Mindfulness journaling

Dear Fellow Journalers,

In the past, I have tried to write posts a month or so in advance so that if needed  to I could edit and share. This month, due to the nature of the topic, I am writing “in real time”. I went on my annual retreat this past weekend, and our theme this year is focusing on simplicity.

It really hits home with a lot of people. We are all stressed. Stressed about the political arena, things going on in our state’s, our communities, our homes. More and more people have forgotten how to communicate face to face. The internet has taken over our lives. While the search abilities are wonderful, we get stressed when we can’t e-mail or Facebook chat because we are driving! Or working! Or walking!  We have to schedule our computer time, and that makes us stressed! More and more people complain about how they have lost their focus. They want their lives to be happier, less stressful, more impactful. But even thinking about this is stressful.

The answer, I have come to believe, is to become more attuned to our bodies and our minds. Mindfulness is the current “fad”, although it is a practice of living that has been around for a long time. This month, we will delve into what mindfulness is and isn’t, what the different types of mindfulness are, how to incorporate our journals, what books are of value and if you want, your comments about trying to live a less stressful life – your hints etc.

So, put on your seat belt! We are off on an adventure!
