Being mindful means:
“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” – Jon Kabat Zinn
In our current world, we are always being bombarded by information that is trying to get our attention. It could be the ads we watch on TV, social media or even well meaning family and friends.
If we are constantly reacting to everything around us, we jump from one thing to another and our mind lacks mindfulness.
We have been so busy multitasking, we haven't stoped to ask if this is a skill that we shold get good at.
So, how can we begin to change this?
Here are two questions to ask yourself:
1. “What is happening now?”
This question tunes you into the present moment awareness without engaging it or becoming distracted by it.
The experience of watching and simply being aware of your emotional spectrum as “information.”
2. As you watch and are aware of your emotions say to yourself, “this is just information.”
If you can receive what is coming in as simply information instead of a threat, then you can choose how to engage instead of reacting.
