What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the ability of one’s mind to pay attention to the present surroundings, to become aware of the present moment. This must happen out of curiosity and not judgment.
We run into busy days and sometimes sleepless nights and we may find it difficult to find the right balance in our lives.
Many people spend the majority of their day feeling stressed and overwhelmed with thoughts, often finding it difficult to focus. It may feel as if they aren’t present in their own lives.
Mindfulness acts as a powerful tool, helping in cultivating skills that are essential for human living. This way we learn to pay attention, calm down and nurture joy.
Mindfulness increases tenderness and kindness towards ourselves, restoring the dimensions of our being. It isn’t that they are missing, but that we miss noticing them. When your mind clarifies and opens, your heart also does the same.
It releases ‘happy chemicals’ in the brain, helping in fighting with health issues, including digestive problems, lowering blood pressure, releasing tension, etc.
Your subconscious mind receives positive vibes, in turn filling your soul with positive energy. People around you can resonate with the same, they then enjoy your company and thus you become the centre of attraction for all.
With mindfulness, we can live our lives with the right balance and greater joy

What is the difference between Mindfulness and Meditation?
Mindfulness is the awareness of something.
Meditation is the awareness of nothing.
Both are like mirror images of each other. Mindfulness supports and enriches meditation. Meditation nurtures and expands mindfulness.
You can practice mindfulness in any part of the day. Meditation can be incorporated into some part of your day.
There are different types of meditation, some involve yoga and others can involve chanting sounds.
Meditation complements mindfulness and vice versa. If you start practicing both, you can lead a happy and satisfying life.
