What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is an increasingly popular topic on TV, in workplaces, and in schools. Mindfulness is the idea of taking a dedicated space focus on how your body feels, what emotions you are having, and to make efforts to calm those physical and emotional aspects of ourselves. Mindfulness is an intentional slowing down, noticing our behaviors, and the way those behaviors impact our relationships. Mindfulness is by definition, a practice. It takes work and it is often very difficult in the beginning. We live in a society that moves constantly and we are accustomed to constant information and immediate results. Mindfulness is, in some ways, the exact opposite of that. This is a time/space/place to set aside all of the other outside noise and to just pay attention to ourselves. Mindfulness can look a lot of ways, and we’ll be discussing what some of those ways are in the next few days. Below is a review of 5 top mindfulness apps. When we are beginning to slow down it can be really helpful to have something that guides us in that process. Check these out and see what you think. If you have more questions about mindfulness, or are curious about how mindfulness might help with anxiety, depression, addiction, relationships, trauma symptoms, etc. give us a call.
