What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is about freeing yourself from self-judgement. It enables you to RESPOND rather than REACT in certain situations.
You don’t have to sit a certain way or remember any particular mantra. It is simply about accepting yourself as you are in the present moment, and observing the thoughts that arise as you sit, lie or stand in stillness, letting them pass without judgment. Spending just 5 or 10 minutes per day practicing mindfulness is all that you need to see its effects.
How do we use mindfulness in Train Body Brain?
At the end of class, we cool down with a mindful meditation. You are encouraged to focus on the anchor of your breath, drawing attention to your inhale and exhale. This is about non-judgement, self-love and inner peace.
TBB's mission is to provide young adults with an effective toolkit for nourishing their bodies, brains and spirits, both now and in the future. Meditation is our tool of choice to help empower them to rewrite their own mental health statistics!
