What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment, without judgment. One just observes their thoughts and feeling without attaching a good or bad to label to them. It’s the mind-body process of noticing, shifting, and rewiring the brain.
By learning to master the habit of being more present to each moment, it creates a mental shift. A mental shift that is required to understand change. A mental shift that is required to desire change. A mental shift that is required to accept change. The client learns to focus on the positive vs the negative while also experiencing greater focus, productivity, and life satisfaction. And, as result, the client learns how to manage their own mind.
Who can it help?
Mindfulness can help the client learn how to identify and manage their emotions; as a result, gain more control over their behavior. Unconscious thoughts and emotions will reveal themselves as the client continues to further explore their current experiences and relationships.
Habits are learned; thus, learning the habit of staying focused and present the moment rather than dwell on the past or anticipate the future, can have some positive results on the body as well as, such as lowering stress levels, reduce harmful ruminating thoughts, improve self-awareness, help promote personal care, and learn how to control one’s depression and anxiety.
