How You Can Use Mindfulness To Change Your Life

If you are looking to train your mind through Mindfulness, you are probably looking for a change in your life. Mindfulness teaches us that we need to pay attention to the present moment. To be fully present, not letting your mind wander forward or back in time.

Did you know that everyone's mind wanders 47% of the time. I'm not sure who came up with that percentage, but it's an interesting concept. Have you ever stopped to count how many times your thoughts have drifted away from work, exercise, even through the conversation you are having?

Through mindfulness, we learn how to let go of judgments of those wandering thoughts. Judgment and shame is universal, and through mindfulness, we learn how to look at our thoughts with kindness. Shame shuts down the brain and robs the brain of energy needed to change and thrive.

Repeated practice makes mindfulness you more productive, mentally stronger, and healthier. And unbelievably, it helps our brains heal and live longer. Mindfulness changes the way we see ourselves, brings acceptance to our pasts, and allows more calm into our lives.

Dr. Shauna Shapiro, a professor at Santa Clara University, a clinical psychologist, and an internationally recognized expert in mindfulness talks about how she taps in on modern neuroscience and mindfulness to show how mindfulness can help us make positive changes in our lives. The story of how she worked with military veterans to help them overcome shame and move towards healing is especially powerful.
