Mindfulness is one of the easiest models, of behaviour to adopt, being useful both inside therapy sessions and helpfully, in your life generally. When you are living life, as we often do, on autopilot – moving from one task to the next, without any great thought (mindlessly), we start to preempt our next task, meeting, meal or whatever.
Living our life like a machine, that starts automatically, means we fail to ‘be here’ with the current job in hand, and this can mean we fail to give our full attention to our kids, our partners, our colleagues, our food, our work, or play.
It is widely reported that our ‘mind-chatter’ or ‘monkey mind’ is the result of anything between 60-80 thousand thoughts passing through our minds, every single day! It is also reported that we only use 1% of our available brain! By living life in the ‘here and now’ mindfully, we can rapidly increase this percentage of brain power to 2% – a 100% improvement!
By living mindfully you will ‘see’ opportunities in all aspects of your life. Whereas before, you will have missed so much. You will be more creative, you will enjoy food more and enjoy play more. Relationships will be ‘real’ and understood; performance at work is improved.
There you are, in the meeting room recalling how the last meeting went, worrying about what you have just left at the desk and the work that’s not being done while you are at another bloody meeting, and likely as not, thinking about domestic matters too! So does that leave you ready to embrace this meeting and really try to get some value out of it?
