Mindfulness provides stress reduction by using a combination of skills derived from meditation. It is a tool that is suitable to be used by anyone, at all levels, at all times. Learning to live in the moment, not focusing on the past or the future is something that everyone can benefit from. Contributing to enhancing a stress reduced life balance. Focusing on the moment, not the past, nor the present, giving a clear insight into daily activities as well as reducing the stress of future and past events. Whether you undertake Mindfulness as an individual or adopt an organisational approach, Mindfulness reaps benefits.

The only way we have of influencing the future is to own the present, however we find it. If we inhabit this moment with full awareness, the next moment will be very different because of our very presence in this one. Then we just might find imaginative ways to fully live the life that is actually ours to live. Can we experience joy and satisfaction as well as suffering? What about being more at home in our skin within the maelstrom? What about tasting ease of wellbeing, even genuine happiness? This is what is at stake here. This is the gift of the present moment, held in awareness, non-judgementally, with a little kindness.
