Mindfulness and mindful living are popular right now. For many, it is not an easy task to sit, clear your mind and focus on your breath. However, there are many ways to embrace mindful living.
Mindful living is about creating an ability to be in your present moment, pleasant or unpleasant. We decrease suffering by decreasing judgment around you and slow down.
This increases your ability to be fully engaged in relationships and get the most out of them, allows you to slow your mind and see things as they are instead of catastrophizing or seeing things as all or nothing and allow your peace and stillness within your mind.
If you have tried mindful living and meditation before and found it challenging, no worries, it takes practice, the right teacher and and ability to find what way engaging in mindful living works best for you!
