance many aspects of our lives. When practiced regularly, it can help us to become more calm, clear and focused, with greater resilience to the pressures and demands of our busy worlds.
There is evidence to suggest that mindfulness practice can lead to:
• Improved physical and mental well being
• Reduced stress and its negative impact on the body and mind
• Reduced genetic ageing through its protective impact on gene expression and degeneration
• Increased happiness
• Enhanced immune function
• Structural changes in the brain associated with enhanced mental performance
