Mindfulness, awareness on the present moment, can often feel like an elusive goal as our mind races from one distraction to another, from one goal to another. It seems like it’s always out of reach, only available to the enlightened. But its true nature is quite different.
It is not only within our reach but so close to us that consciously practicing it for only a few minutes every day can drastically improve our attention, awareness, and thus our quality of life.
Start practicing mindfulness daily. You’ll be more in touch with your feelings and thoughts, you’ll be more productive, happier, and you’ll live a more fulfilled life.
Practicing mindfulness isn’t just for the Zen Buddhists, sitting in lotus flower positions on the tops of snow-capped mountains. In fact, you can practice numerous mindfulness techniques in a single day.
Practicing mindfulness alters our brains and how we engage with ourselves, others, and our work.
The idea of being mindful — being present, being more conscious of life as it happens — seems a bit impossible to many of the super busy. But not only is it possible, it’s desirable, and it’ll help the busy (and non-busy) achieve their goals and enjoy life more fully.
Start taking a few moments out of your day to practice mindfulness now, and you’ll feel more present and enjoy the rewards for years to come.
Until Next Week
Being mindful will not only help you enjoy your life more, it will help you achieve your goals more easily and more quickly, but most importantly, it will help you find your inner peace and happiness.
