We’ll spend the next 7 days creating a Healthy Mind and A Healthy Life
When You take care of your mind you are able to take care of all the aspects of your life.
When our Lives and Bodies are healthier so are our minds. It’s cyclical.
Everyone thinks being mindful is complicated. Really it’s quite simple. Doing what we can do right here, right now is a step in the right direction. Together, over the next 7 days we will spend our time exploring all the dimensions of mindfulness and ways to practice being mindful.
According to Steve Flowers’ Mindfulness is:
Non-Judgmental – be accepting of yourself rather than critical.
It’s the Moment-to-Moment Here-and-Now Awareness- You CAN be here rather than somewhere worrying about the future or the past.
It’s Having Compassionate & Open-Hearted Awareness- You can extend compassion to yourself rather than condemnation.
It’s being Open to Fully Being_ Stop identifying with a false and limiting sense of self.
It’s having a Generous Spirit- Free yourself from the prison of self-consciousness and extend the same generosity of spirit to others as you do yourself.
It’s about Being With & Turning Toward- stop avoiding thoughts/feelings that scare you and stop self-criticism and shame that are fueled by avoidance.
