Mindfulness is a word that describes many different skills and activities that improve our cognitive, spiritual and emotional experience. Mindfulness is in itself the experience we have through an activity like deep breathing, relaxation meditations and yoga. This activity is designed to stimulate the brain and bring energy and vitality back into the body as well as improving concentration and internal visualisation.
Hot Tips for Your Mindfulness Practice
- I would recommend learning this activity first and practising it a few times in a row until you get it.
- Practising a few times each day boosts the effects of this simple technique.
- Mindfulness is cumulative – which means the more often you practice the more noticeable the effects
