The act of mindfulness helps you to shifts your thoughts away from your usual preconceptions towards an appreciation of the moment and a larger perspective on like which can bring significant improvements in both physical and mental wellbeing to create positive changes in health, attitudes and behaviours.
The awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose in the present moment and non-judgementally to the unfolding of experience, moment by moment. - Jon Kabat Zinn
This month is 'Mindful March'. Let's use this opportunity for us to create space in our daily lives to pause 5 Minutes each day for an act of mindfulness.
You can choose a mindfulness practice which would fit perfectly into your day by using our downloadable MI MINDFULNESS BINGO board! Keep in a place such as your fridge, journal or mirror as a daily reminder for which one you fancy crossing off that day.
All activities are really simple and easy to do and feel free to extend your pause each time you do a mindful practice. You never know by the end of the month you could be hitting 30 minutes of YOU TIME a day.
Are you up for the challenge? Which Mindful act will you choose to do first?
We would LOVE to see how you're getting on. Head to Instagram and use our hashtags #MIMindfulness #MindfulMarch and tag us @MIWellnessuk
