Everyday mindfulness

The phenomenal growth of mindfulness and its impact in our day-to-day lives

Mindfulness teaches us to be more present in the moment, to savour every second of life. Whatever you are doing – making a cup of tea, sitting down to supper – the idea is that you mindfully appreciate each and every moment. This brings with it a sense of calm, ease and wellbeing, as you move beyond the everyday distractions of the mind and the minutae of the day.

Of course, that can be a great challenge when the pace of life is so hectic and your brain is being pulled in so many directions - problems at work, health issues, money worries. Reading a book is a classic example. If you are present and engaged in the story, then it’s possible to become totally immersed in your book. For the busy, chaotic mind, however, it’s equally possible to read the same page five times over and still have no idea what’s going on.

About OM Yoga Magazine

Welcome to the May issue of OM Yoga & Lifestyle magazine. This month, we’ve got a big report looking at all things mindfulness. It’s timely and it’s never been more popular, the mindfulness movement is sweeping the land. And for good reason too: many believe that it offers an antidote to the stress of modern day living and today’s culture of being permanently switched on. For yoga fans, the benefits of mindfulness are nothing new, of course. It’s an intrinsic part of the practice, tuning in to the body, softening and quieting the mind to experience the moment and find the flow. Beauty is all around us if we only take a moment to stop and appreciate it. Start right now. Take a deep breath and pause before you dive into OM. Have a magical month, folks, and I hope to see you on the mat real soon.
