Life can be difficult sometimes ...
When you can’t see the wood for the trees; when you don’t feel you’re properly in control in your work or home life; when too many days just feel – well, grey …
Maybe you’ve come here because you want to lessen your stress, lift your low mood or get rid of that feeling of overwhelm.
Or you want a better night’s sleep or to improve the quality of your relationships.
Or you want to connect to a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.
Either way, you know something’s missing or just making you plain unhappy.
Mindfulness can help
Once you’ve learned it, it’s a coping tool you’ll be able to lean on (and build on) for life.
Research has shown that participating in a mindfulness course – and learning how to practice on a daily basis – creates positive changes in the brain’s neural pathways. These changes can help prevent depressive episodes, improve stress resilience, concentration, memory, immune function and even happiness.
Over the past decades, there has been a vast amount of scientific research that has shown mindfulness to be an effective treatment in the management of anxiety and depression. It’s why it’s now used widely within the NHS.
