Mindfulness

2 years, 2 months ago

Without looking it up, how many of you know what it actually means?
If so, do you try to stay mindful of the world around you, and go with the flow of your present moment?
What are things you do to stay mindful in your busy lives?
Please give me your ideas on ways to remember mindfulness.

“If so, do you try to stay mindful of the world around you, and go with the flow of your present moment?”

Do or do not, there is no try.
There is not just one flow, at any given moment there are many flows to choose from.

“What are things you do to stay mindful in your busy lives?”

Being mindful. Being mindful is a direct option, not the result of some other action.

“Please give me your ideas on ways to remember mindfulness.”

Just pay attention.

As someone with a personality disorder, I am working on mindfulness, and it can be a struggle. I was just trying to get an idea of what other people think about it and how they stay involved in life and experiences, not just on a superficial level.

Being “mindful” is pretty simple. Be present, aware, participating, and cut around the bullshit.

@breezymae, It’s more easy for me to realize when I am not being mindful; I feel off-balance, literally like I’m leaning forward. I know that my own hyperactivity leads me slowly back into the outer nonsense of everyday living, even when I have meditated rather recently. It helps me to take a second to just breathe with eyes close, return attention to my own body, and basically recollect myself every once in a while. It takes practice at first, especially if you have to ride out some of the mustang-kicks of a “personality disorder,” but returning to your body on a regular basis will come more and more naturally. Hope that makes some sense or helps in any way.

@mentaltraveller, Thank you. It’s been a slow working process. I like how you said you even feel off-balance. I will keep that in mind and pay attention to my “balance” as well.
