Do you know we have a staggering 34 to 50 thoughts occupying our mind PER minute! Now that is exhausting – IF we allow it to be.
All these thoughts - and over 90% of them - are repetitive. Our conscious and subconscious minds are often in conflict with one other. Positive thoughts, feelings and behaviours versus negative ones…
By creating a state of mindfulness each day "a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations" we create an instant state of calmness and clarity of mind.
Our heart rate slows down to a healthy beat, even our cells start to regenerate. We begin to create a healthier mind and body, enabling us to be more productive, to feel self confident... the benefits can be endless!
You need only take ten minutes each day to be silent and focus on your breath, or meditate, listen to beautiful music or practice self hypnosis - all these techniques create mindfulness.
