Mindfulness is something that when practiced throughout the day, can be beneficial but challenging. We often allow our minds to just wander aimlessly, which causes a disconnect.
To begin to reconnect, inform your brain of your intention. Pay attention to what you feel as you connect to your brain and talk to it as an old friend. This is a form of mindfulness meditation, since you are paying attention inwardly.
Check throughout the day where your mind is at and what it is doing, and if possible, just focus on being in the here and now. Experience everything you are doing in the moment with your senses and your breath. Make sure your breathing is calm and steady. This awareness activates different areas of your brain, making it healthier and more flexible.
Mindfulness has a cumulative effect. Do it regularly and often, and you’ll remember exactly why you went into that room.
