So what is Mindfulness? Mindfulness has been practiced by Buddhists for over two thousand years and simply means paying full attention to the here and now – The Present Moment.
As human beings we have up to 50,000 thoughts a day, often automatic, negative and repetitive. Using Mindfulness techniques enables us to switch off our automatic pilot of behaving and take a conscious control of how we are thinking, feeling and acting. Being Mindful helps to prevent anxiety and depression by teaching us how to avoid negative patterns of behaviour from working against ourselves.
