Mindfulness For Beginners

Tuesday 05 April, 2016.

Do you need mindfulness for beginners? Do you want to change your awareness and reduce tension?

Mindfulness for beginners
 will take you on a quick introductory tour of one of the best ways to change your approach to life…

It works so well for me…

And I have seen the difference it makes to friends and clients when they remember to pay attention to the moment.

You might wonder what this picture has to do with mindfulness?

Well, that is exactly it!

Mindfulness starts (and ends) with paying mind to the details of what you happen to be doing NOW…

Mindfulness for beginners is so simple… learn to taste each mouthful of food, it’s texture, it’s colours, it’s affect on your palette…

Pay attention to each task… whether it is washing dishes (the colours in the soap suds), driving your car (the feel of the seat against your back), signing a document (the sound of the pen on the paper)…

This does not mean that you move through your day detached and unaware – in fact, it is quite the opposite. A mindfulness attitude cuts out the panic, stress and anxiety of reacting every little stimulus that crosses your path. It is a way of giving our full attention to present moment reality so that we can dwell in a state of clarity and balance rather than distraction and distress.

What if you could profoundly change your life just by becoming more mindful of your breathing?

According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, you can. What if “paying attention on purpose and non-judgmentally” could improve your health? Again, according to Dr. Kabat-Zinn—it can.

On Mindfulness for Beginners Unabridged on 2 CD’s this internationally known scientist, best-selling author, and teacher gives you immediate access to a practice that can potentially add years to your life, and will certainly enhance the quality of your moments and your years.

In mindfulness, there is both a formal and an informal practice. The formal practice is that of meditation which is done in pure silence, away from any tendency to get distracted.

The idea, then, is to carry this practice into the rest of your day. Even tying your shoes becomes an incredibly interesting event when we give it our full attention. If you think about it, most of the moments of our lives are filled with mundane events that we can so easily overlook or dismiss as not worthy of our care or attention…

If we are paying attention – being mindful – we will see that life is full of little moments and subtle nuances that can infuse the ordinary with a quality of magic; a sacredness.

Mindfulness is, in my opinion, the greatest antidote we have to all of the stress, disrespect, confusion, and alienation we feel in our modern world.

Grab yourself good book on the subject and be your own teacher…

Have a look at our recommended selection of mindfulness books, and treat yourself!

Mindfulness for beginners is really simple…

Whatever you’re doing, where-ever you are – just notice it.

And start Living Everyday Better!
