Minding mindfulness

 

Mindfulness is a state of mind in which the individual has a heightened level of awareness of everything around her. It helps pay attention to matters around the person in a particular gentle, disinterested and nonjudgmental manner. Mindfulness meditation is a mental exercise that develops the skill of being deliberately attentive to what is happening without judging it as good or bad.

The chief goal of mindfulness is to increase awareness to help the individual understand oneself and her world better and giving her the opportunity to discern the negative thinking that could be detrimental to well-being. Although this is a spiritual technique that is believed to owe its existence to the teachings of the Buddha; almost all religious practices and traditions recommend the practice of meditative power as a tool to understanding oneself better.

Bring about all-round improvement

Mindfulness is important because it improves all areas of a person’s life. It is powerful because practicing it regularly improves the practitioner’s physical health and reduces the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and death from all causes. This fact is attested by numerous studies done on this subject.

Multifold benefits

Mindfulness is not limited in the benefits it bestows. It helps in dealing with chronic pain and in dealing with crisis situations. It brings down inflammation, boosts the immune response, and slows aging. Mindfulness does even greater wonders for mind-related issues that cause everyday worries, dissatisfaction, and neurotic habits, such as anxiety, ADHD, depression, adjustment disorders, substance abuse, eating disorders, anger, stress and burnout, and relationship difficulties.

Research has proven that mindfulness meditation can bring about positive change in the brain in as little as eight weeks. Mindfulness meditation can be practiced no matter whatever a person is going through. The speaker at this webinar will guide participants on how this can be done.
