Discover how mindfulness can help you manage stress and anxiety.
- “Mindfulness allows us to recognise our options, choose our responses wisely, and take control over the direction of our lives.”
Mindfulness is one of the most powerful tools that you can learn to influence your life in a positive and empowering way that will have lasting effects. The benefits of mindfulness have been proven to have life-altering effects for those who implement it into their daily lives on a regular basis. Simply becoming aware of mindfulness as a practice means you will start to become a more self-aware and grounded person. The mind-body connection from which mindfulness is rooted is essential to living a calm, balanced and happy life. Paying attention to what is going on in our minds and learning to recognise and understand our own thoughts improves our ability to manage our emotions, focus and understand our own unique and individual needs.
How Mindfulness can help manage stress and anxiety?
Sometimes, we become so wrapped up in our own heads and in the business of our daily lives that we end up feeling stressed, tired or burned out. Without realising, it is easy to slip into the habit of running on autopilot. We rush around, trying to do as much as possible and constantly feeling pressured, like there is not enough time. We may feel like time is moving faster and faster and that our “to-do” lists just keep getting longer and longer. Our emotions can sometimes get the better of us, and heightened stress levels or constant anxiety can make us feel like we are unable to cope with life’s daily challenges. This is where mindfulness comes in. Mindfulness stops us in our tracks and allows us to focus on what is happening right now, in this moment. We learn to recognise how we respond to certain situations and how we can turn unhelpful responses into more positive ones. We learn to recognise our own thoughts and feelings as separate from “us”. This really is the key to staying calm and centred as we go about our day and allows us to be much more resilient to what life may throw at us. Researchers have found that mindfulness techniques are so powerful they even increase grey matter in the brain. Grey matter concentration is associated with memory and learning, regulation of emotions, self-processing and perspective taking. The mind-body connection associated with mindfulness-based practices strengthens such regions of the brain and promotes growth.
How can being more mindful benefit me?
Do you ever feel like stress or anxiety get the better of you on a regular basis? Maybe you get easily overwhelmed or feel like your thoughts are racing, causing you to feel panicked? Being more mindful is the first step to a more calm and grounded way of living. The more aware we are of our surroundings and how we respond to them, the more in control we feel of our emotional reactions. Mindfulness is empowering because we can learn to choose how we respond to events, no matter how stressful they may seem. The more in tune we become with our minds, the easier this becomes. We become less reactive and judgemental. As a result, we become more understanding, self-aware and adaptive. Our bodies produce less cortisol and we disengage from the fight-or-flight mode that so much of modern life teaches us to be in. The benefits of learning mindfulness are unlimited. However, even after a few sessions you will feel noticeable changes.

However, as with anything, the more you practice it, the better you get. In order to achieve the full benefits of mindfulness a regular practice is needed.

What the experts say:
“Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present; inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now.”
Founder of MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction)
“What really matters for success, character, happiness and life long achievements is a definite set of emotional skills – your EQ — not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional IQ tests.”
Psychologist and Writer
“In the last decade or so, science has discovered a tremendous amount about the role emotions play in our lives. Researchers have found that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and abilities to handle feelings will determine our success and happiness in all walks of life, including family relationships.”
