for everyday life
When life becomes stressful, most of us tend to get caught up in patterns of negative thoughts and become disconnected with our lives as they unfold. Research shows that this habit of mind wandering or “mindlessness” is a direct cause of unhappiness underlying depression and anxiety. The good news is that the practice of mindfulness, engaging with present moment awareness, can improve mood and attention, and lead to a happier, more balanced life.
For most people, mindfulness seems like a good idea in theory but impossible to practice. Some common misconceptions about mindfulness make it difficult for people to access and apply to their daily lives. This is unfortunate as everyone can experience the benefits of mindful awareness if practiced in a way that is accessible and relevant to each person’s situation.
