What is Mindfulness?

What is Mindfulness?

 

Life can be overwhelming at times, and sometimes factors can influence the brain to send off particular signals. These signals can create a slew of chemicals that may overwhelming your brain--causing not-so-pleasant emotions.  

Mindfulness is a practice in which a person learns to spot, identify, manage, and perhaps eventually mitigate certain emotions. While mindfulness will unlikely completely remove these "overwhelming" feelings, with practice, they may become more acceptable and easier to control.
