Welcome to Day 1 of the mindfulness challenge. Today we’re going to be starting with the very simple practice of mindful breathing. Ready?
Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present. Not in the future, and not in the past. It is recognizing and appreciating the happiness ALREADY in your life.
There are many people who are alive, and yet aren’t even AWARE that they are alive. Mindfulness is being fully aware of the miracle of life and present to enjoy that miracle.
When you are aware of the happiness and energy already around you, you can step into that happiness and joy. You can be ESTABLISHED in the present moment.
Remember this: mindfulness is the connection and awareness of the mind and body.
Mindfulness should NOT be work or effort. You don’t need to make an effort to breathe in...
...or enjoy a sunset... ...or savor a meal. Mindfulness brings both inner and outer silence. This silence brings PEACE.
