Title : Mindfulness in nursing
Mindfulness in nursing involves teaching ourselves and our clients to take a few moments to be still and check in with their body and mind and simply allowing any waves of thought, emotion, or physical sensation to just be. There is no need to judge, analyze or figure things out. Just allow yourself to be present, amidst everything that is in this moment. Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, to whatever arises or manifests without judgement. Mindfulness is simply observing, watching, examining you are not a judge but a scientist. Simply put, Mindfulness consist of cultivating awareness of the mind and body and living in the here and now. By adding mindfulness to traditional western medicine, we are allowing ourselves to tap into our inner pharmacy, to be open to the dynamic play between eastern and western medicine. By investing in Mindfulness, we can engage in healing and wholeness on a personal, as well as professional, level. By sharing this with our patients, we can assist them in connecting with their inner healing, and self restoration.
