Mindfulness has rustled up a storm recently amongst those seeking respite from the everyday pandemonium of modern life.
So what is mindfulness, and what’s all the fuss about? Mindfulness centres around distancing yourself from the stresses of modern living by gaining control of your thoughts, feelings and sensations and focusing on living in the moment. By consciously paying attention to the present, you can avoid peripheral thoughts, emotions and anxiety, and better manage yourself. Practised regularly, mindfulness can lift your mood, reduce stress levels, aid concentration and reduce insomnia.
