for mental health.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) reports that 1 in 4 people will be affected by mental disorders at some point in their lives, placing mental illness amongst the leading causes of ill-health worldwide, with the most common being depression, anxiety and low self esteem, brought about by our increasing hectic lifestyles.
We believe the mind and the body are deeply connected, and just as the body can nourish the mind, the mind has the power to heal and transform the body. Mindfulness is a practice that involves slowing down and paying more attention to the present moment – to our own thoughts, feelings and to the world around us. Regular practice can help us find confidence, clarity and peace, to enjoy the world more and understand ourselves better. A few minutes practice each day has shown to lower heart rate, decrease stress hormones, increase 'feel good' endorphins and improve concentration, memory, and focus. Developing a new perspective through mindfulness, can help us cope better with emotional and physical pain and to combat stress so that we feel kinder, calmer, and more patient.
