Living on Purpose Through Mindfulness
Mindfulness is the practice of being purposefully aware of ourselves and being fully present. When we practice mindfulness we become fully attentive to where we are, what we are doing, and how we are feeling in the moment. Mindfulness is a way of developing deliberate consciousness. Practicing mindfulness brings many benefits including an improvement in mental focus and memory, reduced stress, emotional calm, and healthier interpersonal relationship.
Metta (the cultivation of benevolence).
Begin your practice by cultivating benevolence towards yourself. Focus your intention –
May I be happy
May I be well
May I be safe
May I be peaceful
May I be of service
Now turn benevolence to your loved ones
