Many people feel stressed and find it difficult to cope with the pressures in their life. Every day in the UK, a quarter of a million people miss work because of stress, with 75 per cent of all illnesses thought to be stress-related. Mindfulness can help with stress reduction.

What is Mindfulness?

It is a way of paying attention to the present moment, using techniques like heightened senses, meditation, breathing and yoga. It helps us become more aware of our thoughts and feelings, and so better able to manage them. Practicing mindfulness can significantly decrease stress, improve self-awareness and give you a feeling of being in control. It can also improve physical problems like hypertension, heart disease and chronic pain.

Anyone can learn mindfulness. It’s simple, you can practice it anywhere, and the results can be life-changing.
