We all have busy lives and responsibilities, although we often neglect our biggest responsibility ourselves. However when we do have a second to relax. Our minds can often be busy with thoughts and emotions, which at times are not relevant to the here and now.
Many of us can replay a previous days, weeks or even months disagreement or regret. This is why it is important to allow our minds to quieten and relax. By doing this we are also being kinder to ourselves by not replaying issues over and over again in our minds. This can result in reducing unnecessary stress and promoting the feeling of positivity.
When we focus on the present, we can stop our minds running away with unhelpful thoughts and feelings. This can also help us deal with situations in the present more effectively, as we are not making assumptions and drawing from past emotions.
Over the next 7 days together we will practice different exercises and techniques to encourage us to be mindful and refocus on the present. Make a note in your diary each day as a prompt to take part.
