Although the holidays are full of joy and excitement, sometimes they are overwhelming between buying last-minute presents, figuring out the Christmas menu and finding a budget-friendly way to spend New Year’s Eve. It’s important to remember that we need a break and focus on balancing our energy. So this year, Docisty has thought of a special gift for you: a unique and free guide on Mindfulness practices.
Whether you need a break from your academic year or the unexpected daily events, you deserve some good me time and well-deserved relaxation.
The guide will take you through the origins of the millennial practice, which was introduced in Western society only in the second half of the 20th century. It will then highlight the definition and uses of Mindfulness and conclude with a few case studies and exercises by expert psychologist Lissy Szwarcberg.
Learn to enjoy every moment
We hope the guide will be a valuable tool for those who suffer from stress, insecurities or anxieties in times of need, such as: during exam periods, when getting lower grades, struggling to finish assignments, careers are on standby or lack of motivation. Developing a positive outlook on life will help push out the negative thoughts that influence our daily and social behaviours.
Obstacles, failure and unforeseen negativity, will always exist, but how we deal with them makes the difference. In the 1970s, American biologist John Kabat-Zinn popularized Buddhist meditation practices and re-introduced them in Western society as what we know today as Mindfulness. Many use these practices differently to improve their well-being and personal growth because “the worst enemy you can meet will always be yourself” as Nietzsche wrote in Thus Spoke Zarathustra.
So changing your point of view and personal approach towards your surroundings is crucial for your psychophysical well-being.
If you need help figuring out where to start, this guide is the perfect starting point to introduce you to these practices you can use in every aspect of your life.
