I always find it amazing how the simplest things have become complicated in modern society. Ever present demands from work, home life and notifications from social media and news connect and distract us like never before. Some days, even the best of us struggle to be present and involved in what is going on around us. It is these days where mindfulness training can help us focus, perform and excel. Something as simple as consciously controlling breathing can make a world of difference to someone’s mental state.
