Practice Mindfulness to declutter a busy brain

Here’s some quotes from the experts and boffins, they explain it far better than we can:

‘Mindfulness is a very simple form of meditation that was little known in the West until recently. A typical meditation consists of focusing your full attention on your breath as it flows in and out of your body. Focusing on each breath in this way allows you to observe your thoughts as they arise in your mind and, little by little, to let go of struggling with them.’

                                                                                                                              (Professor Mark Williams)

‘The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) as an effective treatment for depression and the prevention of depression relapse. Research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more time (sometime for 20 years or more) find that taking the programme and learning these skills helps to reduce considerably their chances that depression will return.’

                                                                                                                                             (www.mbct.co.uk)

‘At first, mindfulness can seem like an intangible concept. However, practicing mindfulness is, quite simply, the act of concentrating on your breathing and being aware of what is going on around you in the present moment. The more you do it, the more the simplicity of it becomes clear and the benefits manifold. It lightens the mind and the spirit.’

                                                                                            (Tiddy Rowan, The Little Book of Mindfulness)
