It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much.
Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing.
Some people call this awareness "mindfulness". Mindfulness can help us enjoy life more and understand ourselves better. You can take steps to develop it in your own life.
Becoming more aware of the present moment can help us enjoy the world around us more and understand ourselves better.
When we become more aware of the present moment, we begin to experience afresh things that we have been taking for granted.
Mindfulness helps to prevent a depressive relapse and recurrence of depression. The aim is to increase patient's awareness of present moment to moment experience.
They will receive extensive practice in learning to bring their attention back to the present, using the breath as an anchor and a place to come home to whenever they notice that their attention has drifted to streams of thoughts, worries or a general lack of awareness.
This can be delivered 'one to one' or in groups.
