Mindfulness is a practice for increasing wellbeing, decreasing distress, and training the mind.

Mindfulness is the practice of giving our full open-hearted attentiveness to what is immediately occurring; physically and mentally, both within and around us.

We use the term mindfulness to refer to the mental attention that is required to be fully aware of our lives. In this this sense, mindfulness is not the goal, but the basis from which we engage with life.

The growing research evidence shows that practising mindfulness can lead to positive life changes by developing:

  • Present moment awareness; enabling us to respond appropriately rather than react habitually
  • Focus and concentration; helping to stabilise a distracted or overly-busy mind
  • Mind-body calm and clarity; for increasing wellbeing and decreasing distress
  • Emotional resilience; for understanding and overcoming difficulties including stress, anxiety and depression
