 Mindfulness

 

Mindfulness is simply paying attention to the present moment, with curiousity and kindness.

 

So why do we need it? We're really distracted. We're really stressed out and we're not very good at managing our stress! 

 

 

 

Try this simple mindfulness activity, it will help bring you into the present moment:

 

 

Sit comfortably

 

Take a few moments to contemplate the present moment

 

Close your eyes and listen closely to the sounds around you

 

Listen to the totality of all the sounds without identifying or giving them meaning

 

Hear them as pure sound

 

Be present to the sensations in your body as you sit

 

Be present to the temperature in the room

 

Notice your breath going in and out, follow your breath for a while

 

Be present to the thoughts playing in your mind

 

Be present to your mood and feelings in this moment

 

 

 

 

Equip yourself to succeed with our Manage Stress, Build Resilience workshop
