The benefits of Mindfulness
Why is it useful to train in Mindfulness whether you work in psychotherapy or in any other profession linked to intervention or in groups, such as education or business? Let’s see what Mindfulness brings.
1. Improved anxiety management
This is one of the main objectives of Mindfulness: to influence people’s ability to modulate the power that stress has on their bodies.
2. Focus on what really matters
Mindfulness is fundamentally attentional focus management. Therefore, it helps to focus on the present and not give too much prominence to problems that only exist in our minds.
3. Helps regulate emotions
As a consequence of the above, Mindfulness is a great help to get emotions to work in our favor, and not against us.
