Being mindful means paying attention to the present moment with kindness and self compassion

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is based on an ancient buddhist practice, it is a form of mental training and a meditation technique. Being mindful means paying & maintaining attention to the present moment experience with kindness and self compassion. While practicing Mindfulness the mind is concentrated and at rest at the same time, we become aware of ourselves and the world around.

Science showed that an unfocused mind is an unhappy mind

Stress is an ongoing topic in our life. Minor stress can add up during the day and acute stress can become chronic stress. Hyperarousal can be a chronic state of body and mind and exhaustion follows any time soon. Science showed that an unfocused mind is an unhappy mind.1) In Mindfulness we therefore learn to maintain and shift our attention by Anchoring: Connecting with our anchor the breath in our Meditations.

rief daily mediation enhances attention, memory, mood and emotional regulation in non-experienced meditators

Science studies showed an improved regulation of emotion, a reduction of stress and a positive effect on our Immune System. Mindfulness has a positive impact on Anxiety, Insomnia and is part of a variety of clinical treatments.3)

We integrate Mindful Breathing in between during the day, this will improve your breathing, your concentration and relaxation. People under stress, anxiety or pain breathe more quickly and less regularly. Meditators have a slower breath, indicating reduced automatic response, better mood and improved health.2)

For whom is Mindfulness? Actually for everyone who wants to be prepared for difficult life situations, in which we normally tend to lose our balance without support. And for everyone who wants to learn to cope better with stressful daily life. It is not a Psychotherapy, but it can be a good idea to visit a Mindfulness class, if you are waiting for your Psychotherapy or alongside a Psychotherapy. In some cases it might sufficient to work with a Mindfulness teacher who can provide personal support.
