What is Mindfulness
Professor Williams says that mindfulness can be an antidote to the “tunnel vision” that can develop in our daily lives, especially when we are busy, stressed or tired.
“It’s easy to stop noticing the world around us. It’s also easy to lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling, and to end up living ‘in our heads’ – caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour.
Reminding yourself to take notice – of your thoughts, feelings and body sensations, and the world around you – is the first step to mindfulness. “Even as we go about our daily lives, we can find new ways of waking up to the world around us.
