Mindfulness is not just about relaxing. It’s a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings. You learn and adapt to noticing the world around you without judgment.
It’s also referred to when establishing a healthy diet or exercise routine. On that note, it is important when practicing yoga and meditation.
The key in today’s world is to bring mindfulness into our digital era. Parenting can be challenging and bringing mindfulness into the mix will help teach our children better social skills. It can help to prevent anxiety, anger, and negativity that social media releases.
Screen time also affects our sleep patterns and our day to day performance at school and work. Mindfulness can help us on the path to putting down the screens.
