Mindfulness is the most powerful skill you can learn and that’s why it is essential to master it.
Mindfulness practice requires intense focus and large patience to silence.
But the better you understand it, the better you can help yourself.
The better you can help yourself, the happier you’ll be.
Mindfulness teaches us the way to be present and the way to exist within the moment.
This helps us to rise above the stressful thoughts when we are stuck in our heads and it helps to ‘reprogram‘ our mind so that it serves us better.
Balance. That’s what an incredible number of people lack these days.
Living faster than ever before, constant distractions, constant dopamine flow.
The body and the mind can’t catch up with that.
We became dopamine junkies and mindfulness helps us to restore, so much needed balance.
So we use mindfulness as a tool to deal with stresses and anxiety but what really is mindfulness about?
I invite you to watch this video where Eckhart Tolle together with Jack Kornfield, a renowned Buddhist meditation teacher, and author, discusses what really mindfulness is.
