What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is training for the brain. Each time we practise, we are developing our mindfulness muscles. Research has shown that what we do and what we experience changes our brain.
Here, in their “Meet the Expert” film, Dr. Gail Davies explains for Nuffield Health’s employees and clients what mindfulness is and some of the benefits.
“Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally to things as they are.”
Williams,Teasdale, Segal and Kabat-Zinn (2007)
“When I first started mindfulness I hadn’t realised just how messy my life had become. Between juggling work, friends and university I had lost the ability to listen to my own thoughts. Mindfulness has helped me to rediscover the world through a calmer mind and to achieve and overcome circumstances beyond my belief.”
Sanya, Medical Student, Imperial College
