Life can move so fast these days. I’ve often felt in my own life that I’m on a conveyor belt that just seems to get faster and faster.
Sometimes this is just the way life is, but sometimes it’s the way we let it be. I’ve noticed in these times that we can miss out on so much, especially the feelings that are inextricably linked to what is going on around us. I know from personal experience the need to continually check-in, re-evaluate and adjust my life in order to become (and stay) more deeply connected to myself and my world. One of the amazing tools I use to do this is Mindfulness.
Mindfulness is all about learning to become more present and aware. It can help you in so many areas of your life – in calming the mind and relaxing the body, managing stress and anxiety, developing self-esteem and promoting self-awareness. Mindfulness meditation is learning to let go and be present. It takes practice. Used properly, in conjunction with therapy, it leads to a clearer mind and a tranquil heart.
