Investing in Yourself

Part 1: Mindfulness


We spoke in a previous blog about how mindfulness can sometimes be the key when it comes to achieving your goals. What exactly is mindfulness? Everyone talks about it, but what actually is it?

According to ReachOut, mindfulness is "paying attention to the present moment." Practicing mindfulness can not only help you deal with everyday life and tough times, it can also help you with your concentration, help you relax and help you be more productive.

What some people struggle to understand is that we all have the capacity to be mindful. It's not simply a relaxation technique or a 'power of positive thinking,' it is being in the present moment and separating yourself from the clutter in your mind. It makes it possible for us to respond to situations rather than reacting to situations, thus improving our decision making.   

There are many benefits to mindfulness. These benefits range from improving our well-being, our physical health and also our mental health.

There is more than one way that you can practice being mindful. Many people prefer to practice mindful meditation, however if this doesn't work for you, try going for a walk outside. Many of us when we go for a walk tend to stare at our feet and the ground ahead of us. Instead, start looking up and pay attention to your surroundings. 

It's true what they say, the more you practice the more quickly you will see results. So begin investing in yourself. Start small and begin taking 10 minutes out of your day to practice being mindful and stick with it. We live in a busy world where we are always on high alert, so blocking everything out is going to be a struggle at first. The goal isn't to have a totally 'blank' mind. Your goal is to concentrate on what is around you and when you're thoughts do begin to wander, being able to guide them back to that concentration state.
