We all tend to live busy lives nowadays. Being in a hurry to get the kids to school, get to work on time while stuck in traffic, both partners working while raising kids and fitting in commitments 6 or possibly 7 days a week. Too many things to do and not enough time to do everything. I have experienced this with my wife often in recent times.
Taking time out for ourselves is difficult but necessary. Mindfulness is a recent buzzword, however it has existed for several centuries . It is a form of meditation where you simply sit in a quiet place, close your eyes and take deep breaths. To guide me through this process, I use an app called simple habits It is designed to focus our minds and get rid of all the unwanted clutter. For many years I have struggled with having an overactive mind and thinking too much.
I have recently started practicing mindfulness and I see the benefits. I have a clear and focused mind and the distracting, negative thoughts are much less frequent. It does make a difference in your outlook on life when you engage in mindfulness for a few minutes a day. It is worth setting aside a small part of your day to do this. You will love life more and have an inner peace which you deserve.
