Where Are You With Your Thoughts?
The art of practicing mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism and has been around for thousands of years. Not only was it practiced to enhance spiritual connectivity, but also to bring calmness, focus, and improve the brain’s ability to think.
If you stop for a moment and look around you, you can see that many people are just walking around with their thoughts in another place, in the past or in the future, but not really present in the now. By using mindfulness, you can create a life that brings you great relationships, enables you to meet your life goals and sets you free from negative emotions.
But what Is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness means that you’re specifically in the present. When someone is mindful, they’re aware of and paying attention to the moment that they’re in, not mired down in the past or future.
When you practice mindfulness, you focus your mind purposefully. This can be to be in the present, to focus in and on a moment, a place, a situation, or anything else that can be observed from a present state.
Have you ever driven from one place to another and at the end of your destination, you weren’t aware of the sights you saw or how you arrived there? If so, you have been drifting away with your mind and weren’t practicing mindfulness.
It’s the same concept with every area of your life. You can go through life on autopilot. This means that you can sit down and have a meal, but because you’re not practicing mindfulness, you won’t even be aware of what you had to eat in terms of portion or even the pleasure of tasting it. This is one of the main reasons people overeat.
In the better health retreats, especially those focused on a body and mind detox, they will learn you to be mindful in the present moment when you eat. To focus on the moment of eating, the food in your mouth, and the taste you can perceive. And everyone, without exception, is always surprised how good natural organic produce tastes, and how small the portions are to feel fulfilled and satisfied with their meal when they eat while being mindful of their food.
If you are not practicing mindfulness when you eat, you can eat something and then wonder later on what it was that you had for dinner. You have to stop and think to remind yourself. This goes for many things in life. If you feel like your going through life and miss things, this is because the mind has a tendency to blank or go unconsciously through the motions when you’re doing something you’ve done numerous times before.
Practicing Mindfulness To Boost Your Well-Being
Mindfulness is putting a stop to allowing the mind to simply wander unchecked. It means that you direct your mind back to focus on whatever it needs to focus on. When you don’t practice an awareness of your thoughts, you can go through life and miss out on having the best life you could possibly have.
Today, many studies have shown that there are multiple reasons why practicing mindfulness can help you create your best life. There are physical health and emotional well-being boosts that can be had when you practice mindfulness.
When you become aware in the present moment, it can soothe your emotions and help strengthen your immune system. The use of mindfulness is tied in with many forms of meditation that are designed to bring self-awareness and rid the body of negative thought patterns.
Mindfulness helps center the user and cause him or her to choose to live fully active in today rather than focus on the past or get caught up in what might happen in their future. It also helps whit mastering the Law of Attraction, as when you are in the present moment with your thoughts, there is generally not much to worry about.
This is because worrying is 99% drifting with your mind in the past and reliving a past event, or traveling in the future and composing possible worrisome outcomes that did not happen yet…
You might be surprised to learn that some of the choices that you make in life, you’re making without being fully aware in the present. When this happens, the choices that you make aren’t really the ones that can give you the best outcome.
This can impact your entire life. But when you practice mindfulness, you can make better choices and change your life to let it become the one that you’ve dreamed of living.
When the Dalai Lama was asked what surprised him most about humanity, he answered: “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present: the result being that he does not live in the present or the future: he lives as if he his never going to die, then dies having never really lived.”
