A very simple definition of mindfulness is; to focus only on the present moment in whatever you are doing. Focus on your thoughts, your feelings and your senses, be present, be aware, be accepting.
How hard can this be?
In today’s mostly fast paced, technology driven, results oriented existence with our focus on multitasking, can we make space for mindfulness?
Yes of course we can, life is about options and therefore choice. Choosing to make time for finding ways to reduce stress and live a more balanced life is surely worth a go.
Mindfulness can be helpful in allowing you to feel calmer, less stressed, more connected and more at peace with yourself and the world around you.
Is it for everyone? No, if you are struggling with mental health issues or feeling particularly vulnerable you should consult your GP or a specialist.
Depending on what floats your boat, what you want in your life and what you are willing to try in order to create a more calming, focused existence for yourself, mindfulness is a remarkable space and place to carve out for yourself.
I'm older and wiser than I look. After many years in the corporate world I decided to branch out on my own…brave eh? My tenacity, resilience and wonderful sense of fulfilment from what I do keeps me doing.
