Whatever your personal wellness goals are, living a happier, healthier life is likely among them. Mindfulness, a huge wellness trend right now, is the practice of bringing your attention and awareness to the present moment. The state of our mind colors and characterizes our existence, and being consciously aware of your mind and body can have a meaningful impact on your health and wellbeing.
Every day, you’re bombarded with stressors: bills, kids, jobs, deadlines...and this stress can cause negative feelings, physical pain, and anxiety. You may get overwhelmed with the stress in your life because you’re focusing on the past or future.
So, how can mindfulness help? The goal of mindfulness is to try and put aside thoughts of the past and the future and stay in the present moment. It’s like a silent form of self-care. You can quiet your mind and relax your body fully while you silently focus on the here and now. And honestly, who couldn’t use a little mental peace and quiet?
