Mindfulness in Life Experiences
To be present in life requires mindfulness.
Mindfulness is being aware, paying attention without attachment by choice.
Choosing to be present in the moment.
Mindfulness is a state of being where body and mind are in the same mental and physical place at the same time.
In that moment, thoughts of past or future don’t exist.
It is so easy to go through daily routines or just “go through the motions.”
Mindfulness would be to step outside that pattern and be aware of the actions, things you are doing throughout the day.
The Benefits of Being Mindful
It can reduce stress by having awareness of thoughts and emotions that are occurring in the moment. There is an opportunity to process them.
Situations are no longer just reactionary.
What this means is having self control and not reacting with a response of impulsive behavior. In addition, mindfulness allows for mental calmness in a state of composure. Within that composure is mental clarity and concentration.
You place all focus on what you are doing with aligned action. Awareness for where you are in the moment. Living into who you are choosing to be with intention and discipline. Functioning from a conscious thought process. This could be referred to as “the higher self” or “divine self.”
There is one important attribute that mindfulness offers in life. It is the ability to relate to self and others. In this space, kindness, compassion and acceptance are visible in awareness. Mindfulness can offer other perspectives. The perspectives offer other opportunities and choices.
There is a choice to step into the intentions of who you are being.
From my own personal experience, mindfulness has helped me with connection.
Mindfulness helps bring me back to a neutral operating state. Release from the dominating thoughts of judgment.
Letting go of the worries, the doubts.
It is a place of focus and intention on the present.
It breaks moments down into observable pieces.
You notice things start to slow down.
There is an appreciation for all that is right now.
