So it's no secret that I believe FULLY in the power of meditation in one's day to day life. Taking 5 simple minutes to close your eyes and breathe can change everything!
One year ago, I embarked on a journey to start practicing mindfulness in my everyday life. Mindfulness is a type of meditation focusing on living each moment fully engaged in the present. Have you ever driven home and realized you don't remember how you got there? (Did I actually stop at that stop sign?) Mindfulness combats our tendency to turn on auto pilot. It forces us to be aware of ourselves and our environment.
By practicing mindfulness every day we create what I like to call a "superpower". You become so aware of yourself that you understand the "signs" of depression, anxiety, stress, or whatever causes negativity in your life. Furthermore, being present in the moment often opens our eyes to the unseen positives surrounding us; we realize that living with an unhealthy mental state can be primarily caused by lack of perspective. Mindfulness opens your eyes.
