Why is mindfulness important now?

People seem to be losing the ability to “simply be” and “savour the moment”.

With the constant demands and pressures of life, more and more people are struggling with “burn-out”, depression, chronic diseases of lifestyle, relationship issues and loss of purpose and meaning in life.

Most people live their lives on autopilot, trying to multi-task to fit more and more into each moment. This often results in a sense of disconnection to oneself, others and life in general.

Mindfulness is more than just awareness and meditation. It is also about practicing being in life with an attitude of openness, curiosity, patience, kindness and compassion regardless of your current circumstances.

Mindfulness practice helps you to open up to new possibilities for living a life filled with equanimity, peace and joy.

Scientific research indicates that practicing mindfulness and meditation regularly has many benefits, including stress relief, anxiety management, and better concentration and focus.
