How does Mindfulness help?
Firstly it’s important to consider how technology over the last 25 years has shaped our lives. In a world where we can find out anything using our phones or intelligent speakers (Alexa/Google).
Think about your relationship with computers, mobile phones and how you interact with the world. The sheer amount of information that we take in every day is astounding.
Mindfulness can help people better understand their thoughts, feelings, and emotions. It can help a person become more aware of the present moment and how their thoughts, feelings, and emotions can affect their overall well-being.
Through mindfulness, a person can become more aware of the impact of stress, both physically and mentally, and how to better manage it. Mindfulness can also help people become more aware of their thoughts and more mindful of their choices and how they react to situations.

How to practice Mindfulness at home
Practicing Mindfulness at home is a great way to reduce stress, foster self-awareness, and cultivate a sense of inner peace. Here are some tips to help you get started:
- Start with a few mindful breaths. Take a few deep breaths and focus on the sensations in your body. Notice the rise and fall of your chest as you inhale and exhale.
- Create a mindfulness space. Choose a spot in your home that is comfortable and tranquil. It could be your bedroom, living room, or even a corner of the kitchen. Place objects that remind you of tranquillity, such as a scented candle, crystals, or a diffuser with your favourite essential oil.
- Set a timer. Schedule a few minutes a day to practice Mindfulness. Use the timer to keep yourself on track and remind you when it’s time to stop.
- Practice mindful eating. Take the time to appreciate your food. Notice the colours, shapes, and smells of the food before you. Chew slowly and savour each bite.
- Observe your thoughts. Notice any thoughts or emotions that arise without judgment. Acknowledge them, then let them pass.
- Connect with nature. Step outside and observe the beauty of nature. Notice the colors, smells, and sounds of your environment.
I hope these tips help you get started on your mindfulness journey!
