How does mindfulness improve our wellbeing?

Mindfulness - coming to know how we're affected by our inner and outer experience.


Whilst we like to think of ourselves as logical people, our emotions are extremely powerful and can influence our thoughts. 

When our thoughts and emotions go unobserved we're at the mercy of our automatic reactions.  These fast reactions are crucial for keeping us safe, but an over cautious mind can leave us feeling on edge when there is no real danger.

Mindfulness based self awareness is a way of observing our experience without self judgement, so we are able to notice these patterns and become less driven or consumed by them.  We learn to get less caught up in this inner world experiencing  less stress or worry, improved sleep patterns and a stronger immune system. 

We achieve this through practice, knowledge and personal insight and we begin to understand what fulfills us and what takes us off track. We gain greater emotional control and can shape our lives in a more purposeful way. 

This changes the dynamics of our inner experience and contributes to our overall sense of well being.  We begin to experience more happiness in our lives and this brings benefits to ourselves and those we are closest to.

What is Mindfulness 

Mindfulness has been practiced within Eastern cultures for thousands of years and is becoming more popular in the West as scientific proof of its benefits emerge in the field of neuroscience. 

Mindfulness is a way of being present that allows us to build awareness of our experience as it happens and in doing so begin to build a self knowledge that ultimately empowers us to get in touch with a more authentic sense of self. 

It can begin to free us from the influences of stress and patterns of behaviour that do not serve us.

It's a powerful and unique experience that allows us to progress at our own pace, because we are all experts on ourselves and can all uncover this skill that already lies within us.

More Details

Why mindfulness?   

Mindfulness has been a feature of Eastern culture for thousands of years.  We are all born with the capacity to be mindful but somewhere along the way our busy minds take over.

Mindfulness is a gentle way of approaching our experience which unfolds uniquely for each of us. It allows us to start where we are, and go at our own pace simply working with the edges.

Typical benefits

  • Learning to take time out can have an immediate impact on our well being and sleep patterns.
  • Becoming more self aware can help us to balance our emotions and experience more happiness in our lives.
  • Getting less caught up in stress impacts our immune system, our well being and can even influence our sleep patterns.
  • Working in a safe and supported environment helps us to turn towards our difficulties and develop a sense of compassion around all experiences.  This brings great benefits to ourselves but also those we interact with.  
  • Learning with others demonstrates our shared experiences  and we feel less isolated. 
  • Mindfulness practice can rewire the connections between the threat system and the executive function giving us greater control over our reactions.

"Excellent course that challenges notions of what mindfulness is, while providing real tools to manage stress, worry and emotions. Mindfulness really is Skills for Life.

Julie is a wonderful teacher: knowledgeable and open about her own journey. She facilitates a warm and friendly atmosphere and is encouraging around all experiences."


Jan, Wallasey

"I really enjoyed the course I recently embarked on, Julie is a great teacher and made us all feel welcome in the group. I was a bit worried about learning via zoom but Julie led the sessions really well with her extensive knowledge of the subject."

Alison, Greasby

"I gained a deeper understanding of mindfulness with the ability to continue my practice going forward. I would highly recommend Just Breathe Solutions if you are interested in learning more about mindfulness."

Su, Bebington

"I would definitely recommend participating in Julie's (Just Breathe) Mindfulness 9 week course.  Julie provided a safe space for discussion, professionally lead and overall an enjoyable experience."

Jayne, Aintree

"I can't rate this course highly enough!
I joined at a time when I was struggling with anxiety. Julie's voice is so calming, she taught me a lot about how the mind works, it was really interesting and a lot of what she said really resonated with me. I now feel as though I have 'tools' that I can use to calm my mind going forward and will definitely continue using the app."

Angela, Aintree

"I found the mindfulness course really helpful in many ways. It has become an anchor in my day, something I look forward to. Although I was unable to attend all of the sessions, the App is really good. I can go back and practice different aspects of mindfulness, or choose what I feel I need on any certain day. Julie’s delivery was gentle and supportive. I was made to feel at ease by Julie and the other participants, who really were a beautiful group of humans! ❤️"

Meet your instructor

Mindfulness has changed my life in so many ways.  It's helped me to work with stress, deal with narcissism and to live each day in colour. 

What I love about this course is the information it provides around how our mind and body works.  These little insights really encourage us to take a step back and reflect on our inner world.

The language of the guidance also delivers a sense of safety and curiousity.

I work better with small groups and believe this creates space to talk and learn from each other without the awkwardness that might arise in larger gatherings.
