mindfulLiving the Dream: Mindfulness

The potential of mindfulness to transform the way you work and live your life is immense.
The extent to which you benefit from it is entirely up to you and the effort that you’re put into it.
When discovering how to become more mindful, remember ABC:

awarenessA is for awareness

Becoming more aware of what you’re thinking and doing and what’s going on in your mind.

beingB is for ‘just being’ with your experiences

Avoiding the tendency to respond on auto-pilot and feed problems by creating your own story.

choiceC is for choice

By seeing things as they are, you can choose to respond more wisely and by creating a gap between an experience and your reaction, you can step out of auto-pilot, which opens up a world of new possibilities.
As with all new skills, the more you practise mindfulness, the easier it becomes. Canadian psychologist Donald Hebb coined the phrase ‘neurones that fire together, wire together’. In other words, the more you practise mindfulness, the more you develop the neural pathways in the brain associated with being mindful.
