5 Places To Practice Mindfulness In Your Everyday Life | Mindful | Scoop.it
Research shows that most people spend up to 50 percent of their time in their heads - a tendency that does nothing to increase our happiness and in fact has been proved to be detrimental to it.
craig daniels's insight:

One of my favorite places for a little extra practice is when I'm wating in line. It doesn't matter what kind of line, it could be the market, bank or DMV.

7 Ways to be Mindful Every Day

7 Ways to be Mindful Every Day | Mindful | Scoop.it
Mindfulness has a way of sounding complicated. It’s anything but. “Mindfulness is paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present


"“Mindfulness is paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally,” according to Marsha Lucas, Ph.D, psychologist and author of Rewire Your Brain for Love."

craig daniels's insight:

I recently watch a 3 minute video produced by the good folks at TED. The video featured a woman who had found out she had a brain tumor. Her talk was about all the wonderful things that had happened to her because of that tumor or as she called it her gift.


The TED video was quite moving and jam-packed with insight and emotion. What was the big thing I took away from her talk? I took away that mindfulness is one of the most powerful practices that we can ever hope to utilize in our lives.


Paying attention gives lets us see so much more of our lives and the lives of those we love, Mindfulness opens up a reality that we mostly miss out on because of the life of distraction so many of us lead.


Come home to your life, practice mindfulness.And check out the rest of this post.

It's all in the mindfulness . . .

Put down the phone and turn off the hob, lower the laptop and switch off the radio – multitasking is officially over. Instead say hello to 'Mindfulness', a way of single tasking and living in the moment"


"The concept is very simple: by living in the moment, and focusing the mind through regular meditation, we can retrain the brain to function better."

craig daniels's insight:

I never tire of reading people accounts of how mindfulness has affected their lives. One theme always emerges, everyone has found something deeper within themselves, something they did not know was there before or at least has not known the extent it existed.


In many years of reading about their experiences I have never come across one post or article where someone wrote that mindfulness was of no use. Put some time in and mindfulness will work for you as well, how exactly it will work is as individual as we are but it will change your perceptions of yourself and your everyday reality that I'm sure of.
