Mindfulness is being aware of what is happening to you, and how you are reacting within yourself to what is happening, at every given moment of experience. Mindfulness can be anytime anywhere: when you are at the office, at the shopping mall, with friends or at home.
At gloWithin, we encourage the practice of mindfulness in a relaxed and open manner. Be mindful with a curious mind, being kind to whatever that comes along. Mindfulness allows you to re-discover the richness in your moment-to-moment experience, and fully engage with life.
Mindfulness offers an alternative to effectively respond to the difficulties in life. Mindfulness, backed by robust scientific research offers us potential and benefits to:
- Enhance well-being and happiness
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Strengthen attention and focus
- Improve mental health
- Foster better relationships
- Develop resilience to face challenges
Many of us struggle with stress, anger, anxiety, sadness, loneliness and regret. We perpetually struggle to maintain the little happiness that we have. Deep down, we know something is not quite right. We cope by distracting ourselves, suppressing unwanted emotions or numbing ourselves to them. Our problems go away for a while, but they end up coming back again. With diligent mindfulness cultivation, you can experience greater peace and freedom in the face of the turbulence in life.

Slowly but surely, as you patiently practice, it becomes easier, until Voila — one day, mindfulness will become fully integrated into your life.
