Thank you for finding this Blog. In this article, I share how I learned about Mindfulness and how I began integrating it into my life.
Below you'll Find the Full Video
To create a Mindful life, I knew I must become familiar with Mindfulness and learn all that I could. I came to understand that If I studied the theories of Mindfulness, I would understand it, then slowly, I would become more mindful a little bit more every day.
I learnt that Mindfulness and Holistic Health go together. Mindfulness cannot be separated from the idea of Holistic Health which cares for the whole person. In terms of understanding Mindfulness, we will briefly look at Holistic Health and see how it fits together.
What is Holistic Health? The term may conjure up all kinds of otherworldly ideas for you- it did for me! The first thing that came to mind was the practice of alternative medicine, naturopathy, or other Eastern-inspired health trends – and at least I was partly right.
It is essential to point out here that Holistic Health is not a cooky-spooky form of practice; conversely, it is serious science. Mindfulness has proven to be a scientific and intelligent approach to total health and wellbeing.
Mindfulness a Proven Science
Therapeutics for holistic health is scientifically proven to work throughout the world by reputable researchers. Like alternative medicine, Mindfulness focuses on wellness and prevention rather than just treating the problem. In other words, it gets to the 'root' of the cause and assists and heals from the inside out. The holistic approach allows the emotions, body, and mind to find their own equilibrium to heal itself and helps to maintain its health.
Holistic health is about caring for the whole person — providing for your emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs. It's rooted in the understanding of Shalom. The mind-body and spirit affect each other, having a knock-on effect for good health or even sickness that impacts your overall health.
In my mindfulness journey (that I am still on), I learned that all the sum of my mind, body, and emotions are connected. Therefore, they have a bearing upon each other. That is why in my book Nothing Good about Grief- I include a mindfulness experience to help calm and heal the Mind, Body and Soul.
Why I Dived Deeper into Mindfulness
I found that the mindful approach can boost my relationships, mental and physical health. This got me very excited, so I delved deeper into learning more.
Studies show that having close friendships, indeed any good relationship lowers blood pressure, reduces stress levels, and can even improve the chances of surviving cancer. Wow! That got my attention, and now I realised WHY Mindfulness would be so beneficial for me.
Moreover, medical doctors who take a holistic approach to health don't just ask their patients about presenting symptoms. Instead, they ask you about their overall health, lifestyle, and relationships, so they can make personalized recommendations to improve your wellness.
Integrating Mindfulness into my life involved acceptance in the way I became aware of my thoughts and feelings without judging myself. I came to learn that this means that there is no right or wrong way to think or feel in a given moment. When I began to live mindfully, I noticed that I could tune into whatever I was sensing at the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future or overthinking- as I often did.
As I progressed, I found that Mindfulness was so easy to implement. It is low cost, not subject to favourable conditions or location. To live a Mindful life only requires the will to do it, time, and consistency. Despite the ease of implementing Mindfulness, like any new habit, it can be overwhelming for beginners. Where should you start? Should you implement a daily meditation session, mindful eating, mindful exercise, or mindful walking? The answer is you should start small- May you Be Blessed as you begin your Mindfulness journey!
