Why Practicing Mindfulness?
Your mind is like any other part of your being, it benefits from understanding how it works and you can train it to work better. Specifically, the Mindfulness practice has the following benefits:
- Stability of mind – keeping your mind in a clear waking space than at other extremes of a dull or anxious mind;
- Flexibility of mind – the ability to shift your mind to any subject you choose, instead of bouncing between a number of problems;
- Self-awareness – to be aware of the contents of your mind and to understand the typical patterns of your mind;
- Action instead of reaction – becoming less reactive, e.g. when you are angry and choose how to act.
