What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is noticing what is happening right now. What are your senses and emotions telling you? What is your mind telling you?
At the Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) we see mindfulness in this way, too:
Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience (Jon Kabat Zinn).
Through the practice of mindfulness, we can learn who we are and define our own personal empowerment and self-love.
So where do you begin on your journey to mindfulness?
We have some tools that will help you get started!
The BEST Calm Mind Video Course
Life after a brain injury can be challenging.
Our thoughts are often jumbled and the littlest thing can create an unusual amount of stress. Meditation can also help control stress.
That’s why the Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) is excited to share The Calm Mind Video Course. In this online course, you’ll learn what meditation is and some simple techniques you can use.
From breathing techniques to how to sleep more soundly, this course gives you a comprehensive education on calming your mind and self-care.
And if you are a caregiver or anyone that could use some tools and support to achieve a calmer mind, this course is also for you.
This course costs $29 and can be purchased here.
Enjoy your journey to a calmer mind, brain health and overall wellness!
