Being mindful benefits the body, the mind and the soul

Being mindful benefits the body, the mind and the soul

If you were ever told as a child to be mindful, you may not realize just how important that advice was. Mindfulness—routed in the concept of simply being aware—benefits the body in innumerable ways. More than that, it also calms the mind and has proven to be a real stress reliever.

I know, it’s time to change—but where do I start?

I know, it’s time to change—but where do I start?

We’ve all had—or soon will have—that sudden event that causes deep personal reflection. “What is the point?” you ask yourself. “I just wanted a bit of happiness but what I turned into was an overly busy, not terribly mindful, hurry-up-we’re-going-to-be-late kind of person I never intended to be.”

You know you need to change, but where do you begin? In my latest blog post, I take you down what I call the Road to Clarity. It’s a journey that can be tough but I think you’ll agree, it can also be hugely rewarding.

When do you know it’s time for change?

So often, I hear people complain about the situations they find themselves in. While there are certainly situations we do not bring on ourselves, for the most part, we are the captains of our own ships.

Pay attention to your intentions

Did you set your New Year’s resolutions? If so, are you still on track to achieve them or have you already tucked them away in the back of the bedroom closet, as many people do every year?

There are lots of reasons people are unable to keep their resolutions. Maybe they are too busy and forget. Maybe the resolutions just aren’t that important. Maybe they are afraid of failing. Maybe they are happy with the way things are.

Status quo is simply not an option! Change is going to happen whether you like it or not. Read my latest blog post, Pay Attention to Your Intentions, to find out how you can influence that change.
