Mindfulness Empowers You
Mindfulness is the practice of focusing your attention on the present moment and accepting it without judgment. It can bring positive changes in your attitudes and behaviours. Mindfulness allows you to see your thoughts and feelings early, before they overwhelm you. It helps you to be aware of WHAT you are thinking WHEN you are thinking it. This allows you to CHOOSE which thoughts to strengthen and which thoughts to let go.

Mindfulness can improve well-being. Being mindful helps you become truly engaged in activities and provides you the ability to deal with adverse events. By focusing on the here and now, you are less likely to get caught up in the vicious circle of regrets from the past or worries about the future. It teaches you to be less preoccupied about material success and self-esteem but instead to learn to make deep and meaningful connections with yourself, your family and friends.
