Life in Johannesburg can often be fast paced and demanding. If you are looking for a space to unwind from everyday stress, then the mindfulness groups at Health on Hillcrest are something you should try out. As a reprieve from the chaos of everyday life, mindfulness practice provides a space to return to ourselves, our bodies and find a state of stillness and calm.
Mindfulness is a practice which brings us back to the present moment through the art of paying attention. It is easy to get caught up in a state of doing, and mindfulness is a return to a state of being.
Dan Harris describes mindfulness practice as a superpower due to numerous studies showing its efficacy and health benefits. Mindfulness can be helpful to reduce stress, manage anxiety, decrease impulsivity, increase self-awareness and promote emotional health.
