Mindfulness and Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Combining ancient wisdom and 21st century science, Mindfulness is a powerful practice to help anyone achieve more calm, balance and inner peace in life. Individuals suffering from stress, worry, anxiety, chronic pain, addiction recovery, depression and chronic health issues can particularly benefit.

The word Mindfulness means compassionate and lucid awareness, a sense of knowing what is happening in the external and internal world in the now moment, as it is happening.

Most of us are more used to its opposite: Mindlessness – times when we are not really conscious of what is going on within us, when we find ourselves repeating unhelpful thoughts or behaviours without noticing, eg drinking that whole bottle of wine before realising.

Mindfulness means waking up and becoming fully aware of what is actually happening in the present moment. Not only does this Present-Moment-Awareness retrieve our mind from running forward to the future with imagination (worry), or running over the past,  we are free to use this awareness to make wise and healthy choices.
 

How will practicing Mindfulness benefit me?
 

When you practice mindfulness daily, the benefits you can experience include:

  • Inner calm; increased ease of being
  • More Joy in life
  • Clarity of thought; can see more clearly
  • Increased connection with your true self
  • Peace of Mind
  • Freedom from worry and negative thinking
  • More energy
  • Better sleep
  • Freedom from old negative emotional patterns or habits.
  • More compassionate to yourself and to others.
  • Increased ability to ‘go with the flow’ of life

Essentially, Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges as a by-product of cultivating three related skills:

(a) intentionally paying attention to the present moment of both the internal and external world without judgement

(b) noticing habitual reactions to such events, often characterized by aversion or attachment (commonly resulting in over-thinking)

(c) cultivating the ability to respond to events with full awareness, rather than react, with an attitude of open curiosity and compassion without judgement.

Mindfulness is traditionally cultivated by the daily practice of minfulness meditation in which people learn to pay attention in each moment with full intentionality and with friendly interest.

Daily meditation practice allows people to see the way in which certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions. It allows for the ability to see more clearly leading to the ability to create more wholesome outcomes in everyday life.
 

Chester Mindfulness Online and Mindful Living: a Way of Life
 

Alongside formal Mindfulness Meditation practices, Mindfulness is most helpful when weaved into daily living in a less formal way and become a lifestyle by bringing Mindfulness into routine day-to-day activities, such as mindful eating, drinking, making tea, cleaning, washing, cooking, dressing,  allowing everyday activities to become a meditation in themselves. Mindfulness can also be practiced, exploried and developed by mindful movement practicess such as yoga, tai chi and walking meditations.
