In this fast paced, hyperconnected world where multi-tasking is the norm, taking a pause and training your attention is a radical act. Mindfulness meditation is a powerful tool that can help us upgrade our inner technology – the mind, to keep up with demands of our increasingly complex world. Just like our bodies, our minds need training to function at their best. Mindfulness meditation is a form of mental training that supports the mind to be more focussed, clear and effective. It’s often described as the practice of bringing your full attention, in an open, non-judgmental way to the present moment. Mindfulness is sweeping across the globe and training has now been implemented in many different sectors including in schools, hospitals, corporations, and government.
There is now compelling evidence supporting the fact that mindfulness meditation when practised regularly, can lead to:
Structural changes in the brain associated with enhanced mental performance.
Reduced stress and its negative impact on the body and mind.
Improved physical and mental well being.
Reduced genetic ageing through its protective impact on gene expression and degeneration.
Enhanced immune function.
There's only one way to find out the benefits of meditation, give it a go!
