The word Mindwellness is my way to play with the word Mindfulness.
I believe as we most of the time have a very full mind, it is important that it also is well.
Not to be mistaken by the method of Mindfulness, which puts emphasis on being mindful, rather than having your mind full.
I include Mindfulness in my methods of coaching as a complimentary tool for stress management and stress relief.
There is common ground between the Self-Worth Safari method of Self-Awareness, Acceptance & Appreciation and Mindfulness which also base its practice on consciousness, awareness, acceptance and compassion of self.
The word Mindfulness indicates mind presence or conscious presence. Mindfulness is a method that can be used to deal with stress and anxiety. Our minds are largely focused on what is negative and threatening. It is part of our survival instinct but can of course also make our lives less comfortable. New research shows that training in mindfulness and compassion changes this and contributes to reduced focus on negative aspects of life and gives positive effects against stress and fatigue symptoms. It has also been shown that mindfulness is as effective as individual cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for patients with depression and anxiety.
Mindfulness is an approach that develops attention, awareness and compassion. Being mindful is about being fully aware of what is happening in the present without judgement. Mindfulness exercises focus on being present in the here and now and can be done through meditation, breathing exercises, light yoga or body scanning to name a few. With mindfulness exercises, you learn tools in stress relief, to become more attentive and focus on what is essential not only in the present moment but in life at large. You thereby make wiser choices and cope better with pressure in your personal and professional life. The focus in mindfulness is on awareness, acceptance and compassion for oneself, which I base much of my coaching on.
