Today most of us are occupied with heaps of work and to complete the never ending work we resort to multi-tasking. We try to couple of things that should not mix. For example most of eat our lunch while using our phone or while being glued to the computer screen and that causes further more stress in our lives. Practicing mindfulness is a way to fight anxiety and we all should practice it.
Now what is Mindfulness?
It means concentrating on what is in front of us. A person need to live in the moment instead of wandering in the world of thoughts. Most of are constantly worried about future and that causes extreme stress. What we need to do is, we simply need to let go those thoughts and live in the present moment. This helps in releasing stress.
How can I practice Mindfulness?
You don’t need any training to practice mindfulness. You just need to concentrate on yourself. It is something like meditation. Close your eyes and take deep breaths, concentrate on the inhaling the oxygen and exhaling the carbon-di-oxide. Practice Mindfulness is as simple as simple as breathing. You just have to be aware of your surroundings and your feelings. Take a walk and think about the trees, the butterfly, the fresh air around yourself and you will feel so much better about yourself.
What are the benefits of practicing Mindfulness?
It helps you in killing stress that is caused by everyday life. It also helps you in increasing your memory power and increasing the concentration level. It is said that people who practice mindfulness are more emotionally stable.
So you don’t need to dedicate special time for all this. You can simply improve your life by practising mindfulness while you are living your routine life.
