Mindfulness Basics

You don't need any spiritual belief to practice and benefit from mindfulness. Living mindfully means we look at, and respond to life’s situations differently. By practicing purposeful self awareness we are less reactive to emotions such as anxiety and stress and we can find a calmer and more satisfying path through our daily life.

What is living mindfully? What does it mean for your day to day life? Mindfulness is a process of developing moment to moment inner awareness. Scientific studies show that mindfulness is effective in the treatment of pain, anxiety, and depression, and can boost productivity, creativity, and personal happiness.
