Mindfulness is about living in the moment and being fully aware of what is going on at all times. When we “practice” this while mindfully meditating – following the breath and not allowing any thoughts in…letting them float by like clouds on a windy sky…then there is a “spillover effect” into everyday life: being able to be mindful while doing (almost) anything and having clearer focus, greater calm and enhanced creativity-productivity!
It’s easy to forget to live in the moment while keeping the big picture in sight. It’s helpful to remember that life is transient; many “unfortunate” or “worrisome” things are temporary and that the only time that truly exists ever is right now. RIGHT NOW is the ONLY time you can do or change anything in your life. And NOW is the only time you have. There are few of us that live in the present, we are forever anticipating what is to come or remembering what has gone.
I’ve been trained in the practice of mindfulness by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and co-facilitated MBSR groups with a local medical doctor. Mindfulness is in the curriculum for Anger Management, and is highly effective in helping to create good choices in all areas of life and career. Corporate and organizational seminars and classes onsite are available.
