Product overview

Why Is Mindfulness Important?

Although mindfulness is not automatic and does not occur spontaneously, it can be learned and practiced to be intentionally accessed when needed. Some of the characteristics of mindfulness include non-judgmental awareness, paying attention on purpose, remaining non-judgmental, staying in the present, being non-reactive, and remaining open-hearted and compassionate.

Mindfulness has many benefits that can help to reduce the stress associated with daily hassles:

  • Increased acceptance—By not making evaluations, participants can accept their thoughts and see these messages as simple mental processes rather than pure truths.
  • Greater awareness—Participants can experience expanded awareness and a clearer vision of the world and its processes.
  • Less intense reactions—Participants will be less inclined to react when experiencing the stress of daily hassles. Instead, they will develop an observer stance through which they are free from evaluation, attachment, and frustration.
  • Relaxed approach—Participants will learn to relax to better cope with worry, anxiety, and stress related to daily hassles.
  • Calm demeanor—Participants develop a state of mind in which they are mentally and physically at peace, preparing them to deal more effectively with daily worry, anxiety, and stress. They will experience greater overall well-being.
  • Mental functioning—Participants will experience greater concentration, focus, and self-awareness to promote personal and professional growth and development.
