Hey there, I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend and that you’re entirely ready to embark on what the new week has installed for you. The topic of today’s blog post is mindfulness
Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present in the moment that is going on right now. Without thinking about the past, the future, or other things going on in your life.
Practicing mindfulness helps us focus on what we are doing right now, and concentrating on what you are doing right now, has two beautiful effects.
1. It helps you become more successful at whatever it is you are doing.
By shifting those negative thoughts to positive ones, you are teaching your mind to merely manage how you feel about certain circumstances more effectively and efficiently. You become entirely focus without any distractions whatsoever, and in return, more productive in every aspect of your life. Once we’ve come to terms that the only thing we can change is ourselves, not the past or future or anyone else for that matter. And to realize that the only thing that is worth our effort is to be in control of our minds.
2. Mindfulness gives your mind a break from those worry thoughts and concerns.
Isn’t it great to know that we can take a break from worrying and being sad about our situations from time to time? That’s one of the things that mindfulness does. It allows us to give our minds that rest it deserves by helping us focus on the present moment instead of what happened in the past, or what the future looks like for us. It takes away those uncertainties that life throws typically at us and gives us peace and maximum mind relaxation.
And with that said, I like you to take a few deep breaths so that if someone is near you, they could hear you breathing. And if you find that your mind has wandered off, just gently bring it back to your breaths.
Do this for 5-10 mins whenever you have time, and you would begin to notice changes with your mind. As we all know, the mind is a powerful thing.
