MINDFULNESS

IN THE DIGITAL AGE 

We live on a speed train that constantly challenges us to our core. A digitally driven, 24/7, always-on, always connected reality that leaves us with sensory overload, constant distraction and no time to think. 

The reality is that our brains are not designed to constantly drink from this firehose of information. So, in a bid to survive, we try to multi-task our way through. The net effect is that we  are loosing the ability to focus, the key ingredient in executing anything successfully .   
 

To counter this we need to retrain our brains. Train them to focus. To pay attention. To be aware of and to manage distractions. Mindfulness is the tool to do just that.

Below are some common questions answered about mindfulness. What it is, what it is not, and most importantly what neuroscience shows us about how it works. 

MINDFULNESS - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?

Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention, non judgementally in the present moment. 

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN LEARNING MINDFULNESS?

Mindfulness programs involve 3 elements - Developing a daily mindfulness practice, learning and applying mental strategies and finally specific techniques to improve effectiveness, productivity & well being. 

WHAT IF I HAVE TRIED BEFORE AND FAILED?

Many people have tried to learn mindfulness techniques but find themselves either unable to master the practice of keep up their daily practice. Our programs are designed specifically for those who have busy, challenging lives and for who time is at a premium. Over 150,000 people across the world have learned mindfulness using this simple methodology. 

HOW DOES IT ACTUALLY WORK?

Mindfulness is simply the practice of learning to first observe and secondly manage our thoughts. Given the noisy , busy world we live in we have been conditioned to be driven by the constant mind chatter that goes on in our heads. Neuroscientists have shown that we have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day! 

Mindfulness gives us the tools to step back, to learn to be comfortable with stillness, which in turn gives us a greater ability to be more aware and present.
