Meditation Is Just A Tool | Mindful | Scoop.it
Meditation – It’s Not What You May Think Often I’ve overheard people talking about Meditation in heavy and ponderous tones, words like transcendent, zazen and enlightenment pepper the dialog and boring, aching knees and spaced-out are added for emotional emphasis, but what would you say if I told you that Meditation is just a tool …

Jefferson Hall IV's curator insight, August 28, 2015 6:25 PM

This article is all about staying present and experiencing the now. I chose to scoop this article because as a psychology major I have very interested in this type of thinking. In addition, as a college student in a high stress environment consisting of stressors such as financials, due dates, midterms, and final exams (etc.) this type of thinking can be very beneficial to the everyday student. By following the 6 steps: slowing down, getting active, trying to be more conscious, capturing the moment with your senses, paying attention to all aspects of the moment, and sharing the moment stress can be diminished yielding a better life. This article touches on the same concept of Eckhart Tolle, who is at the forefront of this type of thinking. I personally have read two of his books on staying in the present moment and chose to scoop this article as a means to share these ideas, Michele Rosenthal evidently an immensely reliable source. She is an award-winning blogger, award-nominated author, award-winning mental health advocate, and a certified professional coach. These accomplishments surely validate this post.

Salt columnist Andy Hix, from London mindfulness consultancy Your Inner Buzz, this week discusses what mindfulness is really about.

Where else am I going to be?!” It took me a little while to get my head around the fact that I’m often not here, now. I’m often time travelling. I fast forward into the future and
