Mindfulness Corner

Mindfulness is a pretty straightforward word. It suggests that the mind is fully attending to what’s happening, to what you’re doing, to the space you’re moving through. That might seem trivial, except for the annoying fact that we so often drift off and veer from the matter at hand. Our mind wonders, and pretty soon we’re engrossed in thoughts about something that just happened or fretting about the future. And that makes us anxious.

Mindfulness is a quality that every human being already possesses, it’s not something you have to conjure up, you just have to learn how to access it.

To find out why you should give mindfulness a try, please click HERE to watch a brief video by Dr Shauna Shapiro.
