Have you ever wondered what it means to live in the present?
Well, the actual term used for this state of mind of "living in the present" is referred to as "mindfulness". Some of you may have heard of this??
The clinical definition of mindfulness is-
Yes, we do because everyone has the natural ability for being fully present of where they are and what they are doing while not being overly reactive or overwhelmed with what is going on around them. However, the question is a matter of wanting to and allowing our natural abilities to be present is what it truly boils down to.
So how do we allow for living in the present or obtaining this mindfulness?
While mindfulness is something we all naturally possess, it’s more readily available to us when we practice on a daily basis. Yes, this is a form of living that has to be practiced because in general life doesn't foster these natural abilities with the "always on the go" lifestyles most of us live.
YOU have to decide to bring awareness to what you are directly experiencing via your senses, thoughts and emotions. YOU have to decide to change your state of mind to being mindful or not. Plus there's various research that when you train your brain to the natural state of being mindful, you are actually remodeling the physical structure of your brain. Something to think about..
So how do you practice Mindfulness??
Well, again that depends on you but below are a few ways to include Mindfulness in your daily life-
Remember YOU decide on your state of being and how you live...
Great quote that I am trying to incorporate not only in my personal daily life but also in my private practice--
“Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally,” says Kabat-Zinn. “And then I sometimes add, in the service of self-understanding and wisdom.”
