Why mindfulness and meditation?
We all deal with struggles every day:
> A lack of focus
> Endless worry
> Sleep issues
> And on and on...
But, we fail to understand that the root cause is our compulsive minds.
We are immersed in a never-ending stream of thoughts and emotions, and our attention is constantly hijacked by them.
We try to cope in different ways:
- We acquire material things.
- We change jobs.
- We end one relationship and start another.
- We go to therapy.
- We drink or self-medicate.
- We take vacations.
- We bury ourselves in work, games, and other distractions.
No matter what we do, however, we can't escape our minds.
There's no healthy way to suppress thoughts and emotions. Burying them under motivational platitudes doesn't work. And, it's impossible to force yourself to "think positive" on a consistent basis.
The good news is, while you can't escape your mind, you can change your relationship with it. Mindfulness and meditation help you do just that.
You learn to understand your mind's compulsive nature. You stop indulging the stories playing in your head. And, you distance yourself from an inner narrative that comments on and judges everything (including yourself).
Or, you can accept the status quo - going through your day on autopilot, held hostage by the next thought, emotion, or urge that pops into your head.
This mental noise weighs you down with worry, fear, self-doubt, and regret. It leads to struggles with stress, anxiety, and depression.
Accepting the status quo means we continue to suffer, whether in relationships, at work or school, in our health and well-being, or with the experience of everyday life.
But, it doesn't have to be this way.
