Mindfulness is cultivating non-judgemental moment to moment awareness applied to our perceptions of life. Our environment is full of stressors and some present in the form of pain or illness.
Mindfulness training educates us to view our environment in a way that reduces our exposure to stress, pain and illness and allows our minds and bodies to maintain balance and healthy emotional intelligence. If Stress is a big issue for you then my mindfulness stress reduction program that could suit your needs.
As is the focus of our clinic we focus on ways that our environment gets into our body creating the physical illness.
There are 4 main pathways that environmental stress gets into our body:
- One through the central nervous system,
- another through the endocrine system,
- one through the blood system, and
- the last based on genetic predisposition to illness.
In my Mindfulness Training Program I teach you how to structure your environment to make it work for you. Then we work on your perceptions, anticipations and interpretations of your environment to reduce to the stress that is ailing you.
The main approach is cultivating specific attitudes to change your patterns that currently lead to stress, anxiety and illness.
As part of the program I give you focused concentration practices to maintain a healthy balance of stress chemicals and tools to better handle any environmental and emotional stress that come up in the future.
We are very limited in how much we can change our environment though we have a lot more control over how we respond to it.
