Be Mindful

Mindfulness is a practice that brings a variety of physical, social, and psychological benefits. It is the practice that allows us to bring attention to what is happening in the present moment rather than dwelling on the past or anticipating the future. Training your brain to be mindful has been said to increase the matter in brain regions linked to learning, memory, and emotion regulation. It also improves memory, attention skills, and helps us tune out distractions. Meditating and mindful breathing are two of the best steps on can take in incorporating mindfulness practices in daily lives. Connect with a physician at the Diana Baldwin Mental Health Clinic to discuss more benefits of mindfulness, located at 1211 Chestnut St. Suite 605 .
