Constant thinking causes stress

Most of us spend our days thinking – analysing problems at work, deciding what to make for dinner and adding things to our mental to-do lists. These are things we need to do, but thinking too much can consume a lot of our mental energy and be a source of chronic stress and anxiety. Stress in turn, can manifest in the body as headaches, back pain, trouble sleeping, and can lead to skin issues and unhealthy behaviours such as emotional eating, smoking and excessive alcohol intake.

So how should we deal with stress?

We all have our different ways of winding down, some healthier than others (ahem). But one method that is loved by experts and health professionals everywhere is mindfulness. Mindfulness is when you consciously focus all your attention on what is happening in the moment by just being and experiencing, rather than thinking or doing, and accepting your experience without judgement.
