Too often, life zips by. There's no time to experience what's happening now because you're busy thinking about what needs doing tomorrow or didn't happen yesterday. Your mind is tattle with commentary or judgment.
Thinking is essential to your life and it is not the enemy. Your mind is able to think back and reflect on the past as well your mind can think about the future. It can plan ahead and look forward to forthcoming events.
This ability is not always a blessing. Because sometimes you can get stuck in the past, you can also be paralysed by worries and anxiety about the future.
Mindfulness is a way to have a more helpful relationship with this thinking, to recognize when your thoughts are being unhelpful dragged back to the past or catapulted into the been and where you are going.
How can mindfulness be helpful in your everyday life?
We live in a stressful world, dealing with a flood of information, interruption and distraction, managing a job, a home and the variety of demands as you try to meet everyone's needs and your own communities. thinking about please what needs doing and what you didn't do, getting frustrated, stressed and anxious.
Unfortunately, a good part of our time passes that way for most of us. It is easy to stop noticing what's really going on within you and around you and to end up living in your head, caught up in your thoughts without being aware of how those thoughts are controlling what you feel and do.
Mindfulness enables you to experiences and appreciates your life instead of rushing through it, constantly trying to be somewhere else. Mindfulness is simply a shift in your awareness of your life, your routines and habits, work and relationships so you can live in more balance.
