“Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.”
I’ve been reading a book about Mindfulness and how it might improve our day-to-day life. Supposedly we have to take about 10 minutes every day to meditate. No, it´s not to sit down on the floor with legs crossed, eyes closed and humming back and forth “hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm”.
Besides reading the book, I’ve found the app Headspace. I listened to the first lesson while I was stuck in traffic trying to get home from work. Needn’t to say that I couldn’t concentrate not even one bit.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to spare 10 minutes to do this, since we have to be in a calm silent place. At work, there is no calm and I have little breaks. At home, as you can imagine, there is no silence with a 3 years old kid. I could do it after she went to bed, but I might fall asleep straight away.
So I’m juggling with the idea of trying this, but If I can’t find the time to start, isn’t this doomed right from the beginning?
