“WHAT ACTUALLY IS MINDFULNESS?” With Teacher Michael Stavrinides.
Mindfulness is a practice, that helps you to live a happier more fulfilling life, by seeing life with clarity without all the fearful, negative thoughts that the mind can bring. It helps us to see opportunities, instead of drawbacks in daily situations and events.
Being successful is much more about how you live your life.
The way you live your life is usually determined by how you respond to the world.
Your mind creates thoughts, your thoughts create emotions, these emotions create how you feel and respond to people, events, situations and the world around you.
Your mind can be your worst enemy or best friend. Most people feel they have no control over their mind and how they think, but this is NOT TRUE!
Mindfulness LET’S YOU decide what relationship you have with your mind.
You can choose best friend or worst enemy. I CHOOSE BEST FRIEND, What do you choose?
Many people get confused when they hear the word “Mindfulness” and struggle to understand what mindfulness actually is.
There are really 2 parts to mindfulness, we have mindfulness meditation and mindfulness daily practice. Even though they are actually two separate things, they are connected and are very similar.
Basically “mindfulness meditation” is usually thought of as being done for a certain period of time and in a certain way, either while seated or in a precise movement meditation like a “walking meditation” or certain forms of “Yoga”
“Mindfulness daily practice” is usually done 24/7, all day long, 7 days a week.
Both are focused on living in the present moment, and actively monitoring your thoughts.
From my perspective in short, Mindfulness sitting meditation is mainly about training the mind so when you need it to assist you through daily stressful situations, it will assist you, instead of creating more emotional stress. When you need a clear head, you can call on this training and use your daily mindfulness 24/7 practice to create balance and clarity over the situation to not blow it out of proportion.
In more detail “Mindfulness sitting meditation is mainly about training the mind to be able to refocus and be the master of your mind instead of its slave, by training the mind you will at ease whenever you may need to throughout your daily life be able to be better equipped to have clarity and perspective and this assists you to be able to better practice your mindful 24/7 daily practice. That is why I believe it is vitally important to practice both systems at the beginning as they both support and compliment each other.
Mindfulness is a proven technique that can help you restore balance in your personal and business life.
Through practicing Mindfulness, you will create a new way of thinking and dealing with negative thought patterns, by practicing Mindfulness you will become better equipped to calm your mind from negative thoughts and distractions that arise in your mind on a daily bases which cause you stress and anxiety.
By practicing Mindfulness, you will be better at dealing with your emotions by creating a much happier and productive way of thinking which intern helps create balance and harmony in your mind, body, spirit and emotions.
Mindfulness can be applied to a range of conditions, including depression, anxiety, stress, fatigue, or illness.
Practicing mindfulness is proven to promote well-being and improve the quality of your life.
