Mindfulness isn’t really meditation as we think of it. Mindfulness doesn’t make the mad, bad and sad stuff go away. It doesn’t protect us from things going wrong. Mindfulness is simply a way we can calm the chaos both within us and reflected in our lives, so that we can live exceptional, exciting and extraordinary lives in spite of the challenges and obstacles we have to face. It is an effective way to relieve stress, improve attention and performance, enhance creativity, energise, identify and manage our extreme emotions, improve thinking skills, clear our heads… it is simply an enjoyable, useful and effective addition to anyone’s life. Mindfulness uses only the tools already available to us through our senses and thoughts – so it doesn’t cost anything, and you can do it on your own or with others, it doesn’t take long, and you can do it anywhere and everywhere. Mindfulness is self-awareness.
You don't have to be Buddha or an enlightened floating unicorn to practice mindfulness. You can do exactly what you would normally do, and just do it with an open mind, an open heart and with awareness and intention.
Love and light,
