What About Mindfulness Scares Us? | Mindful | Scoop.it
Jon Kabat-Zinn, a professor of medicine emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and a pioneer in applying mindfulness to the field of medicine, discussed how the concept can be integrated into K-12 education.

"Dogs are great practitioners of mindfulness, according to Jonathan Kaplan, PhD"


"Besides being nonjudgmental (dogs think their owners are great no matter what kind of bad hair day they are having), dogs live only in the present moment"



craig daniels's insight:

There are teachers all around us that can help us get a handle on living a mindful life. In this post from AARP Carole Carson shares with us a number of ways to bring mindfulness into our life and reduce stress and tension in our lives.


Carson suggests we spend some time watching a dog go through its day and we'll see how they live in the moment. If you don't have a pet you can pick up a number of books like Full Catastrophe Living.


Learning mindfulness is probably much simpler than you think, in fact you already know how to be mindful you just need to be reminded.... Watch your neighbor's cat.
