Why you should try a mindfulness course

We have been hearing more and more about mindfulness for a few years now, in relation to concepts such as well-being and serenity psychological and physical. But what is meant by this word?

Mindfulness is an English term that literally means “awareness.” and indicates the full attention we give to a moment or an action. It is therefore a mental state that involves achieving full awareness of yourself and the present moment you are in: a “here and now” which empowers one to live each moment intensely, without necessarily focusing on a purpose.

But how mindfulness can help us in our daily lives? Let’s find out together in this article.

How to practice mindfulness

For those approaching mindfulness for the first time, it is recommended to do short sessions (about ten minutes), which can then be expanded gradually.

What benefits it brings

Now that we have seen how one can approach mindfulness, let us return to the original question: why you should do it?

Because it is a discipline that can prove extremely useful in everyday life: practicing mindfulness can in fact helping to manage stress and to control negative emotions that we experience in the various contexts of our daily lives. Whether at school, work, college or home, situations often arise that negatively affect our mood and mental and physical well-being, as they generate reactions of stress, anger or feelings of helplessness. Mindfulness intervenes by bringing to one State of full nonjudgmental awareness, helping us to accept the moment and circumstances in which we find ourselves, instead of judging ourselves “guilty” by giving rise to negative thoughts that inevitably lead to a state of malaise.

In addition to its application in everyday life, mindfulness can be an excellent tool to support those who find themselves in a special situation situation that forces them to deal with a significant amount of stress and/or negative feelings. It may be delicate moments in life such as the pregnancy (throughout its course, but also immediately after childbirth), or medical circumstances such as the phase of overcoming trauma or theonset of a conditioning pathology: in this case, mindfulness can act as a support for traditional medical therapies by going to improve the patient’s emotional state.
