Bring awareness to your experience…

Is mindfulness for you?

Who practices mindfulness?

The practice of mindfulness can be valuable for all people no matter what their spiritual or religious backgrounds or beliefs may be.

 

Without Mindfulness, we may find our self in a state of “mindlessness” or on “auto-pilot”.  If any of the statements below sound familiar, then you have experienced not being in the present moment.  This lack of awareness in the ‘here and now’ can result in things like poor choices, forgetfulness, mistakes, and anxiety.

 

 ‘Mindless’ Moments…

 

Reaching for the fifth cookie instead of an apple.

Believing your critical thoughts and feeling depressed.

Driving somewhere and not remembering anything about the journey.

Blurting out something you later regret.

Asking a question and not hearing the answer.

Getting out to the car and realizing you left your keys in the house.

Missing what the teacher said in the lesson.

Difficulty getting to sleep because of overwhelming thoughts.

Worrying so much about your last mistake in a competitive sport that you make another one.

Reading to the end of the page and not remembering what you read.

Forgetting the answer on an exam because you are feeling so anxious.

 

You can begin training your mind with present moment awareness.
