I was drawn to do a course with Being Mindful because a close friend told me about the difference that mindfulness had made to her life – the difference in perspective it offered that enabled her to manage the everyday irritations and annoyances in a new, less stressful manner.
It offered me a few minutes daily where I felt I had ‘permission’ to leave the busy world behind and do something for my own wellbeing. As I practised I noticed that I was focusing more on the moment and not taking things for granted so much. I slowly evolved a new way of accepting the things that went wrong (usually!)
If you’re considering mindfulness – just do it!
