Mindfulness helps us pay more attention to what is going on in the present moment, becoming more familiar with our internal thoughts, emotions and the external landscape of our daily lives. Research shows that practising mindfulness can greatly reduce stress, help us handle difficult emotions and deal more skillfully with challenge and difficulty. Many people also report enhanced feelings of contentment and joy.

Mindfulness can be learned and practised by anyone. One of the best ways to get started is to enrol on an 8-week course such as those offered by Louise Martin. Louise’s next 8-week course commences on Thursday 25 January 7-9pm at a warm and welcoming location in Aberdeen’s West End. For further details, contact louise.martin@ihs-uk.net
