Isn’t it weird how everyone talks about mindfulness, but no one seems to know how to put it to work it in everyday life? And how do you even know that you’re actually doing it?
Many times I found myself staring into space in an attempt to find calm and relax, but no matter how hard I tried, my head swelled up with noise and random thoughts… Instead of enlightenment or clarity, I wound up feeling stupid and inadequate.
Is this what mindfulness really is – another fad when every day we struggle with distraction and overwhelm? I tossed mindfulness out to the waste bin until… One fine day I stumbled upon the book by Dr Ronald Siegel and it was mindfulness as I’ve never seen it before – grounded in the challenges of daily life and practical approach to making it work for you and your way of living.
