Mindfulness – Being in the present

By September 4, 2012 Weight Loss No Comments

Mindfulness, being in the present is an instant antidote to delusion and negative emotion. It involves clear comprehension of whatever is taking place- total immersion- a lot of people feel this when they are playing music, sport, practicing yoga or being amongst nature.

Science advocates establishing mindfulness in day-to-day life. It’s increasingly being employed in psychology to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions. Improvements in mental health are associated with changes in gray matter concentration in brain regions involved in learning and memory processes, emotion regulation, self-referential processing, and perspective taking. Mindfulness increases gamma waves, which are linked to that eureka moment. If you an extra dose of creative insight might help your performance it might be time to get in the present a few times each day.

Notice things. Play. Humour and passion are great ways to be mindful, they’re easy and are so good for you. Enjoy what you’re doing. Taste what you’re eating.
