Positive mental health through mindfulness in
Mindfulness practice helps develop positive mental health.
Positive mental health can be developed and achieved through mindfulness practices. Develop mindfulness skills in 8 week guided practices.
I choose to describe mindfulness as a process because it is a technique, when learnt and applied helps you be in the moment. As a skill when its repeatedly practiced and applied it has the ability to change the state of awareness or being. The process of refining the techniques helps develop calmness, clarity and stillness in your daily life (Kabat-Zinn, 2005).
Why is it important to be in the moment?
As the state of awareness constantly changes with new experience, new perspectives are created in all aspects of our lives. Some are good, some not so, by training our mind to be in the moment we develop clarity and stillness .
Mindfulness practice helps deal with physical, emotional, and mental – matters and build resilience. This enables us to live a more balanced life where thoughts and emotions are seen for what they are.

Why Mindfulness Now?
The Mindfulness Now program draws on Mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR). The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends MBCT as a program in the prevention of relapse in recurrent depression.
At Welness-me, mindfulness sessions are delivered as 90min sessions each week, for eight (8) weeks. Across these eight-weeks, individuals learn to understand thoughts and feeling, along with identifying the sensations in the body, and be with these thoughts, emotion and feeling in kindness and compassion. As a personal commitment, it will require daily home meditation practice of 30 – 45 mins, which is a gradual progression over the eight (8) weeks.
Through this process practitioners achieve mental clarity, improve self-care, deal with uncertainty and manage pain. We explore various mindfulness techniques that may be incorporated in our daily lives.
The aim of the Mindfulness program is to empower individuals to deal with thoughts and feelings that hinder positive mental health and emotional wellbeing.
