Life is movement.
The more life there is, the more flexibility there is,
The more fluid you are, the more you are alive.
- Arnaud Desjardins
Mindfulness means being aware. Being aware of your thoughts, emotions, feelings, bodily sensations (including breath), physical surroundings, your existence and the purpose of life. Mindful means living in the present moment and accepting it as it is (non-judgementally). Research suggests that by being mindful we actually train and remodel the physical structure of our brain. This awareness is believed to develop our emotional control and prohibit us from becoming over reactive and overwhelming under difficult circumstances. These practices can be collaborated with any therapeutic approach and have been found very effective for many psychological issues such as depression, anxiety, chronic pain, stress, substance abuse, insomnia, trauma and personality disorders.
