Mindfulness is an approach that can benefit both mind and body. It allows you to look at your situation – whatever it may be – from a more objective point of view, without judging yourself.
Instead of judging yourself, you can start to look objectively at how far you’ve come. You can renew your intention and pat yourself on the back for choosing to live healthier. Once we do this, we can talk about what steps to take to live a healthier life, both mentally and physically.
You don’t have to meditate for an hour to practice mindfulness. You can practice mindfulness in simple ways throughout your day by choosing to be fully present in your daily activities. Living in the present moment can help reduce anxiety and alleviate stress. It naturally puts your body on a better path to health.
When thinking about any physical challenges, mindfulness allows you to separate yourself from whatever chronic condition you may have and look at yourself as a whole person. By looking at what’s happening in your body as a complex series of interactions between your mind and your body, you can learn to use your mind to change your perception of the challenges you face.
