Mindfulness is one aspect of meditation, that can be used in daily life to help bring thought patterns back from scattered thinking, to a more present and centred state.
It is a technique that can be learned and used effectively after some instruction and practice. It is not a skill that is developed quickly or should be thought of as a quick solution, but rather a decision to add some discipline into how we perceive thought and the process of thinking.
Over time it can be a powerful tool in alleviating pressure and stress as well as having an overall benefit on life experiences and health.
Some other useful meditation techniques include breath work, reflective as well as creative meditation. Each requiring a slightly different approach and generating different results.
For those interested Mindeeze offers tuition on meditation and its usefulness in reducing pressure and stress.
