Mindfulness Meditation Workshop

We hope that you enjoyed the brief taste of mindfulness that we went through today with the Body Scan. The main take-home message from the exercise is that most of the time we are not aware of what is happening within us and around us. If we bring awareness, we can get in touch with aspects of life that otherwise may just slide by us, both the good and the bad.

Why is Mindfulness Good ?

By missing out on the good things life is not as rich as it could be. If you are fully aware of thoughts, feelings and sensations in the body, you can deal with stressful situations more skilfully, make smarter decisions and enjoy the good things in life better.

Through regular mindfulness practice you will:

  • be more accepting of yourself and deal with situations more calmly and effectively;
  • be less worried, irritable, upset, and overworked;
  • be more productive at work – producing better outcomes while feeling more energised;
  • take better care of yourself – more time for self-care and less beating up yourself for things that aren’t perfect or better;
  • be more present for the good moments in your life, such as time with family, noticing your environment, and what your body is doing.
