We write a lot about what mindfulness and meditation are, and how to practice.
But why is what matters most. Without understanding that, you'll never do it consistently.
There are many answers, and the scientifically-proven benefits are compelling. The easiest way to explain it, however, is this:
When you practice mindfulness and meditation, you create space.
Space to see what is really happening without the mind telling you what's happening through the inner narrative constantly playing in your head, and the mental constructs it constantly places on top of reality (labels, judgement, feelings, et cetera).
Space to evaluate what is happening without succumbing to "knee-jerk" reactions and conditioned behavior which result in habitual actions and reactions.
Space to change how you respond to everyone and everything around you.
Space, so you can take your life off autopilot.
What are you trying to "cope" with?
Coping doesn't work - addressing the root cause does. We'll show you how.
