A mindful space is one you can come into for a sense of clarity, or a pause in the day or a rest from the busyness going on around you.
How do you enter it? By becoming aware of your breathing or of your body.
But it’s not just that – the important thing is that you don’t engage with the thoughts that are running through your mind. You let them go by without getting involved in them. And the way that you do that, again, is to keep bringing your attention back to your breathing or your body.
Your mind will drift away again and again, even while you’re in that space. But keep bringing it back.
In that space you can get a sense of clarity, which can be very pleasant. You will usually also get a sense of relaxation. You can even get the break you need in your stream of thoughts to give you a new sense of perspective or to make a better choice.
Don’t have time for it? The good news is that it doesn’t take a long time.If you can’t go into the mindful space for five or six or seven minutes, go into it for two or three or four minutes. If you can do it for, say, 10 minutes all the better.
That mindful space can add significantly to your quality of life. So try it out – see what it’s like.
