Paying more attention to the present moment, to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you, can improve your mental wellbeing.
This awareness is called mindfulness and its aim is to help us enjoy life more and understand ourselves better. You can take steps to develop it for your own mental well-being.
Becoming more aware of the present moment can help us enjoy the world around us more and understand ourselves better. When we become more aware of the present moment, we begin to respect and accept things that we had taken for granted.
This lets us stand back from our thoughts and start to see their patterns. Gradually, we can train ourselves to notice when our thoughts are taking over and realise that thoughts are simply 'mental events' that do not have to control us.
Mindfulness is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as a way to prevent depression in people who have had 3 or more bouts of depression in the past. *

A great way to practice mindfulness is to listen to a life coach. Listening to a life coach can help you stay on track and feel more appreciative of the things in your life.
