Mindfulness is one of those buzz words…
… that people throw around these days and we absolutely love it! Because it is very much a huge part of creating more Bliss in your life.
We’ve found an amazing mindset and self care coach on the internet, Catherine Beard, and we LOVE what she has to say…
What Mindfulness Is
The official definition:
Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment.
What that really means:
Mindfulness is a state of being when your body and mind are in the same place at the same time. That means bringing attention to what you are doing and where you are, without worrying about the future or the past.
Think of it like you’re sitting at your desk and eating a granola bar and all of a sudden you’re aware that you’re sitting at your desk and eating a granola bar. You’re not worried about what you’re going to eat for dinner or thinking about how you embarrassed yourself earlier this morning. You’re just in that moment, as it happens.
What that looks like in daily life:
Most of us spend our days half-aware of what we’re doing and what we’re thinking. We live on autopilot and go through our routines without noticing what we’re doing unless our routine is thrown off.
Mindfulness develops by noticing mindlessness and using this awareness to be more intentional with your actions. If you can bring more intention to your routines and take time to schedule in mindfulness practices, you can begin to reap the benefits of mindfulness.

One of the key benefits of coming to Bliss Sanctuary For Women is that so many women take that special time out for themselves to clear their mind, honour their body and nurture their soul and then after 7 days of doing only this, they leave with a blissful mind. But you don’t need to go to a yoga retreat or health retreat to achieve this in your everyday life. Imagine if we focussed on ourselves for 10 minutes a day, the positive impact this can have.
To me World Mental Health Day (October 10th) is very much about creating a blissful mind set to really authentically look after our mental health.
It is the ultimate expression of self love.
I hope these tips encourage you to put yourself first even if only for 10 minutes a day and love and cherish yourself the way you deserve.

We wanted to share our Bliss experience as far as it can go and so we created Bliss News. Even if you can’t go on a beautiful personalised Women’s Retreat right now, we hope you can take the time to add a bit more bliss to your life in whatever way you choose. Self love comes in all different shapes and sizes but the one thing it has in common is that it starts with you. We hope some of our ideas and laughs and wellness retreat additions are something you can incorporate into your everyday life... love Zoë xxx
