What Is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness in itself has become quite the buzzword. For those unfamiliar, it might conjure images of people sitting cross-legged, meditating. In reality, it’s a way of life!
Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, instead of getting caught up in thoughts and worries from the past or in the future.
Mindfulness is something that we all naturally possess, but we need to practice it in order for it to work in our benefit. Like muscles, we must challenge our thoughts and train our brains to restructure the way we see the world around us. Once we reframe the way we think, we can actually start remodeling the physical structures of our brain.
During this Mindfulness Challenge group, it’s my goal to take you through the basics of everyday mindfulness through a series of daily challenges. From rethinking the way you eat your food, to spending time focusing on something as basic as breathing, we’ll be working through strategies for mindfulness that you can take with you throughout the rest of your life!
Meet Keri Elkin, The Facilitator of Mindfulness Challenge
I want to make it easy for everyone to live healthy by using the 5000 year old discipline of yoga as a road map.
This is a community working towards life balance through nutrition, mental wellness, and physical fitness.
I believe that many people settle for making others a priority, getting old or some other excuse that puts their health at the bottom of the list of things to do when our health and our friends & family need it to be at the top.
How Can Mindfulness Help You?
If greater mental well-being isn’t enough of an incentive, research has shown us that mindfulness can help improve physical health in a number of ways too. From lowering blood pressure to reducing chronic pain and relieving stress overall, science has found that mindfulness can offer a host of benefits to anyone and EVERYONE who practices.
These days, we’re all inundated with notifications, work emails, social media, and other distractions. If you’re guilty of spending hours each day staring at your phone, think about what you could be missing!
Each of us is only visiting this planet for a short period of time. Why miss out on living in the present moment when there are so many incredible things to engage with?
I know how difficult it can be to push aside the stress and other negative emotions, which is why I want to offer you this opportunity.
I Can’t Wait to Get Started on Tuesday, December 1st!
