Our Mind Is Our Greatest Asset and Greatest Obstacle
Meditation/mindfulness practice is fitness training for the mind, strengthening our mental muscles of attention management and emotional regulation. Maintaining mental wellbeing is like keeping your body fit or looking after your teeth.
Your mind is as important as your body or your teeth!
Our mind is involved in everything we do. It governs how we think, how we feel, how we perceive, how we experience and engage with life.
Our mind forms the basis of our character and personality, our relationships and our happiness.
Our state of mind determines the way we feel about our self and it affects our physical health all the way down to the level of our DNA and expression of our genes.
Our mind contains endless possibilities and powers, but when left unchecked it can behave like a wild animal - restless, loud, uncontrollable and not present.
Regular Meditation/Mindfulness Practice Is Shown To:
Increase self-regulation of attention allowing us to focus with less mind-wandering or distraction
Increase self-regulation of emotion enabling us stay calm under pressure
Enhance memory and retention of information
Increase effectiveness and learning
Decrease negative emotion and self-belief
Decrease bias through increased compassion and connection with self and others
