Part One: Mindful FemininityWelcome to this new 4-part series on Mindful Femininity. Throughout this series, we will be looking at holistic paths to wellbeing, starting with mindfulness. A word that has been used more and more throughout the years, mindfulness is on everyone’s mind (pun intended). What is it? How can it boost your health? Let’s have a look!
Mindfulness: Beneficial for Your Physical HealthStarting with the basics, mindfulness is the art of being fully present and engaged in the moment without judgment. This can be extremely powerful as a transformative tool in your health. Physically, it helps reduce stress-related symptoms which often present themselves as insomnia, fatigue, or hormonal imbalances. To address this, consider using mindfulness, which encourages relaxation and stress reduction. For example, a deep breathing exercise can do wonders!
It Has Emotional Benefits Too!Mindfulness goes beyond the physical. Emotionally, it gives us the skills we need to navigate our emotions. As women, we are often the ones who need to keep it all together while others can emote freely – otherwise, we’re seen as overly emotional! Well, to tackle this, using mindful journaling can help. Try using guided meditation or journaling so you can do some emotional exploration and healing. Why? Because it helps you become more resilient and emotionally intelligent!
Connections and Mental HealthFinally, mindfulness has been shown to help women who deal with anxiety and depression. The practice encourages a heightened awareness of thought patterns, and a non-judgemental attitude towards yourself, which helps you break the cycle of negative thinking. Likewise, it allows you to tune into your mind and body, which is a great way to establish a deeper connection with yourself.
