Harrison! Hello? Earth to Harrison!!

 Huh? Oh, sorry. Hi, Taylor.

What is wrong with you?

I have a lot going on. I can’t even think straight. I have tons of work, team meetings, practice, I have to tutor my sister and my parents are breathing down my back about stuff. I have 365 texts to go through and I’ve broken so many of my streaks that no one will talk to me.

Harrison, you need to calm down. I’ve never seen you like this.

No kidding. I’ve never felt so stressed in my life.

You need to try that mindfulness stuff they’re always talking about.

 Taylor, I don’t have time!

Harrison is going through exactly what so many students are experiencing – too much to do! As a result, many kids feel overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, depressed or any number of negative feelings. As a result, they often don’t get the sleep, nutrition or regular exercise needed to maintain wellness which just makes matters even worse.

Eating right, exercising and getting plenty of sleep really does help with stress but so does one other very important overlooked strategy: mindfulness.

However, many people, just like Harrison, say they are just too busy to do one more thing. But the irony is, this one more thing can help people be much more effective in handling all the other things they need to do. Mindfulness creates more time because it makes people more efficient and less stressed. Plus, you can practice mindfulness without having to take additional time out of your day. You can practice while doing normal things you are already doing, like eating!

In this post you will learn what mindfulness is and how it can improve many aspects of your life. Plus, you’ll learn simple strategies for pulling mindfulness into your daily routine that, if followed, can help you experience the benefits of mindfulness within just a few weeks!

So let’s get right to the main question, what the heck is it…..

    When someone mentions mindfulness to me, it means being able to manage myself and stay on track in a time of unsettlement. The idea of mindfulness is to me,to be able to manage yourself and make a concious effort to improve your well being.

    When i hear the word mindfulness, i immediately think about what it means to be mindful. To me, being mindful means to be aware, and have an eye open for the actions, people and activity around me.

    When I hear the word mindfulness, I automatically relate it to being conscientious. For instance, being mindful goes hand-in-hand with understanding your surroundings, the people around you, and your own state too. Being mindful is also a matter of being kind, meaning understanding and sympathizing if necessary/applicable.

    When some one says mindfulness I think it means listening to the situation before taking any actions or saying some thing hurtful.
