What is mindfulness?
So many of the difficulties we feel mentally and emotionally start in the mind. Mindfulness helps you to train your mind. It helps you to get a new perspective on your emotions and it gives you the tools to start living with more peace and ease.

Mindfulness is a technique you can learn which involves noticing what's happening in the present moment, without judgement. You might take notice and be aware of your mind, body or surroundings. The technique has roots in Buddhism and meditation, but you don't have to be spiritual, or have any particular beliefs, to try it.
Mindfulness aims to help you:
become more self-aware
feel calmer and less stressed
feel more able to choose how to respond to your thoughts and feelings
cope with difficult or unhelpful thoughts
be kinder towards yourself
Many people find practising mindfulness helps them manage their day-to-day wellbeing, but it doesn't always work for everyone.
