Everyone experiences stress. However, prolonged periods of stress have a serious impact on our physical and emotional well-being, leaving us feeling exhausted, depressed and unable to cope.
Mindfulness is a way to manage stress. It is a relaxation technique which aims to restore calm to our mind and body. Over time, this calming process helps to repair our mind and body and so prevent further physical damage.
When meditating, our heart rate and breathing slow down, using oxygen more. This allows us to restore our natural equilibrium.
Mindfulness lowers anxiety and stress levels, minimising panic attacks, improve creativity, problem solving, memory, comprehension and focus, as well as generally improving your sense of well-being.
