Does your mind feel like a time-share sometimes? Like it’s everybody else’s property?
Modern living dumps so much on us, every day. Whether it’s work, people, Phones, TV adverts or the internet. All taking a slice out of you.
And if it isn’t ‘Life-stuff’ on the outside, it’s ‘My-stuff’ on the inside. We get wrapped up in our heads with Memories, Fears, and stresses, often leading to depression, anxiety and physical illness.
You need to a way to stop this. To get back to the present. The place where you actually live. A calmer, reflective place where you can breathe, physically and mentally.
It’s easier than you think. To engage with every minute of your life. Fully present, experiencing and responding with authenticity. Being part of every minute of every day, no matter how mundane or magnificent, how difficult or delightful.
That’s what Mindful Awareness is about.
Using Mindful Awareness as you go about your day is simple. Just move your attention away from your thoughts and on to a bodily sensation. Don’t analyse or judge. Just notice. Be curious, interested. And stay with your senses.
Notice the smell of fresh milk. Can you smell the cream? The fat? How sweet does it smell?
What does chocolate really taste like to you? What does it smell like? How does it feel when it melts on your fingers? Grainy? Smooth? Try this with different types.
What about the fabric of your jeans or the buttons on your coat?
Find something you work with every day. A pen, perhaps, or stapler. How does your perception of it change when you examine it mindfully?
As you get more practiced at this you will find it easier to bring it into your everyday living and start be-ing in your environment.
Right Here. Right Now.
