Mindfulness is a basic human quality, a way of paying attention to the present moment in your body, mind, and the world around you. Mindfulness is a way of learning to pay wise attention to whatever is happening in your life that allows you a greater sense of connection both inwardly and outwardly.
Mindfulness is also a practice, a systematic method aimed at cultivating clarity, insight, and understanding. In the context of your health, mindfulness is a way for you to experientially learn to take better care of yourself by exploring and understanding the interplay of mind and body and mobilizing your own inner resources for coping and growing.
In recent years the field of neuroscience has been able to demonstrate that mindfulness practice has significant positive effects on brain functioning. Various studies show how mindfulness-based practices improve mental and physical health, including serious mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
The beauty of mindfulness is that we all contain its benefits within us. At Mindful Mountain you’ll learn how to tap into this powerful tool for well-being.
