What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a self-management tool for pain, stress and illness. It helps you to become more aware of how your mind works, which in turn makes you more aware of your thoughts and feelings so that rather than becoming overwhelmed you are better equipped to deal with things.
By adopting a mindfulness approach you can respond instead of reacting to challenges, meeting your life with openness and acceptance instead of criticism and dissatisfaction.
‘Paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and nonjudgmentally’
