Are you mindful or is your mind full? And how do you tell the difference? The mind is a great tool for problem-solving, but it’s not great at settling down and being with what is. Most of the time, the mind is wandering around in the past or the future rather than in the present. That means it’s full of thoughts, stories, and narratives that don’t necessarily have anything to do with what’s actually happening at the moment. In some cases, the mind may be caught up in stories that aren’t even based in reality. Mindfulness can offer respite from a busy mind, though it takes conscious intention and regular practice.
Note; With all the noise surrounding us its difficult to be mindful every minute. Don’t give up. Consider each moment you are mindful of the present moment a victory. Give yourself a pat on the back. With time, you’ll be stringing the mindful moments together.
