Mindfulness is about embracing the beauty of mono-tasking and being aware of the present moment. In response to constant distraction, over stimulus and mounting levels of demands and stress in our society - the new science of mindfulness is emerging and proving to be one of the most powerful exercises to improve overall health and wellness.

In addition to improving General Well-Being, mindfulness and meditation are shown to have profound effects on:

  • Managing your emotions
  • Improving productivity and creativity
  • Improving self-awareness
  • Improving focus and motivation towards a task
  • Improving decision making
  • Promoting gratitude, kindness, and compassion towards self and others
  • Allowing you to perceive different experiences in a different, more positive light
  • Helping to conquer and tame your ego - that voice in your head that is obsessive, never satisfied and drives you to neglect the present moment; ultimately making you feel unhappy and miserable.

Mental and physical health benefits include:

  • Reduction in pain, swelling, blood pressure and heart rate
  • Reduction in inflammatory and autoimmune conditions such as arthritis and irritable bowel syndrome
  • Promotes release of happy chemicals/hormones which support a good mood
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved digestion Mindfulness activity works by literally changing your brain and central nervous system - specifically by forming new and permanent neural connections and the structure of grain matter in brain tissue. All this can be achieved simply by training your thoughts!
