Invested in your physical fitness but not doing anything for your mind? You may be missing out.
More and more people are turning to mindfulness practice to help them de-stress, re-balance, and really tackle what’s most important to them.
Since 2010, Mindspace has been the city’s leading organization for mindfulness training. Dr. Joe Flanders, along with the Mindspace team, has developed Montreal’s first mindfulness-based coaching to be offered in a health and wellness club. The goal: to train your brain to be strong, fit and resilient. Much like physical exercise, mindfulness requires practice and repetition to ultimately improve your mental fitness, and overall well-being.
Studies have shown that a regular mindfulness practice can:
- Reduce the negative impacts of stress, and the tendency to ruminate unproductively
- Improve your focus and working memory
- Help you to better manage emotional reactivity
The best part? Research has also shown that mindfulness practice can help increase the benefits of physical exercise, and that physical exercise can be a great launchpad for a rich mindfulness practice. Reserve your spot in a class to get that positive feedback loop cooking.
