TL;DR

[\’mind-fuh l-nis]

noun

mindfulness is the ability to know what’s happening in your head at any given moment without getting carried away by it.

The act of being mindful is one of the greatest things I have ever learned and it’s so ingrained into the fabric of my being that while i’m healthy I can’t see how it could ever leave. I can’t stress this enough, once you bear witness to the power of the positive feedback loop that a mindfulness practice can bring you’ll be in for a most wonderful ride. That said, like anything worth doing, it takes time and effort but it’s real easy to start.

When I think about the state of human endeavours I can’t help think the world would greatly benefit from having a mindfulness program taught from a young age and sustained throughout our lives as a virtuous necessity. I love this planet and I am inspired to not only plant the seed that mindfulness is good for you but also help you along the way with the goal of making the planet a more affable place.

Now if you’re like “Yes Jubes, I get it, i’m totally with you bro, lets freaking get together and meditate some time”, then let’s do it, get in touch, let’s make it happen, but you’re probably already espousing the positivity of such a practice and if you’re not then you should.

To those that are new to mindfulness, haven’t got a clue where to start, are curious to know more or are too busy to care then watch this space because trust me, it really is a super power.

For those that already want there piqued interest quenching then I recommend Waking Up by Sam Harris. Sam provides an excellent introductory 50 lesson course, which guides you through step by step, and each lesson is only 10 minutes so you can take it as fast or as slow as you like. Sam's course compared to Headspace gave me 2 excellent mental shifts in my approach to mindfulness which ultimately lead to my conclusion that mindfulness is an invaluable life tool for greater well being.
