Stress and the Mind
We all experience stress. When a situation presents itself as unpredictable, fearful, unpleasant, threatening or beyond our control, our spontaneous reaction can be either to fight or flee. Such responses, however, do not resolve the long term issue of stress.
The mind understands nothing; it doesn't get any wiser. The problem remains unresolved and shelved as unfinished business that will fascinate the mind and lie in wait to be triggered. We cannot stop thinking about it.
Nor can we stop recycling the painful past or worrying about the future. The negative thoughts give rise to negative feelings and emotions. More negative thoughts follow. The mind becomes confused and cannot see the way out.
My aim is to help you:
With regular mind taming practice, the mind will come to understand things as the way they are - thus be able to let go of negative thinking and emotions, leaving you feeling more at peace and happier.
Mindfulness practice provides a number of health benefits. For example, it has been found to help reduce physical pain, stress and anxiety, improve immunity and enhance memory function.
