Being constantly reachable, a world that never sleeps and an everyday life that passes by us in a flash. Life has become so fast that it has become difficult to take time for oneself and to perceive and appreciate the little moments and things. Mindfulness wants to help here.
“You can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf.” - Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of the MBSR method (mindfulness based stress reduction) has put it in a nutshell. Fighting against the passage of time is useless, but you can learn to eliminate stress and take small breaks in your daily life.
When we are mindful, we accept all sensations, thoughts and feelings, whether pleasant or not, as they are. We experience every moment in its full development. We do not judge and we do not classify - we are.
Mindfulness exercises can be easily integrated into everyday life and do not require much time. 5-15 minutes a day can already have a great effect. Whether it is a classical meditation with guidance or small breathing exercises in between, mindfulness has many different forms.
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” - Buddha
