The Many Benefits Of Mindfulness

The Many Benefits Of Mindfulness | Mindful | Scoop.it
If asked to explain the value of mindfulness, you may want to consider the following question: Can you sit for one minute and completely quiet your mind? Can you do this without feeling like you're coming out of your skin?
craig daniels's insight:

The benefits of mindfulness seem to grow the more your practice it. It's kind of like a perpetual motion machine that just keeps going and going.

Agreed! Becoming mindful and awakening in this way plants seeds for further mindfulness to grow. :)

How to let go of the expectation and hype surrounding mindfulness.


"

What Is Mindfulness?

You will never find one true definition because the experience varies by culture and personal experience. Virtually all cultures around the globe have some version of what we collectively refer to as mindfulness. It could involve Eastern traditions of meditation, Western traditions of prayer, or completely secular experiences of simply living in the present moment."

craig daniels's insight:

Brad Waters shares with us a simple road map for understanding the practice of mindfulness, how it differs depending on the context of culture you put it in and why it is way simpler than some would have you believe.


Above all mindfulness is a practice built on non-striving or no goals. Sure you get better at it the more you integrate mindfulness into your daily life and routines but there is no place to get to because we are already there.


Schools for the most part haven't taught us to recognize the wonderful truth that being in the present moment is mindfulness. If your mindfulness practice is causing you stress it's probably because you are trying to get somewhere when you are already there.
