Having Mindfulness sessions can make you more aware of your thoughts, feelings and sensations. Using mindfulness you learn how to suspend judgement and self-criticism. Sessions show ways of paying attention with a clear mind to what's happening in our lives. Mindfulness can't eliminate life's pressures, but helps to approach them in a different way, leading to many benefits with our heart, body and mind.
