March will soon be here, and we would welcome spring with lots of excitement. The most prevailing of all will be thoughts of the wonderful scenery, the beautiful sight of nature splashed before our eyes. This is the best time to improve in our practice of mindfulness. We need to enjoy the spring; we need to enjoy our lives just the way we are, right here and right now.
Mindfulness is purposefully concentrating on the present moment. This sounds easy, but somehow difficult to accomplish. Especially when confronted with some many distracting issues that bugs our minds.
Not to worry, keep all anxiety out and focus intentionally on your actions each day. I will provide some tips to help you relax, meditate and keep all stress away throughout the month of March.
How to Practice Mindfulness
The practice of mindfulness is inherent in all of us, lying dormant within, waiting to be tapped and expounded. Always focus on what you are thinking at every moment, when you can control your thoughts, then your emotions and feelings can be put in check as well. So, the key to mastering mindfulness lies in you mastering the thoughts you allow every moment.
Keep a check on your thoughts; try to always keep it on present activities. If you are walking down a path, focus your thought on that activity only. Enjoy your walk by capturing the breathtaking events around, and then you will realize what you have been missing out on all along.
