Today, it seems like life is simply moving too fast. We seem to always be working on accomplishing many overlapping tasks simultaneously, leaving no or little time to relax and breathe. Either we are consumed thinking about our past or we are pondering what the future holds. Yet rarely are we truly thinking about or just being in the present moment.
Competing with time, people, and expectations have left us no room for slowing down and focusing on what we are sensing or feeling in the moment. And that is exactly what mindfulness is all about. Mindfulness is a type of meditation, a practice, a technique of being aware of the moment with no judgement or fear. It is about accepting and embracing what is, rather than what could be or should be. It involves breathing methods, imagery to calm the mind and body to reduce physical, emotional and mental stress.
Psychologists have been studying mindfulness for decades now. Some studies show that being aware of your present and becoming mindful of what you do has many benefits in the short and long term:
Many studies have shown that practicing mindfulness daily keeps your blood pressure in check, the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, and improves sleep.
When the mind is not able to relax even for a few minutes for days and months, stress, anxiety and depression seep in. Mindfulness allows you to de-stress and make time for experiencing the present, thus freeing you from the shackles of past and present.
Just like cultivating every other habit, practicing mindfulness requires time, dedication and consistency. Actively including below mentioned routine activities in your schedule can help you become aware, thus leading to a peaceful mind.
The more aware you are of yourself and your surroundings, the more you live in the present, the more peace and happiness is what you’ll attract in your life. Switching to a more meaningful and mindful lifestyle will influence your body and mind positively. Some of the easiest ways include - practicing mindful eating, focusing on one task at a time and embracing your own self.
