Mindfulness is a naturally-arising state of clear non-judgmental awareness that can be developed through specific cognitive practices and applied in a range of activities including movement, art and the duties of daily life. Mindfulness-based practices cultivate your natural capacity for clarity and deeper insight into your emotional needs and have been shown to*:
increase emotional resilience
improve sleep quality
manage and reduce physical pain symptoms
diminish stress-related somatic symptoms
*Please note that while considered to be generally beneficial, certain mindfulness practices, including meditation, may not be helpful in addressing specific emotional challenges and disorders. Mindfulness and related practices, like mental health counseling in general, may result in unique responses that a qualified mindfulness instructor and counselor can guide you through safely.
