Finding Happiness In The Moment.

KavDaily’sMindfulnessJourney

Almost everyone can develop Mindfulness. We have a powerful and natural resource promoting well-being, deep within all of us. This faculty, usually remains dormant but can be developed by anyone interested in taking an active role in their own well-being, irrespective of age, background, belief system or previous experience. By becoming aware we are increasingly able to respond to life in more appropriate ways and less subject to reacting purely from the knee jerk of our old habits. The ability to respond instead of reacting, really changes life and enhances our experience of living.

The simple truth is that when we practice Mindfulness on a daily basis, we and by extension others, benefit greatly. Stress levels decrease and the sense of well-being grows. We practice as we go about our daily lives, being aware of what is happening whilst it is happening with a sense of open curiosity and by taking time out to meditate. Both these activities develop our capacity for Mindfulness. Over time this approach becomes a way of being rather than an ‘add on’ that we do.

We become happier and more resilient. Mindfulness is only truly transformative when we bring an attitude of kindness and warmth to the practice. Beneficial change in this way, not only helps ourselves but everyone and everything we come into contact with. Through Mindfulness we develop our natural ability to be fully aware of what is happening as it is happening. We consciously practice being totally present in a friendly, open and curious way; directly engaged with the moment-to-moment flow of life without preference. When we practice living in this way for at least part of the day, every day, real change can be felt and experienced not only for ourselves but affecting those we relate to as well.

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.

-Mother Teresa

The faculty of awareness is just as important as precise, keen, critical thinking for our well-being. We may think we are aware and that it is a regular given; something in our lives that happens anyway, but when we look closely we realize that this is far from the truth. Mostly our thoughts are caught up with the past or the future; we see that our attention is only partly in the present.

Mindfulness allows us to engage fully with our life as we are living it. The benefits of being present to life are immense. Because we are developing an open friendly attitude, compassion for ourselves and others grows. This in turn increases our ability to turn towards and acknowledge the universal, complex and often challenging and even messy business of being human. This results in developing resilience and our capacity to engage with life from the compassionate position of strength, kindness and wisdom. Being in touch in this way, living authentically in the moment, life takes on a different quality – recognizing each moment as having value, that is vivid and rich.

The real meditation is how you live your life

As Always, Rekah.

Hello there! I'm Rekah and I believe in love, sunshine and happiness. I'm inspired to inspire. To help create positive changes in your life, to love more, and to accept that happiness begins with yourself. Life is always better than great and it’s yours, all for you, so show up everyday and make the choice to do what you love most! I believe time shouldn’t be a luxury. Through clear processes, simplified systems and rock-solid support in your business, you can have more time to focus on your zone of genius, family, friends, love and play. I also believe that having a little extra help doesn’t make you any less of a business owner. In fact, that’s where true leadership emerges from. Extra help carves the way to extra time, time that you can spend on scaling your business, widening your impact and to 10x your authority. I am a realistic, relaxed, cheerful and ready to tackle 'all what life has to offer' kind of woman. Always drawn to anything natural; Art, Literature,Culture and Lifestyle. KavDaily is a mix of different feels of life that we often find the need to quench our minds on. I'm always learning, trying, failing, dreaming big, enjoying but not worrying about the small stuff and above everything else, I embrace my imperfections because life's always better when you discover what you're really all about. I am a forward thinker and love creative thinking. I'll definitely be using this blog to organize my thoughts, feelings and views. Do try to keep up! ❤️ Dear potential advertisers, kavdaily accepts advertising from brands or services I love, see a synergy with, or would pay for myself. If you think I make a perfect match, please email me on my contact page or at kavuu.becca@gmail.com
