We’ve been sold the idea it can cure everything from stress to depression, overeating to poor sleep. But is mindfulness the magic bullet it seems? And is it good to be so introspective?



Is being alone with your thoughts all it’s cracked up to be?

What began as a form of meditation linked to Eastern spirituality back in the 1960s, has evolved into the go-to practice to help you take control of your life and wellbeing. A meditative technique where you focus on the moment, accepting thoughts, feelings and sensations without judgement, mindfulness is easy, free and has been welcomed by professionals – even the NHS advocates its use.

We’ve welcomed it so wholeheartedly into our collective wellbeing bosom that currently, you can browse around 1300 mindfulness apps, with Headspace (estimated value: £196 million from a staggering 11 million downloads) topping the Photographs Getty charts. Offline, we’re spoilt with just shy of 25,000 books from colouring-in (worth £20.3 million in 2015 alone) to Ruby Wax’s take on its role in dealing with depression with A Mindfulness Guid or The razzled (Penguin Life, £8.99). Pack a bag, and a raft of retreats will let you combine it with yoga, cookery, singing, walking, even boxing. It’s a booming industry.
