Practicing Mindfulness Daily
It pays to practice mindfulness daily with optimism & in a proper manner as it’s for our life transformation. Begin by being attentive to life occurrences like eating (food’s texture, taste, aroma), walking & other stimuli around you e.g. birds, dogs, plants around you without overdoing it or dramatically disrupting your daily routine.
While meditating choose an object to direct your attention e.g. your breathing. And when you find your mind getting distracted, gently-mindfully refocus it again on your chosen item e.g. on your breath.
Mindful meditation, especially when done under expert guidance, empowers you to mindfully focus your thoughts on an object/event that’s dominating your surrounding like your breathing, walking. You achieve this by centering your attention on any life event:
Do you have any significant event or opportunity impacting your living or thinking?
It could be a tragedy or even a victorious moment. While you could detox yourself to understand the larger picture to prevent you from slipping into tragic depression, you can get energetic by your victory. Hence, practicing mindfulness enables you to experience present moment’s occurrences with empathy & positivity.
