Meditation and mindfulness skills are being emphasised everywhere as one of the foundations of good mental health, resilience and happiness. As well as improving your well being, mindfulness has shown to have a number of positive health and physical benefits.
Mindfulness has been scientifically shown to greatly improve concentration, attention and memory. It assists with developing a greater sense of well-being and is a natural and super effective antidote to the build-up of stress and the effects of adrenaline and cortisol in our system.
Developing mindfulness skills and increasing your self-compassion can lead to profound changes in your life. Life can begin to feel more meaningful. You may feel more connected with your life, your loved ones and those around you as well as being better able to handle the inevitability of life’s frustrations and hurdles.
Unfortunately many have equated meditation and mindfulness with religious practices or with personality types that are very different to them and so they feel that this is inaccessible to them. Meditaion training is simply a way in hich you increae your attention and develop greater abnility to control your attention and behaviours. This is why it is an essential skill for all of us and especially for those of us who are impulsive, active (hyperactive) and jump from thought to thought in their minds. It will not cahnge your personality but it may give you greater resililence, will power and immunity against acting out based on strong emotions.
