1. Mindfulness helps us learn to recognize how we are feeling, and not react to it.
2. Which means it can help us calm down more quickly, or stay calm during tricky times.
3. It also gives our mind a little “break” when it is full of stuff, and can help us relax.
4. This mind break then gives our brain a little more “space” so that we can fill it up with things that are important.
5. Mindfulness is NOT emptying your mind of all thoughts, it’s more like letting go of the ones that we don’t need.
