The Meaning of Mindfulness in Happiness
Has anyone ever told you to take a 'chill pill'? The comment might put most on the defensive. Some might ask, how can we be successful if we waste time stopping to smell the roses? As a society, we tend to be overworked, over-scheduled and overly dependent on our smart devices. We think multitasking and living life as a blur makes us more productive. Stress is glorified and double-booked calendars are the norm. If taking a breath and sitting with our own thoughts is so foreign to us, how then, do we expect to find true fulfillment and make a difference in our pursuits?
Learn how the meaning of mindfulness can be found through intention-setting and standing up to urgency.
