For some of us, it can be difficult to live in the present. This is where mindfulness is important. When you practice mindfulness you will be able to manage stress better, cope better with serious illness and reduce anxiety and depression. Daily practice of mindfulness increases the ability to relax and improves your self-esteem.
Meditation encourages you to pay attention to your thoughts, actions, and body. Finding time for mindfulness is within everyone’s reach. You can practice it, anytime of the day and anywhere in the world. All you need to do is become more aware of your breath, the parts of your body connected to the ground and the environment around you. To become more aware overall, is a good way to practice mindfulness.
Once you begin to become more mindful, you gradually realize how much your mind races and focuses on the past and future. This is a good sign. You acknowledge these thoughts and return to the present moment.
