When faced with adverse or unfamiliar circumstances, our body’s natural reaction is to become anxious and negative. Our brains have a habit of re-living past stresses and worrying about future problems, which can become an obstacle to our mental health. Emails, meetings, questions, texts, phone calls, and projects are all stress-inducing stimuli.
Mindfulness is used as a way to master your thoughts and feelings rather than be controlled by them. By freeing yourself from stress you can achieve a clear mind. Being able to control our automatic reaction to fear and anxiousness helps us to overcome obstacles and problems in our daily lives. Ultimately, this leads to better decisiveness and success.
