Mindfulness – what is it?
The idea that we can train our brains and teach ourselves to be happy by being greatful has been on my mind a lot lately. Mindfulness translated from Sanskrit literally means “that which is remembered”. Practicing mindfulness means paying attention regularly and intentionally to your every day. You can develop mindfulness by practicing meditation. Studies show that meditation can also be a great way to change the way you experience life. You can become less stressed, focus better, and have less stress which we KNOW can hugely affect our health is so many ways. Sounds like a win to me!
So when I heard about this book, I thought the idea of a workbook would be interesting to read.

I just started the workbook, but I am loving what I have read so far about how mindfulness works. I have been reading a chapter every night, as I find it is something I like to read in sections and think about during the day. I will keep you updated on if I can follow through on the entire book, but I love the idea and had to share, as its something that would be useful.
