The gift of Mindfulness

“The mind thinks involuntarily, just like the heart beats involuntarily”. I heard this at a Ted talk a while ago and I revisit it whenever I feel that my monkey mind is creating stories.

One of the antidotes to the creations of the mind can be found in Mindfulness. The easiest way to move from our active and amazing brains into our wise hearts and bodies.

Mindfulness is available to all of us. We just need to start practicing. It is easy, available and FREE.

No need to make it complicated, start small, start with easy steps such as focusing on your breath 1-2 mins a day. Place your attention to your breath, how does it feel? Warm, cold? Slow, fast?
Breathe 🌬️

Or focus on your senses: vision, smell, hearing, touch and taste – name what you see, smell, hear, touch, taste. Feel your body, perceive it, tune into your sensations.

It might feel awkward and challenging at first, but it gets easier with time, I promise. And if this seems too hard, it is ok, because new practices take time.

Also, if this practice doesn’t suit you and your needs, I bet you already instinctively know what helps you come back to the present moment 🙏🏼 and you just need to put it in practice.

I love taking small daily doses of Mindfulness and I’d love for you to give it a try ❤️
