What is mindfulness?

Supported by international scientific analysis, mindfulness is a learnt practice that empowers individuals to improve their mental wellbeing. Mindfulness encourages the cultivation of present moment awareness which results in positive psychological outcomes (happiness, compassion, concentration) and increased mental resilience (ability to cope with stress).

Learning mindfulness is much like going to the gym, but for your mind. Regular practice trains your mind to respond to stressful situations in a balanced manner. In the longer-term, mindfulness has been shown to increase happiness and reduce levels of burnout.

Who is it for?

Mindfulness is a useful skill for anyone that has experienced stress at work or in their daily life. In particular, mindfulness can be useful in:

  • Insomnia
  • Poor concentration
  • Stress due to work
  • Strained relationships
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

How do I learn it?

Mindfulness is best learnt in a course setting. Books and apps are a good starting point, but the skill is best learnt directly from a teacher. A useful book (and the set text for many mindfulness courses) is ‘Finding Peace in a Frantic World’ by Mark Williams.
