Mindfulness is clinically proven to aid calmness, clarity of thought and focus. Using techniques such as present moment awareness and meditation, mindfulness can help us become more aware of our passing thoughts and emotions without being distracted or overwhelmed by them. Mindfulness is also clinically proven to reduce stress and blood pressure while alleviating the symptoms of depression and anxiety. In addition those who practice mindfulness often find they sleep better, work more efficiently and find greater happiness and fulfilment in their relationships and life in general.
Mindfulness can be used as a tool to manage your wellbeing and mental health. Some people call mental health ‘emotional health’ or ‘wellbeing’ . We all have times when we feel down, stressed or frightened; most of the time those feelings pass, but sometimes they develop into a more serious problem, and this could happen to any one of us.
It’s important to maintain your mental health, but being mentally healthy doesn’t just mean that you don’t have a mental health problem. With good mental health, you can:
• Make the most of your potential
• Cope with life
• Play a full part in your family, workplace, community and among friends
While research is still growing in the area of mindfulness, evidence has suggested the benefit of mindfulness to health and wellbeing, with results showing positive effects on several aspects of whole-person health, including the mind, the brain, the body, and behaviour, as well as a person’s relationships with others.
Mindfulness has also shown to help with a number of conditions, including stress, anxiety, depression, addictive behaviours such as alcohol or substance misuse and gambling, and physical problems like hypertension, heart disease and chronic pain.
Mindfulness is recommended as a treatment for some people who experience common mental health problems, such as stress, anxiety and depression. It’s also for those who simply want
to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Depending on what you’re looking for, there are different ways to learn mindfulness, which can help people in different ways. Anyone can learn and practise mindfulness: children, young people and adults can all benefit.
The Coach Approach uses Mindfulness techniques in all its services but we are very excited to announce that from summer 2020 we will be offering the Breathworks Mindfulness for Health Course. We are currently under going teacher training with Breathworks.
