What is being "Mindful" all about?


Okay . . . so the first question for today is this . . . are you a . . .


"Mind-full" person . . .


Or a "Mindful" person???


Well today . . . let's discover the "difference" . . . and why being "mindful" is so important to ones "health".


Now . . . being "mind-full" . . . means . . . over-thinking, which can become toxic and lead to unhappiness,


It can cause . . . anxiety and sleep deprivation. And when your "mind" is so "full" with thoughts . . . it can even "alter" the mind's capability to "process" new "incoming" information.


This now becomes a "mental overload" and the "body" no longer is "aware" of its true "surrounding".


Now . . . being able to "multitask" is a good thing in life . . . but . . . when we have "too" much on our plate . . . this "increases" the production of the "stress" hormone called "cortisol" and our "adrenaline" . . .


And with this . . . the brain becomes "overstimulated" and "overloaded" with "thought".


This is being "mind-full" . . .


Okay . . . so "mindful or "mindfulness" . . . means maintaining a "moment-by-moment" awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and our surrounding environment.


It's about living in the "moment" of our "thoughts" in that time and place . . .


This is called . . . being in the "present".


And it's about living in the "tranquility" . . . of that "moment".


You see . . . "tranquility" supports "mindfulness" . . . and in turn . . . "mindfulness" supports "tranquility".


And this "tranquility" . . . is being "free" from disturbance . . . in a state of "calm" and peacefulness . . .


And "mindfulness" and its "tranquility" . . . can "relieve" stress, treat heart disease, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain, improve sleep and aid in healing "gastrointestinal illness".


"Mindfulness" is paying attention to what's happening around you and accepting yourself for who you are . . . "not" who you want to be or others think you should be.


It's about . . . having patience, trusting, listening to others before you speak, letting go of the burdens you carry . . . and holding "gratitude" in your heart.

You see . . . being a "mindful" person . . . is being "open-minded" to what life has put in front of you. It's about "clarity" . . . "not" looking at the world through "rose-colored glasses" . . . or " jumping to "conclusion".

And in today's crazy world . . . it's very hard to be in the "moment" and therefore . . . "mindful".


But in reality . . . that's "really" where we need to be . . . especially NOW!!!


You see . . . being in a state of "mind-full" . . . only allows us to "rehash" the "past" . . . or "imagine" only the "future".


And living in the "past" or projecting the "future" . . . is "NOT REALITY"


"REALITY" can only happen in the "PRESENT"


Now . . . I know that mission of being in the "present" for many of us . . . is a very hard place to be . . .


But . . the body needs to try . . . because this "silence" or "inner peace" eliminates anxiety, fear, worries, negative thoughts, stress and unhappiness


So what does "mindfulness" and its "tranquility" do for our health?


Well . . . tomorrow we'll discover the possibilities . . .
