Mindfulness is being aware of “what is” in the present moment. It involves observing both your inner world of thoughts, feelings and sensations, and the outer world of constantly changing phenomena.
Developing increased mindfulness has been shown to increase self esteem and reduce physical pain. The Mindfulness Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn is one of a range of ways you can explore how mindfulness may help enhance your life and increase your healing. There is a free on-line MBSR course at Palouse Mindfulness. You will find a range of tools and videos available for you to try out.
