We published a new article on the site Everyday Mindfulness. Here is an excerpt:
"It's a wonderful ride, full of sights, sounds, and engaging activity. The problem is, I sometimes make it without ever noticing what's going on around me. If pressed on the issue, the only evidence I have that the ride took place is the sweat on my brow and the half-empty water bottle clipped to the bike.
I like to say "I forgot to remember." Meaning, in order to be mindful we have to first remember to be mindful. If we don't do that - if we forget to remember - we end up lost in our thoughts and dragged around by our minds."
Go to Everyday Mindfulness to read the rest. And while you're there, visit their forums for great discussion on mindfulness-related topics.
