Mindful Here and Now!
Being mindful, living mindfully, is to live in conscious awareness of the here, now, and this before us. Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of, and attention to our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.
Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them as a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.
Mindfulness is also the practice of conscious and active alignment with our guiding values, principles, and ideals. The practice of mindfulness keeps us aligned with what is true and good to us. It enables us to make choices and decisions that empower our values, ideals, intentions, and goals. It is the essential element to living consciously, with intention.
The practice of mindfulness can bring a variety of physical, psychological, and social benefits. Here are some of the benefits as identified by UCLA Berkley - Greater Good / The Science of a Meaningful Life:
