Recovery Mindfulness in Exeter

Using mindfulness we can come into the joy of the present moment. One of the ways many people find they can reach that space is out in nature. For example it is very easy to go on a walk and charge around that walk without really noticing what we're doing, another thing to tick off the to do list! What if we take notice of what's around us? We could look at the gnarliness of the trees, listen to the bird song, become aware of the process of each step and how the weight on our feet can be like a rolling forward motion. That experience has just become much more beautiful, peaceful and settling. This is the energy of mindfulness.

 

Mindfulness is also about promoting attitudes such as compassion, being non judgemental, accepting and gratitude. Sometimes we seem to forget that we are biological systems/animals not machines and our bodies need to be taken care of. Kindness can be so powerful. When we are dealing with difficulties it's easy to push away our feelings emotional or physical within mindfulness we can learn a way of holding ourselves that is much more comfortable and supportive of recovery.

 

This 'way of being' can bring relief in many areas of our lives, including relationships, pain, illness, sleep, anxiety and stress and this has been very well shown in research by teams such as those led by Jon Kabat Zinn and Mark Williams.
