Jon Kabat Zinn says this about Mindfulness:

"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non judgmentally."

Hi  – I am Tracy.

I am ready to help you bring calm to your frazzled existence. I know…  you have too much to do in too little time…perhaps you work outside of the home, or you are a stay-at-home mum or… you are studying for those crucial exams. You are probably multi-tasking most of the day. This is  called automatic pilot mode, where you tend to rush from one thing to the next without thinking.

Are you proud of your multitasking?? Where does it get you?

Or maybe you find you have too little to do and you are bored and restless. Your mind goes round and round with wishes and wants, regrets and resentments, oughts and ought nots. Do you beat yourself up for not being better at managing to get the things you desire? This type of thinking is called ruminating, your brain is doing what a cow does when it chews its cud over and over again, without solving a single thing.

I have known all of these behaviours at one time or another in my life. And still do from time to time.

As a recent example, recently I had my daughter and her 18-month old baby here for New Year. Would she go to sleep? No. Did she touch things that she shouldn’t? Yes. The house is strewn with toys and books, I will get to it. As much as I love her, I feel totally whacked, mentally and physically.

First, I was excited to get my first this blog written. Then I intend give myself a gift of some Mindfulness practice. I know that in a short while I  can return to a peaceful and happy frame of mind.

I invite you to do the same.

Within a few short lessons, you too can begin to make some sense of this frantic world we are slaves to…

 

Un Mindfulness starts early – Does your head spin like this?

 

Mindfulness is all about being present in the moment, non-judgmentally.

This is the tool I want to share to help you discover a happier you.

I would appreciate any comments you have. I will respond to everyone.

This is one technique in your Mindfulness toolbox you will appreciate as much as I do. The true beginner is a baby from about one year old onwards. It often ends or is snuffed out by the time a child goes to school. Perhaps not always.

With the practice of Mindfulness, we want to fan those embers of long-lost sense of discovery that was natural to us when we were young and curious.

look at this photo of my granddaughter. The flower we pass by holds a riveting fascination for her. She is trying to understand everything she can see, feel, touch and likely taste. She doesn't hear anyone calling her, she is so focussed.

When we are out and about, we may think there is nothing we haven't seen before. Put your mind to searching something to investigate with Beginner's Mind. I am sure you will successful.

It doesn't have to be a living thing. When I stand at the bus stop these winter months, I look up to spot the highest leaf still clinging to the branch or watch a particular bird singing its heart out. Or the way the stones fit together on the wall over the road and discovering there used to be a door there.

You may find yourself sensing wonder and delight deriving from this new/old way of looking. With luck, this feeling will remain with you and you will try it again and again.

It's not often we can learn from a baby!
