Feeling stressed or anxious is part of day to day life and can stop us from completing even the smallest tasks. Recently Mindfulness has come to the forefront as a simple and easy way to tackle the things that bring us down. It’s free and can be done wherever you are, you just need your mind! The aim of Mindfulness is to make us more positive and happy and therefore can help us make the most of our days.

Mindfulness is being aware in the present moment and accepting thoughts and feelings without placing judgment on yourself or others. It involves the use of a collection of tactics from a multitude of disciplines within psychology, therapy, counselling and even Buddhism.

Worldwide studies have found that it can be a successful tool in the reduction of stress, anxiety and in increasing positive thinking.

There are three key concepts behind mindfulness, Awareness of feelings, Non-Judgement of yourself or others and Living in the present not worrying about the past or future.
