Mindfulness, what is that? Is it what the word states? To be mindful? To me, it is a rather new word in that sense that it is becoming more and more popular and in focus. We do live in a very opposite world with rather strange focus sometimes. Of course this can and is down to your life and focus as well. Am I making any sense here? For example, on the one hand we can now be connected to work, family and friends 24/7- on the other hand we talk more and more about stress? How do we manage that- how do you manage that? I’m guilty of not being able to switch of so easily. But I really think it is more and more important for your health- in particular for your mind. How do you stop your mind from being so active? As with other parts of your body, you really need to let your mind rest. It’s very important. Your mind is what defines you and so much more.
Benefits of mindfulness I can’t help but think it’s a bit ironic to have to practice your brain, you, to focus on the present. I admit it’s a challenge for me. There are so many benefits to it though from improving your health, reducing stress, improve sleep and most of all… to feel good and to be you. In this article you’ll also find some good exercises to practice: a lot of focus on your breathing and also to learn how to accept and not to judge. Just to observe. This week, for me, for my health and for my benefit I will give mindfulness focus in my life. I will try this Mindfulness App if it is any good and give you a review of it at the end of this week. Will you join me? In discovering, or if you already practice or live this way, to share the benefits of this here? Life can be very black and white sometimes but it’s also filled with so much in between. A philosophical post from me, but it is so important to enjoy what we have here and now and… to look after yourself! I so… recommend!
