Being mindful isn’t just about being alerted to something and then being mindful of your actions. It is about paying attention to your environment and your lives presently.
It is also not something we will all have in our lifetime, but that part is always up to us. Being mindful is something you must hone, and something that can have a positive impact on both your personal and professional life.
Being mindful helps us improve ourself and our relationships. Being mindful is listening carefully to what others have to say; looking at our lifestyles again, trying meditation and incorporating that into our daily routine.
It is important we practice being mindful. Focus on your breathing, use visualisation, think about and be aware of your feelings. Analyse your thoughts. Think about how you feel, why you feel how you feel. Think about your experiences. It is not just your experience in that moment that makes you feel unhappy, sad, or angry.
Being mindful is something we must all work on for us to work successfully together, for us make the world a more secure place. It’s something we can teach ourselves. Train your mind to see the good in people, in society and in the world and change your internal dialogue so you use empathy, compassion and tolerance, instead of irritability, anger and abuse.
Don’t assume something without really knowing or understanding; change your lifestyle habits so you become more mindful and acknowledge your progress. The more mindful you are, the more benefits you bring to your life, and to those around you also.
