How often do you take the time to be mindful?
Life sometimes feels insanely busy. We rush around from place to place, crossing things off of our list. We live in a perpetual state of planning, what tasks do we have accomplish for work, what should we make for supper; what do we have to get done this weekend. In the midst of busyness, we end up missing out on the beauty of the moment. We forget to be present; we forget to be mindful.
Mindfulness is defined in the dictionary as, “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.”

Choosing to engage in mindfulness, will allow you to let go of worry and stress by focusing on what’s happening in this particular moment. It will also help you sleep better and live a more satisfied life.
Next time you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, try to sit quietly, breathe deeply, be aware of what’s happening with you mentally and physically and let those things go, let them flow away from you without judgement. Be in the moment. Appreciate the gift that life is at this point. You are a blessing to others, and you are blessed. Try to remember that you deserve good things too.
