“Meditation is to be aware of what is going on: in your body, in your feelings, in your mind, and in the world.”

- Thich Nhat Hanh

MINDFULNESS

n: the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something

Mindfulness as a concept is about being intensely aware about what you are feeling and what you are sensing in your present moment, without letting those emotions and sensations drive your actions. Simply put, it is being aware of what is happening around you without wishing it were different. 

When we notice things in our environment, we tend to instinctively judge or react to them. Those reactions come from the emotional state we are in and therefore distort our perspective.

Mindfulness helps us to observe life impartially as it happens, and to skillfully respond to the good and bad in an open, non-judgemental way. 

Modern day living has become increasingly complex with rising expectations and personal ambitions. Despite having achieved professional success, acquiring all material comforts that reflect one’s success and stature in society, inner happiness and peace still elude many, leaving them feeling incomplete & restless…
The current situation of pandemic has further aggravated stress levels and anxiety due to the forced isolation and exposure to illness, despair and loss of dear ones to the dreaded virus. Many of us are currently carrying remarkable levels of fear and anxiety that impact our ability to stay calm in challenging situations & prevent us from employing our best potential, creatively and productively. Both at home and at work.

Today, healthcare professionals are increasingly recommending mindfulness practices to combat depression and anxiety and to calm, clear and ground the heart and mind. Medical studies suggest that mindfulness practices may help people manage stress, cope better with serious illness and reduce anxiety and depression. Many people who practice mindfulness report an increased ability to relax, a greater enthusiasm for life and improved self-esteem. When you practice mindfulness, you are building the capacity to train your attention to what you want to focus on. Your ability to choose your focus, and thus your mental state, directly impacts your emotional, mental and physical health and overall wellbeing.
