Four Keys of Living Mindfully
Practices in Attention, Values, Wisdom and an Open Heart
The four key areas of mindfulness support and empower us to be attentive to our thoughts, feelings and the environment with clarity and discernment. They help us to make choices and act in ways that are in alignment with our values and are both healthy and beneficial. When we live mindfully, we cultivate a meaningful life, with inner peace and genuine well-being. We become the person we choose to be.
With deep roots in the ancient wisdom and contemplative cultures, mindfulness is now recognized by modern psychology and science as a proven method to manage stress, improve attention, and acquire emotional and mental balance. Additionally, it provides many health-enhancing benefits, like reducing symptoms of stress and anxiety, relieving physical complaints like headaches, and even enhancing immunity to illness and improved health recovery. Though incredibly important, there is much more to mindfulness than simply learning to be present in the moment. Mindfulness is the ability to be present with clarity and discernment – to be able to experience life (events, people, thoughts and emotions) consciously and respond with wisdom. Ultimately, mindfulness increases one’s ability to have a calm and stable mind that is able to effectively respond in a beneficial way to challenges that arise in life.
