Mindfulness can be cultivated through mindfulness meditation, a systematic method of focusing your attention
Mindfulness is quite simply focusing all your attention on the present moment – that’s the sights, smells and sounds around you, as well as your thoughts, feelings, emotions – and accepting things without judgement. It may seem simple, but ask yourself when you last saw, touched and experienced your surroundings on your commute to work. You’ll quickly notice you’re often passing through life in an effort to get somewhere, and not actually living it. Mindfulness addresses that. With practise you can improve your relationships with yourself and with those around you. And in doing so many people who practice mindfulness find that they are less likely to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets over the past, are less preoccupied with concerns about success and self-esteem, and are better able to form deep connections with others. Studies have been confirming the positive impact of mindfulness on stress levels, anxiety and overall mental wellbeing for a while now. But it’s only recently that they’ve picked up on why this might be. It seems as though our worries are left behind when we focus solely on the present. We then return to them with a greater sense of perspective, and they begin to have less of an influence on our everyday life. The power of mindfulness is now so accepted it’s officially recognised by the NHS as an effective method of combating depression. What’s more, 68% of GPs think it would be beneficial for all patients to learn mindfulness, according to the mental health foundation’s be mindful report.
Professor emeritus Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder and former director of the stress reduction clinic at the university of Massachusetts medical centre, helped to bring the practice of mindfulness meditation into mainstream medicine and demonstrated that practicing mindfulness can bring improvements in both physical and psychological symptoms as well as positive changes in health attitudes and behaviours. In addition to formal meditation, you can also cultivate mindfulness informally by focusing your attention on your moment-to-moment sensations during everyday activities. This is done by single-tasking—doing one thing at a time and giving it your full attention. As you floss your teeth, pet the dog, or eat an apple, slow down the process and be fully present as it unfolds and involves all of your senses.
