Mindfulness is a word that describes many different skills and activities that improve our cognitive, spiritual and emotional experience. Mindfulness is in itself the experience we have through an activity like deep breathing, relaxation meditations and yoga. This activity is designed to stimulate the brain and bring energy and vitality back into the body as well as improving concentration and internal visualisation.
Hot Tips for Your Mindfulness Practice

- Practising a few times each day boosts the effects of this simple technique.
