Ten Minute Mindfulness Practice

February 15, 2017

Mindful Awareness

When you become more aware, you can simply observe your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations without the need to react to them.  Mindful awareness can help you see patterns in your behavior and figure out how to break unhealthy habits and form new ones by choice.  As you practice becoming more mindful, you may find it is easier to feel stress without reacting in a harmful way.  Studies have shown that people who trained in mindful awareness have an easier time understanding and coping with stressful situations such as:

  • quitting smoking;
  • decreasing binge eating;
  • reducing illegal drug use.
