What's Your Why?

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

You know, there's lots of techniques for

maintaining mindfulness in your life, but

instead of focusing on how to maintain

mindfulness, let's talk about your why.

By staying here connected to your

deepest motivations for continuing with

meditation and mindful living, you're

much more likely to make room for it

in your life and keep up the practice.

You know, we're all busy these days

and we have to prioritize our time.

So it's important to know why mindfulness

matters to you enough to keep it up.

So there's many reasons

why we all keep practicing.

There's improved focus and

productivity, improved mental

wellbeing and emotional intelligence.

There's gaining more inner

calm and less reactivity.

And there's the deep healing

of old patterns and pains

that mindfulness offers.

It also offers the ability to

unlock our potential and live

our lives more deliberately.

There's also the health

benefits too, right?

Improved immune function, stress

reduction, the easing of anxiety and

depression, lowered blood pressure

and even structural changes in

the brain that lead to feelings

of positivity and resilience.

But then there's also, of course,

the fact that mindfulness offers us

the ability to have a, a love affair

with our one wild and precious life.

It allows us to wake up in the midst

of our moments to live them fully, to

feel connected, alive, and fulfilled.

So for me personally, a big part of what

motivates me is that I believe that if

I really want to change the world, if

I really want to be a part of creating

a more kind peaceful and sustainable

world, the best place to start is within.

I cultivate mindfulness and the

qualities that come with it, like

inner peace, compassion, wisdom inner

strength, because I believe that true

sustainable change in this world is

only going to happen from the inside

out, one heart and one mind at a time.

You know, as Gandhi once said,

"We need to be the change that

we want to see in the world."

So I believe I need to

start that change within me.

I believe it's the kindest thing I

can offer the world while I'm here.

So that's me.

What about you?

Just take a moment to ponder why

mindfulness matters to you and why

you'll keep up the practice in your life.

So I'm just going to give you a

little pause here to contemplate.

So perhaps making an intention now

to keep your why front of mind.

Remember it, hold it close.

You know, you might like to write

your reasons down somewhere if

that's really helpful for you.

Um, I want to genuinely thank you for

your practice and your presence here.

And I look forward to being

with you in today's meditation.
