Meditation is an intentional practice, where you focus inward to increase calmness, concentration, and emotional balance.
Meditation usually begins with deep breathing in a comfortable position, bringing all your awareness to your breath—inhaling and exhaling—consciously guiding the mind towards an anchor, or a single point of focus.
At Women's Health Hub we incorporate breathing techniques and meditation into our health coaching and reflexology practice. We realise how important it can be to help
de-stress the mind and body.
Mindfulness is all about being aware, which of course includes the practice of meditation. When you are being actively mindful, you are noticing and paying attention to your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and movements, and also to the effects you have on those around you. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment. That might be something as simple as the feel of a banister as we walk upstairs.
You can practice mindfulness anytime, anywhere, and with anyone by showing up and being fully engaged in the here and now.
Mindfulness is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as a way to prevent depression in people who have had 3 or more bouts of depression in the past.
