WTF is mindfulness?

 

Being aware of your thoughts and surroundings whilst also being able to focus on the task at hand. Not only that, but being aware of your actions and how they affect other people around you and the environment.


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

So being in the moment! Not thinking about anything but the task at hand.

@j95 haha I feel you there. I don't think I can do it very well, but it's hard to explain.

That's okay @j95, I have trouble putting it in words as well.

Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

I googled it sorry, Mindfulness is: 

 

a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

 

I think it is something that most of us almost never think about. No wonder we're often so busy and uneasy.

@N1ghtW1ng i can't even spell in English most of the time pretty much doomed as far as German goes... 

 

 

@j95 it's tricky to explain isn't it! Can you describe it in terms of how it feels?

Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

Is it like being aware of your feelings and your body at the present moment?

@Ben-RO actually your sleeping point is pretty interesting, because in a way mindfulness is all about being still and calm and that's kind of what sleep can be like. While your sleeping, you're not thinking about the past or future or your feelings or thoughts or anything. You're just there in the moment, although you're not aware of it Smiley Tongue
