It wasn’t until the past year or so when I began to consider a new way of thinking. Constantly on the go and full of stress, I often found myself chasing my tail, never truly accomplishing anything. There always was something more important to do or to think about than what was happening at that very moment- yet that moment is what really matters.

Mindfulness is a practice of being fully present in the moment and consciously aware of your current surroundings; not what happened yesterday or what is going on tomorrow. 

Mindfulness is simply focusing on your present state- where you are, what you’re doing, how you’re feeling.

Mindfulness increases peace, self control, concentration, reduces anxiety and can remedy sleep problems. Having a conscious mind also improves physical and mental health issues, creating an even more balanced you!
