Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

Ah sorry! Got distracted!

Usual ways could be using apps, unusual ways could be listening to music or doing sport alone

Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

.. what are some usual and unsusal things you have used or heard of someone using to be mindful?
Hey guys, sorry im late.
Tbh this is the first time I've heard of mindfulness, so i haven't heard of usual or unusual thing people do to achieve mindfulness.
But from what i think it is the it wouldn't be sleepingas sleeping is an altered state of consciousness and you have no control over what comes into your mind so you may not focus on the now, but anything really.

Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

Depending on the individual, what ever mindfulness technique works for them can be completely normal. As long as its safe... but yeah, if the individual thinks it works that fine.
Haha. Princess diaries quote. "The queen is never late, everyone else is simply early." Haha. That reminded me of that @stonepixie

Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

Hmm, time for the next Q! I think we're all getting a bit sleepy Smiley Tongue 

 

Do you use any technology to help with mindfulness? If so, what do you use? Any apps?

Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

I actually use sudoku on my phone, calms me right down and I death stare anyone who even remotely tries to distract me.

I also have breath2relax for when I am so worked up and have trouble focusing on my breathing.

Re: [Chat] WTF is Mindfulness?

I love Smiling mind and Headspace

 

I sometimes use http://rainymood.com/ because I can just listen to the awesome rain sounds and that's enough to help me focus on the moment. 

 

Oh and I just set a reminder on my Calendar in the morning that says: " Dude, don't forget mindfulness."
