Mindfulness ManchesterWhen we think of mindfulness, we often think of meditation. However mindfulness is about so much more than this, and the good news is that you don't need to spend hours in a meditative state to achieve the benefits.
Mindfulness can simply be about gently reminding ourselves to be present. Rather than thinking about the past, or the future, just to be in the here and now, and it can be easier than you think to do this.
Perhaps you spend your thoughts ruminating over past events, or negatively forecasting the future, thinking 'what if' and 'if only', going around and around in a constant cycle of worry and fear. This unhelpful thinking can be instrumental in making you feel anxious, depressed, or stressed, and it can also affect your sleep, your health, your work, and your relationships.
The good news is that by learning some simple mindfulness techniques, and in conjunction with the positive psychology work we do, it can really help you manage this way of thinking.
Mindfulness techniques can combine well with solution focused therapy to help you find a better way to live your life to the fullest, helping you to reach those outcomes that you desire.

There are a variety of ways that mindfulness can be beneficial. One of them is that it encourages you to become more aware of the world around you, right at that precise moment in time. It can also help us to experience things in a different way, and perhaps appreciate the things we take for granted more.
By taking a mindful approach you are effectively taking a step back from the stream of thoughts that can flow through our minds, and observing their patterns. This is particularly helpful for people who have a stress or anxiety based disorder, allowing them to recognise their own thoughts and feelings and choose how best to tackle them.
Mindfulness is also a recommended treatment for those who have mild to moderate depression, and is known to reduce the severity of depression and prevent future bouts from developing.
