It’s no surprise that the nation’s mental health has taken a battering since COVID began and it’s now become a real problem. This is where MINDFULNESS can help.
👉🏻Mindfulness has become extremely popular in recent years, here’s why:
✅Rather than worrying about the future or dwelling on the past, mindfulness switches your focus to what’s happening right now, enabling you to be fully engaged in the present moment.
✅Mindfulness has long been used to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and other negative emotions. It can help to bring you into the present by focusing your attention on a single repetitive action, such as your breathing or a few repeated words.
✨Using mindfulness to stay focused on the present might seem straightforward, but it takes practice to reap all the benefits.
When you first start practicing, you’ll likely find that your focus keeps wandering back to your worries or regrets. But don’t get disheartened. Each time you draw your focus back to the present, you’re strengthening a new mental habit that can help you break free of fretting about the past or stressing about the future. Using an app or audio download can also help focus your attention, especially when you’re starting out.
✨A basic mindfulness meditation:
Find a quiet place where you won’t be interrupted or distracted and get comfortable.
Close your eyes and find a point of focus, such as your breathing—the sensation of air flowing into your nostrils and out of your mouth or your belly rising and falling—or a meaningful word that you repeat throughout the meditation.
Don’t worry about distracting thoughts that go through your mind or about how well you’re doing. If thoughts intrude your relaxation session, don’t fight them, just gently turn your attention back to your point of focus, without judgment.
