Something that makes me super happy in working with my coaching clients individually or in groups, is when people are able to identify for themselves the many positive influences and benefits that formal meditation and (less formal) mindfulness practices, bring into their lives.
It’s so exciting when people can see for themselves the many profound changes that they’ve experienced.
1. Able to deal in healthy ways with school and relationship challenges
2. Able to remain more focused and less distracted by worry or anxiety
3. Increased overall social engagement and wellness
4. Emotional intelligence has increased significantly, resulting in much more emotional control and resiliency.
One of the things that I think is so important to keep in mind, and I feel like it’s a niche that my work really occupies, is that frequently people think mindfulness is another item to check off a to do list.
It’s something that can be a seamless part of everything we do enhancing our happiness and appreciation every day of our lives.
There’s only one thing we can control in life and that is our reaction to what’s going on. Mindfulness can help us to drop the catastrophe brain and be happier no matter what.
Wishing smooth sailing to all.
