How Can Mindfulness Help?
Mindfulness is: Paying attention to the present moment, without clinging or pushing it away.
When we are suffering, we are often stuck in thoughts and memories of the past or worried and sometimes terrified, of our imagined future.
When combined with talk therapy, mindfulness can help to bring us back to the moment, which can often help us to feel more calm, in control and more able to take necessary action. Research has shown that a regular mindfulness practice can even help to rewire our brains in a positive way, change the way we think, and feel more compassion toward ourselves and others. We can practice mindfulness in our everyday lives and also through formal meditation techniques.
After all, we cannot change the past or the future. All that we can change is what is happening RIGHT NOW!
