Mindfulness is the practice of bringing one's attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment,[1] which can be developed through the practice of meditation.[1] The term "mindfulness" is a translation of the Pali-term sati,[2] which is a significant element of some Buddhist traditions.

    How to Live ON PURPOSE and Maximize Every Freaking Day

    Today can be as great as you want it to be.
    Your fate isn’t set. You get to decide how much of yourself you’re going to put into today.
    Rather than saying, “Well, we’ll see what happens,” you must powerfully state, “Today, I’m going to make it happen!”
    When you go into the gym, you get to decide how hard you’re going to work out. But one thing is for certain, you’ll feel far better if you walk out 30–60 minutes later having given it everything you’ve got.
    The same goes with your day.
    It’s actually far more exhausting to not work than it is to work. It takes far more energy sitting with internal conflict and justification than it does to just get to work. Said Steven Pressfield, “Most of us have two lives: the life we liveand the un-lived life within us. Between the two stands resistance.”
    If your life feels out-of-whack or out-of-balance, you’re likely avoiding the very thing you should be doing. It’s only in doing that thing that you’ll regain balance and peace. Avoidance leads to busyness and distraction.

    @Sonny Melendrez how wonderful are those three expressions "something to do, to love, to forward" without expectations in return. Every human truly like to hear and it's become a more customized inhumane nature to think what's for me. "Color of life is crystal clear, only upon variances of colors can be seen in depth" and "Life as a music, a choreography of the connections .. like the ways of rhythm, orchestra, chronology and symphony.. resulting in purposeful music (with time and more of customized cultured culture trending trends trend things become more of commercials)". The way I see it: Kaleidoscopic effect.

    #7 food for thought. Sometimes overcoming barriers and exceeding expectations gives a glimpse of a dream which no one else in the world can see. They see achievement and they may pretend about potential but only i knew about the possibility.

    And yes , i never said success but achievements too. Different lives, different experiences.

    What i feel, the world conditions us to follow the sheep, we get countless expereinces to realise we can be different, the lucky few do it first up, some get it half right and learn from it while many look at such experiences as mistakes and become the brooding sheep.

    Sometimes you just take it for granted. And you stop evolving... you loose momentum and the benefits begin to fade away. @Deb 🐝 Helfrich is right about being clear on knowing what makes our essential selves come alive. I've been getting better at it by connecting more and feeding my mind with things that help me understand the bigger picture. Success does not automatically fuel the drive. Finding meaning does it. I am learning that we gotta keep the main thing, the main thing. :) Take care. Close

    This is an artfully crafted post, @Mindful Tee. Really pleased to have you sharing your story and your Mindful Tees on beBee.

    Resistance is the mental equivalent of friction and it is very debilitating. Most especially when we aren't conscious of some of the underlying habits that put us into a repetitive cycle of preempting ourselves just as things seem to start humming smoothly, we encounter drag and lose all of the momentum.

    In some respects, a large part of this problem, though, is that we are in conflict. What we think we want, most likely because of societal pressure, is not what truly makes our essential selves come alive.

    Doing the difficult work of gaining clarity on what makes us, as a unique individual come alive, and taking that as our first principle for making the major decisions of our lives can have a revolutionary effect on the consistent return of that feeling of overwhelming drag just as we start to cruise along the freeways of life.

    However, you have nailed the aspect that we need to always work to be connecting with other people. Sharing the movement of life with a community is a fabulous way to draft in the slipstream as people lead during the parts of life that they find enlivening, pulling others along in their vortex.

    Hopefully you will find beBee to be a fruitful part of your journey!

    Great blog, @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.. Thank you for sharing your experience and for drawing me into mindfulness. I don't believe it is a coincidence that I am reading this today after having mindfulness mentioned to me in the past 24 hours after publishing a poem that I wrote. Your post gave me pause to reflect on how and where my best mindfulness occurs. It's usually on my evening workout where I traverse the terrain for about 2 miles. The fresh air is rejuvenating and freeing simultaneously. It enables me to decompress, destress and find a bit of balance. I definitely notice the difference when it is absent from my routine as my mind is more cluttered and my thoughts more anxious. But I also find my zen in writing and in the uninhibited laughter I experience with my friends and family. I get wanting to "empty" your brain. There have been nights where my mind doesn't turn off and it does cause restlessness. That's when I am slowly learning to pick up a book, read, and relax. It seems to be working and I need to practice it more. Thank you for sharing this and for opening your thoughts to us.

    What a lovely blog @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.. I think it's cool that you were able to attend a seminar on mindfulness. I think for myself, mindfulness comes to me in different forms. Music takes my mind on a journey that is hard to describe, the scents of the woods after the rain, flower gardens, and I can't leave out my photography. Photography takes me away from all of life's stressors and it brings to life different senses when I upload, view and many times edit. As for people, I have to say I really try to keep in mind that everyone has struggles we don't know about. I find it's easier for some to share their struggles and for others- it may be way too painful or they are just that private. I try to remember that say the clerk who is waiting on me in a store and might be cranky towards me really isn't angry with me, maybe someone ahead of me gave her a hard time, maybe she has a sick loved one at home she's worried about and on the list could go. When someone is mean to me (if it's not too crude lol) I honestly try hard to say something nice to them and people would be surprised how many people seem to smile after they realize others do care. It's great to be mindful of others too. Thanks for tagging me @Ken Boddie!

    @Ken Boddie thanks for the tag. Now I need to get a cat outta the bag;) I have had my share of silence, i must now exercise some poetic licence;)

    Allow me a few words on awareness and mindfulness. Awareness is the door, for perception to receive its guests - the sensations, courtesy the senses. Meditation is the stilling of the senses - in a neutral, quiet environment, that automatically clears the mind of its thoughts. You are then aware of only being aware. An emptied / empty mind is a great medium, primed for the highest perception the moment our senses are deployed through acts of intense concentration. Concentration is often done to visualise something when it is not accompanied by physical action. When you visualise with the greatest of clarity and detail, you create. You enable the thought to become a thing. You materialise that into your life in just a matter of some time. But then again, going back, Awareness is always the first condition. The more aware / mindful you are, the higher the quality of meditation or concentration, and the greater the success. ;)

    #42 @Don 🐝 Kerr no (well maybe --but that's not germane)...the important information here is that the comment box "ate up" my carefully crafted "white space metrics"...if the white space had been preserved; one could "hear" the "in space nobody can hear you scream".

    Another piece of "solo performance improv" down the drain...

    Silence is Golden. The control we need to achieve quietude is humongous. But great ideas and thoughts are born during our silence ans disconnect from all the commotion around us. Sometimes Control and silence make great partners and should go hand in hand.

    Oftentimes, without expressing sensibly, social media addicts have forgotten essence of silence and have become ready for chirping mindlessly. That's simply too bad!

    "In ancient China a terrible and ferocious warlord was ransacking the countryside. Coming upon a Zen monastery his army began killing and pillaging. When the warlord entered the inner courtyard he found the abbot of the monastery sitting in a chair. The abbot said firmly, "Get out of my monastery." The powerful warlord walked up to the abbot, sword in hand, and said, "You don't understand. I could kill you without blinking an eye." The abbot replied, "No, you don't understand. I could die without blinking an eye." After this the warlord became a devotee of the abbot." from a recent post on LinkedIn by Alan Geller.

    3 Easy Applications of Neuroscience in Real LifeI've always been fascinated with the human brain.

    Great buzz @Sarah Elkins!....Being able to laugh, especially at a time when things are not quite so funny, carriers with it an enormous capacity to heal...Same goes for courageously facing our fears breaks through the barriers that set them in motion in the first place;-) We all need to lighten up a little and dump some of the baggage we are hauling around in our hearts!

    #6 The huge problem, @Ian Weinberg is not discovering the roles of neurotransmitters, etc, but making the leap from labelling and correlating, to the behavioral world. As an example, there has been strides in understanding some of the biology behind mental illness, but we are just not very good at truly understanding how to "fix" it. The tools are crude, the results all over the block. And the mechanism for pharamceuticals are still often unknown and results unpredictable.

    We're at the beginning, but there are a lot of people writing pop psych, and misleading folks about what we know and can do.

    As I read your buzz @Sarah Elkins it brought me back a bit. I remember when I worked for the County I would keep lollipops and other candies on my desk. Our department dealt with divorce proceedings and many of these people would bring their children- I always had something to give the kids; they were already scared and stressed from the ordeal not to mention coming into our building, it would always put a smile on their face. I love how you used the "F" word to get a reaction and laughter. My mom never used the "F" word and one day she was really upset... she had a hard time expressing herself and would turn inwards. My sister said, "Mom when I get upset I say, Shi*, *F", da*m," you just need to say that and it will make you laugh." My mom was determined she would not repeat those words. My sister and both started saying it while we were also cracking ourselves up at the same time. All of a sudden we hear this faint voice repeating the words. Then mom said it in a stronger voice, we were all laughing so hard. Mom didn't like swearing but on that day, she realized it wasn't directed at anyone and they were just words. Great story Sarah, I really enjoyed this!!

    Good article. The mood control is from a chemical called serotonin which is produced in the brain.

    #3 Thanks for the invite @David B. Grinberg. Enlightening article @Sarah Elkins Yes @Robert Bacal we're still groping a little in the dark, but we've made significant strides in certain areas. Regarding humor and curiosity as enhancers - it's pretty clear at this stage of research that they both increase dopamine secretion. Curiosity enhances hippocampal function through dopamine secretion thus enhancing memory/learning. Humor reflects a dynamic where an unpredicted/surprising occurrence that is noted as such results in a dopamine mediated 'spurt of mirth'. See https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/neuroscience-is-a-joke Raised dopamine (together with raised serotonin) have been shown to diminish inflammatory activity generally (brain and body). An important effect since chronic inflammation underpins many illnesses.

    #3 @David B. Grinberg That's a myth. To add about neuroscience:

    While great strides have been made due to scanning technologies, much of the stuff one reads about "neuroscience" is pop psychology -- written not by neurologists and researchers, but by people who tend to be ill equpped to interpret the results, journalists and/or pop psych. writers. As @Sarah Elkins states, we know remarkably little about how the brain works, (and how brain function maps on to the external world and behavior.

    Nice buzz, Sarah! You're preaching to the proverbial choir on my end. I've read that most humans only use about 10% of our brain power. Thus, what would be possible if we were able to use 50% or 75% -- the answers would boggle the mind (for lack of a better term).
    I'm reminded of the Hollywood film "Lucy" in which actress Scarlett Johansson plays a character who is able to harness increasing amounts of her brain power. Here's the movie trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVt32qoyhi0
    I'm copying beBee's resident neurology expert, @Ian Weinberg, as I'm interested on his take. Thanks in advance for chiming in on this, Ian.
    Also, Sarah, I wish you all the best with your conference and regret being unable to attend. It sounds like an amazing event!

    Love it Sarah! I work for the State of NY, and love to open with "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help!" Along with a wry smile, the dichotomy almost always melts the ice with disgruntled landowners.

    La lectura es un gran aliado en el trabajo con menores y familias. No solo por el buen rato, por lo que aprenden y reflexionan, sino porque al terapeuta nos permite crear nuevas actividades y ejemplos a partir de estos, y mezclarlos directamente con el mundo de cada joven cliente.
