Mindfulness is a mind and body based approach with the aim of helping its practitioners to decrease stress and anxiety and cope with everyday life by changing the way they think and feel about their experiences.
Its roots lie in Buddhism and meditation and it teaches you to how to enjoy the here and now, without engaging in the harmful practice of reliving past bad experiences.
Our modern urban life has become incredibly comples.
It’s amazing when you stop and think how complicated your life can be at times.
