Mindfulness: what is it all about?
Have you ever given much thought to your day to day activities?
We can be ultra hard on ourselves with what we achieve in a day and really undervalue what we do
Which can leave us feeling like we are always chasing our tails….
And always chasing goals that seem to evade us!
In reality, life is hard
Time does seem to accelerate when you are busy
And if you don’t know how to slow things down, and take stock of your day….
You may feel like you are never getting anywhere whilst the world speeds on around you
Mindfulness is a new HOT TOPIC in the health and fitness industry
And like all things that seem to come and go
I think it will enjoy its day in the limelight, and then MOST people will go back to their old ways
This will be a travesty….because of ALL of the fads that I’ve seen come and go…
This is a BUZZ WORD that actually carries with it an importance and a relevance to EVERYONE
Rarely can it be said that an approach can suit or benefit every single person
I regularly slam approaches that don’t consider what the individual needs (because I do believe that a bespoke approach is needed when our lives have so many nuances)
But this is something that EVERYONE will benefit from
- Being able to slow things down and BE IN THE MOMENT
- Being able to recognise when you need to take a short break from what you are doing
- Being able to pick apart and recognise your feelings
- Being able to control how you choose to respond in stressful situations
- Being less REACTIVE and more PROACTIVE
All of these are things that EVERYONE could be better at!
It would allow you to live your life feeling more in control
You would have less drive to self-sabotage
You would be more present and able to see the truth of a situation (something that often gets lost in the raw
emotion of things!)
And you would be able to accept and love what is, not what wasn’t, or what could have been…
This acceptance of the reality, and living in the moment is what I strive for
I am not always successful, and it’s an ongoing process for me to learn and discover how I respond to different things
BUT my daily practice of MINDFULNESS helps me to be more aware and more able to make the choices that I want to make
Not the choices that I get driven toward in frustration, anger or irritation.
