What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is returning your awareness from your wandering mind to what’s happening in the present moment, and doing so with acceptance. You have to return your awareness again and again because the mind wanders endlessly.
How can I practise mindfulness?
All the mindfulness exercises and mindfulness techniques that you can find on this website and in my books and courses are aimed at helping you to do that. The simplest method is to practise returning your awareness to your breathing because your breathing is always happening in the present moment.
Mindfulness lowers stress, helps you to relate in a different way to the challenges of life and enhances your sense of well-being. You can be mindful anywhere and you don’t need any kind of equipment – so mindfulness is completely mobile.
I don’t have the time for mindfulness.
Yes you do. You can make mindfulness part of your day and you can decide that you will do some of your routine activities (drinking tea, brushing your teeth etc) mindfully, for instance. If you can put some time aside to just be mindful, all the better but you can practice mindfulness even if you can’t find that time. My mindfulness exercises and mindfulness techniques are aimed at people who are very busy – and nowadays that means almost everybody.
