What is mindfulness?
I first stumbled across the concept of mindfulness about a decade ago. The idea made perfect sense to me – Enjoy the moment and stop living in the past or the future as you’ll miss out on your life. I read fascinating books, like Eckhart Tolle’s ‘The Power of Now’, which resonated with me. And yet, I still struggled with the negative emotions of regret and worry.
But I kept going, and being a fought through my ‘monkey mind’ and started to practice meditation making it part of my Resilience Toolkit.
