Happy new week friends,
I look forward to sharing with you Brilliant and Excellent tips for attaining your goals, fulfilling your Purpose and making the world a better place
I sat down and searched my thoughts on today’s article but my mind was quite blank as I have not been mindful to my thoughts and intentions for some days.
What does it mean to be mindful?
Wikipedia defines mindfulness as the process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, which can be developed through the practice of meditation and through other training. It means that for every present action, you are consciously aware of yourself, your intentions, your environmental. Mindfulness is a practice of intentionally paying attention. Paying focus and deliberate attention to a thought or task.
I wrote sometimes last year on the difference in the picture quality of a professional photographer and any other person using the camera. The intention and mindfulness of the act of photography make the quality different. They may use the same camera and take the picture in the same location and same time of the day but you will be able to differentiate between the pictures from a professional photographer and that of someone who’s just taking random pictures.
It is very important to know why you focus and pay attention to certain things at the cost of others. Our underlying intentions behind our behaviors are vital in creating outcomes and consequences results.
We need to learn that intention shapes the nature of the whole action itself. The intention itself strongly influences your moment-by-moment experience and state of mind. Acting with intention allows you to be purposeful, directed, and true to your values and committed to your goals. Acting without intention in the present moment is acting without being mindful, reacting to internal and external cues. It is acting while blindfolded.
What are your intentions for today? How would you like to behave today to act in accordance with your true values, your goals for the future, and your vision of your future self? As you go through the day, take a moment to pause and reflect upon how each behavioral choice that you are making throughout the day is being guided by your intentions. If you notice that you have acted carelessly (i.e., without being mindful), take notice of this and use it as an opportunity to consciously set your desired intention.
Why be mindful?
There are several benefits of being mindful, according to Harvard help guide, Mindfulness can improve emotional and physical well-being. It can dramatically improve a person’s state of mind as well as relieve stress and anxiety.
Because being mindful is an act of being intentional, it is a skill that can be transferred to other areas of life. You can be mindful of your health, the food you eat, your attitude, the way and manner you relate with other people. All of this general contribute to improving the quality of your life.
Every day, you have the power to choose to act with conscious awareness, driven by pure intention or to act in a fog, driven by impulses and reactive to environmental stimuli. Use today as an opportunity to mindfully get in the driver’s seat and deliberately set your course towards your true goals and aspirations.
