Mind – A Daily Practice
For most of us, a time comes when we question our life - Is this all there is? Many of us feel overwhelmed by our responsibilities, commitments and sometimes our dreams. Even those who know we have the makings of a good thing all around us find ourselves feeling anxious, unhappy, and wishing things were different. We end up cruising through life on autopilot missing the small things that often end up being the most important. We struggle to tame our chattering monkey mind that jumps from one thought to the next at an exhausting pace.
But there are people who've applied a practice of mindfulness to help them quiet their internal dialogue, feel more peaceful and live life more fully. They've used techniques like deep breathing, meditation or yoga to help them shift their perspective or change the lens through which they look at life. To step back and see their thoughts and feelings in a new light. To discover a sense of self deeper than passing circumstances and emotions.
…A practice such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing that centers you and encourages mindfulness throughout the day.
…A way to ease anxiety and doubt, to increase feelings of peacefulness, relax the body, reduce pain and depression, and boost the immune system.
…A way to deepen your awareness and appreciation of the world around you.
…A means of developing a connection to a stronger, larger, more loving and openhearted self.
A Daily Mindful Practice, whether it's for five minutes or an hour, is the cornerstone of all Daily Practices. It builds a foundation of mindfulness.
