How To Practice Mindfulness When You Don't Have The Time

How To Practice Mindfulness When You Don't Have The Time | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

We now have the scientific evidence to back up those claims. Research conducted by Greg Feist of San Jose State University found that when people let their focus shift away from others around them, they're better able to engage in "metacognition," the process of thinking critically and reflectively about your own thoughts.

 

Where things get tricky, though, is figuring out what to do in order to encourage metacognitive thought in the first place. When we're routinely overwhelmed with outside noise, carving out space for unstructured daydreaming takes planning, structure.

 

Sometimes the most productive periods of contemplation come to us unawares and don't last very long—but that doesn't mean they aren't useful.

I close my eyes and recite a short set of lines I have used for a number of years. It calms when things are harried.

(From the article): Here are seven ways you can practice mindfulness with your technology platforms. Try these practices as an experiment to raise your own awareness. Refrain from judging yourself or being too harsh about how these practices work for you. These exercises are intended to raise awareness by simply being aware.

Some great practices to help ensure our technological gadgets serve us rather than the other way round.
Annette Schmeling's curator insight, January 16, 2013 12:14 PM

Technology can be an anxiety-producing energy depending on our approach. How we discipline ourselves and think about the daily onslaught of e-mail, voicemail, and text messages impacts how much we are truly connected or disconnected in our life. Mindfulness practices recommended in this article are very practical and impacts the quality of connections between people and their capacity to feel seen, heard and valued.
