Advice on working from home
 

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is simply about being mindful of what you are thinking and deciding where you choose to focus your attention. Ideally, one would choose to focus his or her attention towards hopefulness and happiness with one’s self. Mindfulness is about deciding to look on the bright side and deciding to be kind to yourself and others.

 The benefits of mindfulness:

  • Better levels of concentration
  • Increased compassion
  • An understanding of our emotional intelligence
  • Improved sleep
  • More regular appetite
  • Can help boost our immune system
