Excerpt from ebook:
First and foremost, I’d like to congratulate you on your decision to enhance your personal growth through mindfulness. Try to keep in mind that this is something you are doing for yourself and your well-being, so it’s important for you to put in the effort and make a commitment to schedule formal times to practice these exercises just as you would other important appointments.
Believe me, I know that sometimes it is easier said than done. It is not uncommon to lose enthusiasm and dedication to a new practice when obstacles arise and daily tasks begin to get in the way; as you continue on it’s important for you to figure out what is working and what’s not so that you can adjust your practice, as needed.
Before beginning mindfulness practices, it is imperative to understand the concept of mindfulness and what the practice of mindfulness can mean for you in your efforts towards personal growth.
Mindfulness practice often embodies eight attitudes and it’s these attitudes below that contribute to the growth and flourishing of your mind, heart and body.
1. Learner’s Mind – Seeing things as a visitor in a foreign land, everything is new and curious.
2. Nonjudgmental – Becoming impartial, without any labels of right or wrong or good or bad. Simply allowing things to be.
3. Acknowledgment – Recognizing things as they are.
4. Settled – Being comfortable in the moment and content where you are.
5. Composed – Being equanimous and in control with compassion and insight.
6. Letting be – Letting things be as they are with no need to change them.
7. Self-reliant – Deciding on your own, from your own experiences, what is true or not.
8. Self-compassionate – Loving yourself as you are with no criticism or self-reproach.
