The way you view the world around you has everything to do with your current state of mind, and overall experience of wellness.
So, how do you see your world?
You may have already noticed that when it comes to personal health, family, relationships and work, an open mind versus a closed one, produces completely different results.
Outdated beliefs and dis-empowering habits that we (and our culture) reinforce from as early as childhood, can blur your vision, cause you to form rash assumptions, and react automatically. All without stepping back to observe the big picture.
How does this happen?
We humans are storehouses of emotions. Some of them packed away so deeply, that we’re unaware they’re playing a role in our daily decision-making. In fact, they may silently dictate how things roll on any given day.
Amid the noise and busy-ness of your life, you may not take time to sort out what’s working for you and what might be holding you back.
What if there was a way to put on a new pair of glasses, in an effort to observe, without judgment, your operating system? There is, and it’s not new. Enter mindful awareness.
What is mindful awareness?
Perhaps you’ve heard a lot about mindfulness recently, but may be confused as to its real meaning or worth. Let’s keep this simple; mindfulness is the practice of (re)directing your moment-to-moment attention, to gain clarity and compassion before reaction.
Mindfulness and awareness training, allow you to see more clearly, to step back and observe patterns and the whole picture, not just its individual parts.
Why would that be helpful?
Many of us have made attempts to enact positive change (including adding meditation to our daily schedules), only to be thwarted by ingrained patterns, negative thinking, and mind traps that derail our progress.
On top of that, we tend to paint a picture with a broad stroke, dismissing the drama and pertinent clues that can provide previously unrecognized bias.
Consider the implications of formal and informal practices that in time, help to diminish assumption-making and over-reacting, increase self-love and care, and heighten physical and emotional well being.
The path to freedom from unhealthy mindsets is just around the corner.
