How Mindfulness Improves Our Life

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going to

talk about all the different ways

that mindfulness can enhance our life.

Now, when we think of mindfulness, we

often think of attuning more to the

present moment, attuning more to our

life, sensitizing ourselves to our life.

And well, in the early stages of

thinking about that, we tend to

primarily think about sensitizing

ourselves to the good things in life.

The joy, the pleasures that we

were unaware of, the sight of

flowers on the sidewalk that we

might've typically just passed by.

Or even good moments of, of

celebrating something that happened

to us that typically we just pass

through and go to the next thing.

However, mindfulness has

sensitized me to my life, but that

includes the bad and the good.

And I want to speak to the benefits

of both, because sometimes we, we

recognize like, Oh, mindfulness may

sensitize me to the bad in my life

and I don't know if I'm up for that.

Well, from the perspective of feeling

happy, I, I do appreciate being

sensitized to the good in my life.

It's definitely brought more, more joy

to me and excitement and love and all

the things that I typically passed by.

I'm more appreciative of, I'm able

to linger there and enjoy those

moments that I wasn't able to before.

But from the perspective of developing

things like empathy and compassion

and understanding, I actually

most appreciate mindfulness for

sensitizing me to the bad in my life.

The things that are uncomfortable that

I might've tried to avoid, the world

conversations or the pains in the

world that I might typically go, ah,

I don't want to pay attention to that.

By leaning into that with presence

and curiosity, something in me

has expanded, my heart has opened.

And it allowed it, for me, it's allowed

me to be a more useful human being in

the world, to have more empathy, to

have more compassion and to actually

feel more connected to my fellow humans

and fellow beings on this planet.

So I believe mindfulness nourishes

the many dimensions of who we are,

and sometimes it might attune us to

things that are uncomfortable, but

that doesn't necessarily mean it's bad.

That gives us the opportunity to,

to open something else within us,

to expand our heart, to deepen our

empathy and to deepen our compassion.

And that itself is a beautiful thing.

So thanks for walking the journey.

Thanks for your practice.

And let's settle in

for today's meditation.
