Mindfulness is “the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally”-
Mindfulness involves both formal & informal practice. The formal practice requires giving yourself the gift of approximately 30 minutes each day to do some form of meditation. Initial meditation practice will last 5 minutes which will guide you gently into the art of Mindfulness.
However this leaves another twenty three and a half hours in the day and this is where the informal Mindfulness occurs as you draw on all your senses to integrate Mindfulness into your everyday life.
You are not your thoughts or opinions, your likes or dislikes. Once you are aware of them you no longer have to be imprisoned by them.
We all have the ability to change our brains and therefore our lives for the better.
