Mindfulnes - it can change your life!



 

 

On Mindfulness

 – Facts & Tools for achieving the life you want.

We all have busy lives and sometimes forget to stop and breathe.  With the practice of mindfulness we can bring many benefits to our emotional and physical health. Introducing mindfulness to our life can give us tools to manage stress and achieve overall wellness. Mindfulness is all about living fully in the present moment, without judgment, and with an attitude of kindness and curiosity. It’s about easy breathing, being aware of what is happening around you, appreciating the moment and then letting it go. You can be mindful anytime, anywhere, no matter what you’re doing. While it sounds simple, it can be tricky to remember to be mindful and to reach a mindfulness state when stressed. Mindfulness may be practiced at all times of the day or night, it is very simple to use and it is just a matter of habit. Practicing consistent mindfulness can bring lasting results.

 

Mindfulness can improve physical and mental health. It may:

- help relieve Stress
- lower Blood Pressure
- improve Sleep
              - help with Depression
- help with Substance Abuse   
- aid in Eating Disorders
- aid in Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

Following are a few simple mindfulness concepts that can help you reduce the effects of stress in your life, to breathe in calm and experience joy in your life.

 

Mindfulness Concepts

o   Visualize your day
o   Live in the here and now – be present
o   Self-Acceptance
o   Be aware of others
o   Meditation
o   Trace your fingers
o   Deep Coherent Breathing
o   Coloring with intention and care
o   Observing your thoughts
o   Forgive – do not hold grudges
o   Take a walk
o   Shower
o   Savor your meal

 

Mindfulness Exercises

o   R.A.I.N*
o   S.T.O.P.**

*R.A.I.N. - In the mindfulness circles the acronym R.A.I.N has floated around to support people in dealing with difficult emotions.

R” is to recognize when a strong emotion is present.
A” is to allow or acknowledge that it is indeed there. 
I” is to investigate and bring self-inquiry to the body, feelings, and mind, and 
N” is to non-identify with what’s there. 

This non-identification is very useful in that it helps to deflate the story and cultivates wise understanding in the recognition that the emotion is just another passing mind state and not a definition of who you are. Just like seeing a movie, standing back and watching the actors play out their dramas, by non-identifying with your story and seeing it as impermanent, this will help assist in loosening your own tight grip of identification. Utilizing R.A.I. N. as a practice can help you bring space to be with things as they are and grow in deeper understanding of what drives, underlies or fuels our fears, anger, and sadness.
Turning into our emotions can feel a bit foreign since most of us live in such a pain denying culture. Isn’t it time to begin acknowledging stress, anxiety or pain rather than suppressing, repressing, or all-too-quickly medicating it? Can we learn to view these challenges as a rite of passage instead of running away from them?

**S.T.O.P. – Once in a while we have to just literally  Stop in our tracks and consider the moment we are in. Clearly see the situation and dissect it to diminish its power over you.   
    S – Stop what you are doing,  put things down for a minute.
    T – Take a breath. Breathe normally and naturally and follow your breath coming in and of your nose. You can even say to yourself “in” as you’re breathing in and “out” as you’re breathing out if that helps with concentration.
    O – Observe your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. You can reflect about what is on your mind and also notice that thoughts are not facts and they are not permanent. If the thought arises that you are inadequate, just notice the thought, let it be, and continue on. Notice any emotions that are there and just name them. Recent research out of UCLA says that just naming your emotions can have a calming effect. Then notice your body. Are you standing or sitting? How is your posture? Any aches and pains.
    P – Proceed with something that will support you in the moment. Whether that is talking to a friend or just rubbing your shoulders.

Observe the above information consistently and you will soon come to realize that by practicing Mindfulness everyday your life will become easier, lighter and more fun. You will develop more tolerance as the “little” things will no longer bother you, you will become kinder towards yourself and others and also notice the beauty that lies around you and become more joyful.

Dear Heart...

That fleeting moment...

& those who love us!  

The end of summer is steadily approaching, especially here in Colorado, since schools will soon be starting up again and our first cold could arrive as soon as September. For me summer holds a special place in my heart. Not only do I enjoy having the kids home from school but I thrive on sunshine and blue skies. Gardening is also one of my passions. This time of year is filled with growing and nurturing time under the sun. Cultivating our own vegetables, fruits and herbs feels good as we get to cook wholesome meals and create natural products for our perusal. There is also another important reason of why summer is so special. Since most of my extended family resides overseas this is tBhe time when we get to travel across the ocean and 
CONNECT WITH OUR LOVED ONES  once again.   
 
 
What a treat this is!
Often we ignore the significance of having someone to talk to, someone to share laughter and sorrow with and someone to be around that just knows us and loves us unconditionally. It does not have to be a blood relative; some of our closest people are strong friendships that withstand the test of time and distance. For me it is both family and childhood friends. I look forward to the silly, hysterical laughing moments and to reminiscing over those instances that have contributed to our strong emotional bond as well as creating new memories. Since a lot of "my people" are not around me throughout the year I cherish those relationships and I often try to fill that empty space with an email, text or phone call. Alas it is not quite enough! Within the last eighteen months I have also lost a few very special people in my life; one after another. It has been a time of inner introspection and painful growth. A period of time that made me stop and re-consider my life. Even though our family has always been very close and the regrets are few if any, you can't help but imagine the things you could have still done together, the hugs you could have exchanged. We assume that our loved ones will be around for a long time or at least till their old age. That the natural flow and order of life will continue. Often though life throws us a curved ball and in an instant everything changes. If we only could have spent more time with them, called more often, laughed heartily and shared more "I love you's" with them.
Truth is
 
 So, as I am once again reminded, I am here to remind you as well to live life to its fullest.
Laugh as much as you can. Spend time with those you love. Get over petty arguments as much as possible and hug those you love often. Cherish friendships; recognize the people in your life that go the extra mile. Be grateful for every little moment you spend with those "special" people in your life.
 
 Many of us rush through life, day by day striving to fit into our daily schedule as much as we can and in the process of being so busy, forgetting to spend time with those we love. Forget to spend time doing things we love. We forget to be human, and forget what our role is.
Have you ever stopped to ask yourself: Why am I here anyway? What is my role and my purpose? Are we meant to live a life filled with anxieties, and insecurities? Or could it be that in our busy schedules we have forgotten where our joy lies? 
 
Let's take a deep breath, and for a moment close our eyes... bring to mind your loved ones, see them smiling at you. Savor and rest in the moment for a while... Breath it in, feel the emotion, get lost in the energetic embrace of those that you cherish and that cherish you. Even those that have crossed over. And when you feel complete, get up and make contact. Meet up, go give those "special" people that are still in this world a hug, pick up the phone, send an email. Remind them how much they mean to you. Open your heart and share the love!  
 
 The list is simple:
  • Close your eyes
  • Breathe easily and fully
  • Visualize your loved ones
  • Give them a hug in your mind's eye
  • Take another breath
  • Open your eyes
  • Make contact and share the love

In the end we all just need to be loved!
