The key to mindfulness is acceptance. Letting go of things we can’t control and not whining, whinging, moaning, complaining or dwelling on upsets in our lives. Choosing not to waste energy getting stressed and upset with the reality of life. Not allowing those things to take up the mental space and, not getting rid of the thoughts, but allowing the thoughts not to control you.
We need to remember that mindfulness is a way of life and not a one time, fix all activity. Thus, the development of mindfulness takes time. By taking a few moments to complete easy mindful tasks each day, you are supporting your own mindful practice and help yourself to reduce stress and anxiety.
Join me for a #MonthOfMindfulness. Each day , there is a new blog entry with an easy mindful task to complete for the day. Most will only take a few minutes.
Each day you can share your experiences with the task through comments this blog, on Facebook via https://www.facebook.com/educationsvoice/ or via Twitter @Ed_Tmprince using #MonthOfMindfulness .
