Welcome to Shropshire Mindfulness
MINDFULNESS IS A GREAT LIFE SKILL
By learning simple mindfulness practices, we are able to come back to ourselves and feel alive in each moment as it happens; to feel fully present to our experiences. Not only does it help build emotional resilience, but it provides a way of changing our relationship with stress thus improving well-being.
MINDFULNESS IS SIMPLE TO LEARN AND PRACTICAL TO USE
Through learning simple mindfulness practices based around body awareness and breath, movement and stillness, people can learn to bring a sense of being present to their everyday life. Mindfulness makes us more conscious of our choices and brings a sense of space around our thoughts and decisions. People are able to notice patterns and habits in their lives and by changing the way they think, they begin to change the way their brain processes and this enables them to respond to experiences from a sense of knowing themselves and taking care.
