"Mindfulness" and "Focus"

So today . . . let's talk about how "focus" affects being "mindful"

Now . . . a "mindful" moment is when you "focus" on your breathing . . . not because there's something wrong . . . but rather . . . because it's a constant physical sensation . . . that's "always" there.

And whether we know it or not . . . our breathing is our "comfort zone"

This is stability, security . . . relatable and familiar. This is the center . . . of who you are.

And with this . . . it becomes an "anchor" in the "present" moment.

Now . . . I can tell you from experience . . . it is very hard to stay in that moment and "NOT" let other thoughts, emotions or sounds distract us . . .

But . . . the "true art" of this practice . . . "isn't" about "ignoring" life to "stay" in the moment . . .

It's about being able to" pull" yourself back into that "tranquil" moment of "focusing" on "your" awareness.

It's like when I tell you to be "mindful" about something we're talking about. This means to "stay" in the "present" moment of that conversation and "focus" on what I'm telling you.

This is teaching the body and mind to "listen" . . . to better "understand" the moment and the surroundings that you're in.

You see . . . a "mindful" moment can happen anywhere that you feel overwhelmed and need "focus".

It could be when you have a stressful moment at work, the kids are driving you crazy, your partner is arguing with you about something or you just feel overwhelmed with what's happening in the world today . . .
