"Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens." Published by the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley
We've all heard the term "Mindfulness". It started out as a "New Age" practice and has now earned the attention of medical professionals. We have over 30,000 thoughts a day and it's believed 80% of those thoughts are the same as the day before. It is also said, a majority of those thoughts are negative. As someone who struggled with negative thought my entire life I wasn't surprised to learn many of my clients also experienced the same problem.
Which begs the question, why?
I believe Mindfulness is the most under-rated tool in our toolbox. It's available to everyone no matter what particular corner of hell you reside in. Mindfulness can be used to shift your thought processes which in turn will create new neural pathways in your brain which will eventually, with repetition, lead to less and less negative thought.
Mindfulness is described as a "meditation" which gives people the idea they have to sit in silence and stop themselves from thinking. I describe it as a working practice which can be and should be implemented into your daily life.
