Anyone can practice mindfulness, but at the same time, therapy based versions may not be for everyone. BeMindful.co.uk say like any treatment or therapeutic technique, the impact is not universal and the benefits can vary from person to person. But, it could be particularly useful for people suffering from mental health issues or anxiety.
That said, mindfulness practices and techniques can vary in intensity from practising for a few minutes a day and making it part of a daily routine to participating in more extended and formal therapy sessions. Now becoming a mainstream activity and being encouraged in the workplace, companies like Google and Apple include meditation time to the working day. So really, anyone can benefit from introducing mindfulness techniques to their lives. Given the benefits are becoming more widely recognised, there are now campaigns for mindfulness to be launched in schools.
Taking time out to practice mindfulness may be the most significant barrier for many people as life is so busy and day to day tasks and demands can take a toll on our free time. However, many people report greater contentment and wellbeing when introducing mindfulness successfully in their lives.
