Mindfulness Goes Mainstream

Hello Fellow health Seekers:

Webster’s defines mindfulness as the practice of maintaining an non-judgemental state, an awareness of one’s thoughts or emotions on a moment to moment basis.It’s roots are in Buddhists teachings of awareness, acceptance, compassion and tolerance. It was first introduced to the US 30 years ago where research began initially in hospitals and then moved on to prisons and work with veterans. It has gained popularity in the last few years and is now taught in schools and in boardrooms.

Our society focuses either on the past or on the future. Mindfulness teaches you to be present now. (It has been shown to change the structure of the brain). The practice teaches you to incorporate mindfulness into the everyday things you do daily from driving to making meals to shopping. It is a way of being!It improves your concentration, levels of compassion, life satisfaction and decision-making.If the concept of mindfulness is new to you, I urge you to do some research online and enrol in a MSBR program.(Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction).www.soundstrue.com offers some great programs.

Using the old slogan from Casinos, the meaning holds true in Mindfulness…

YOU HAVE TO BE PRESENT TO WIN!
