A Matter of Now...Are you here?
Mindfulness is about paying attention to the movement at hand without judging it. When we understand that everything in life is constantly changing, this understanding and acceptance is liberating in itself and then we don't lose energy in stressing ourselves about things which are changing.Thus in the very variability aspect of life, we learn to nourish our selves with an awareness of the moment.
The concept of aligning ourselves in mind, body and spirit may seem theoretically simple but is practically difficult and needs gradual dedicated practice. But a simple effort of coordination of our breath and then some gentle easy to do movements could be a start towards an integration of our mind-body connect.
Extensive research studies in the west have only reiterated what was practised and known in the eastern philosophies that mindful awareness develops our mental faculties with higher concentration abilities, improves coordination skills and brings clarity in our movements and into our lives.
Mindfulness helps us to spot out our unhelpful thought patterns and is able to make us break free from destructive and defeatist attitude and behaviour, thus gradually with consistent practice evolves us holistically. Mindful living with heartfelt awareness makes one calm, relaxed and yet alert and focused while improving our blood circulation and energy in the body We realize then, that wellness quotient is about taking care of the self in an integrated way as a way of life. It need not just be about spending time slogging through extreme gym workouts or even about unwarranted starvation diets but it could simply be about using our mind to optimize our health with gentle moves for body-mind integration, thus adopting subtle shifts of movements for a better sense of balance. As we build on these small steps, we pave the way for an attitudinal shift towards good health and optimism. Simple positive changes to our thoughts thus can change our lives And in every cultivation of gratitude for life's moments, we are learning the art of positive reflections.
Where attention is, energy is. Our life's memorable experiences are based on that which we have paid attention to. We can shift attention by leading the movement and thereby changing the thoughts. By simply caring to observe and see the little good which we may have let gone unnoticed, we can learn to look at life itself as a gift.
In caring to connect with our breath and infusing positivism we exhale the unnecessary. As we connect with others around us in a positive way we build empathetic awareness in ourselves and our surroundings.
No one is too small to make a difference.
