Mindful Based Stress Reduction

Well Hello!

Mindful based stress reduction is what I'd like to discuss this day.

How are you doing dear one?

I hope and pray that you are happy today.

The things that stress the human heart the most, besides devastation, are dissatisfaction with body image, health, relationships, and wealth, or lack of. But the real truth about the stress is that it's not one of the categories mentioned above, it's the incessant worry about it. 

Doubt, fear, and worry are fundamental habits of stress.

So, I wanted to give you yet another great way to destress yourself, quiet the mind, find inner peace, and practice it into a permanent habit. I've done a lot of these quieting the mind posts lately and this will be the last one, for a while. Promise! 

Mindfulness is a way of being fully alert and aware of the present moment. It is a way of taking the racing thoughts of the mind into complete presence in the moment that we live, which is called the eternal now.

This exercise is simple but, not necessarily easy because of the momentum of the practiced habit of a fast running mind of fear.

This is how it's done...

Throughout the day, as often as possible, consciously follow your breath in and out, feel your heart beat, and intentionally relax your body. Purposefully pay attention to what you see, what you hear, and what you feel.

That's it! The best part about this is one can bring him/herself out of the mind and into the body, and into the present moment. 

The purpose of this exercise is to interrupt the doubt, fear, and worry of any fear, aka stress, and replace it with the feelings of calm, confidence, safety, and security.

If you have had stressful beliefs and behaviors for a long time then you have lived with chronic stress. The technique given can, and will replace that long term habit if it is persistently practiced into permanence.

If you have had a devastation recently, mindfulness can, and will relieve the strain, if experienced frequently.

This is especially good for focus. It is very difficult to focus when something devastating has happened recently. It's also very difficult to focus when one is afraid of what they think may happen in the future, aka as anxiety.

Remember, practice can, and will make permanent, just as the practiced stressful habits are, and were created. It may not happen over night but don't give up, and you will begin to see results.

Practice is how habits come to be. 

Practice is how one becomes an expert. 

This is ninja mind stuff and if you practice it regularly you'll become a ninja mind. lol

Try it! 

You'll like it!

That's all I gots for you!

Short and sweet!

Straight to the meat!

God bless you dear one!

I have a special prayer in my heart for you that you will have confidence, comfort, joy, and a quiet mind.

I love you!

Speak soon...
