“Mindfulness clears the windshield of the mind so that we can see things as they really are.” — Travis Eliot
Living in the now comes with a wide array of positive benefits. Mindfulness has been linked to everything from reduced anxiety to a better quality of sleep, improved digestion, and even enhanced brain function. As beneficial as mindfulness is, tuning in to your surroundings, surrendering to the moment, and embracing whatever thoughts pop up isn’t always as easy as it sounds. It takes effort—but with continued practice, mindfulness can make a big difference in your day-to-day life.
This is exactly what the workshop, Mindfulness for Holistic Development, on Saturday, 11th December 2021, at Edify School, Kanakapura Road, was all about. The Resource Person, Ms. C N Ramya, Director of Mind Talk, explained through simple words and activities, to the students of Grades 8 & 9, why we should practice mindfulness and resilience and not always linger in the past and the future.
