These are stressful times, and with another lockdown imminent it’s no surprise that many of us are feeling it…
Feeling what, exactly? Stress, anxiety, fear, worry, pain… Or perhaps you’re tackling longer term heath issues? And that’s in addition to everything else!
With so many things to manage and navigate in life – work, bills, family, social media, potential unemployment and a lot of uncertainty, managing our thoughts, both positive and negative, is something that often gets pushed aside. But it is these thoughts that can make the difference between a happy, calm, confident you and an unhappy, stressed one.
Mindfulness is a simple, practical tool that we can all learn to reduce the stress, fear and anxiety in our lives. It can even help to manage chronic pain. By focussing your thoughts and calming your nervous system, it gives you the ability to work with your own situation,whenever and wherever it presents a challenge. Practiced regularly, it can lead to a more peaceful you.
So, when was the last time you took time for yourself? Not for your friends, parents, partner or children, but you? A relaxing bath, a walk in the park, or perhaps even a mindfulness practice…
Taking part in free group mindfulness sessions is a great way to start your journey to managing your emotions, reducing stress and releasing anxiety. A chance to help you develop a mindset that is beneficial, and not detrimental to yourself and those around you. Perhaps you’ve tried everything and nothing seems to help, or perhaps you’ve tried nothing so far but want to improve your mental wellbeing. Whatever position you’re in, now’s your chance to give mindfulness a go and develop the tool kit to manage your circumstances and change your approach to those things that are holding you back.
