Mindful Living for Health & Wellbeing

Mindfulness is the energy that helps us recognize and accept unconditionally the conditions that are present in our lives.

 

Mindfulness helps us to live in the present moment and not in the past or the future. Mindfulness is a learned experience & does require practice. You can learn to be mindful in every moment of your daily life.

Mindfulness practices acceptance and non judgement which increases our happiness and satisfaction in life.
Mindfulness is when you are truly there, mind and body together.

You breathe in and out mindfully, you bring your mind back to your body, and you are there. When your mind is there with your body, you are established in the present moment.

 

Practising mindfulness helps you:
• to be fully present, here and now
• to experience unpleasant thoughts and feelings safely
• to become aware of what you're avoiding
• to become more connected to yourself, to others and to the world around you
• to become less judgmental
• to increase self-awareness
• to become less disturbed by and less reactive to unpleasant experiences
• to learn the distinction between you and your thoughts
• to have more direct contact with the world, rather than living through your thoughts
• to learn that everything changes; that thoughts and feelings come and go like the weather
• to have more balance, less emotional volatility
• to experience more calm and peacefulness
• to develop self-acceptance and self-compassion

 

Some of the benefits of cultivating this type of awareness and skill include:
• Stress-reduction
• Increased clarity of mind, balance, energy, zest for life
• Improve complex problem-solving and decision-making
• Enhanced leadership
• Heightened emotional intelligence, less reactive
• Mood regulation and immune system enhancement

Relaxation Workshops & Classes

Research has indicated that regular elicitation of the relaxation response, along with other stress management strategies, can have a beneficial effect on a number of stress related physiological and psychological health problems. In fact it can help any health problem that is caused or exacerbated by chronic stress.

 

Relaxation is not a panacea for all ills, but should be used as part of an overall stress management strategy.

 

Relaxing and resting stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to restore and repair your physical body. Pressing your pause button will help you reset your system.

 

Relaxation techniques help create inner balance of body, mind, and spirit helping people find their center. In a relaxed state, you have better clarity, make better decisions, and take better care of yourself. 

 

In general, studies show that with consistent practice, relaxation techniques can potentially reduce symptoms or improve outcomes in the following conditions:
• Nausea
• Pain & Chronic Pain
• Irritable bowel syndrome
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Stress
• Stress related disorders
• High blood pressure
• High cholesterol
• Diabetes
• Panic disorders
• Chronic tension headaches
• Fibromyalgia
• Insomnia
• Psoriasis
• Arthritis
 Relaxation techniques are meant to complement usual medical care.
