A lot of people think that they are in full control of their lives. They think that as long as they're making the right amount of money, live in the right part of town or otherwise enjoy the right kind of lifestyle that they are doing pretty well. In fact, a lot of people fully believe that the life that they're living is the best they could hope for.
Of course, this is just part of the picture. The other side involves their daily frustrations, their stress, pressure and the sense that somehow some way they feel stuck. How do you square the two? Well, a lot of people think that the latter is the price you pay to enjoy the former.
Believe it or not you can live life to the fullest. I know you've heard that before but you have to understand that you are giving up a lot to enjoy whatever benefits you're getting. In fact, in the big scheme of things, you probably are giving up way more than you are getting. The return on effort simply is not there.
If you want to live up to your fullest potential with a minimal amount of hassle and stress, listen up it's actually more doable than you think. In fact, you already now know how to do it. It all boils down to practicing mindfulness.
I know mindfulness is very popular in the United States, Western Europe and all points in between. There's a reason for that popularity. It's not just hype. It's not just well renowned authors hawking their latest mindfulness book.
There's a lot more to it than the media spin. The bottom line, if you care to dig deep enough, is that it works. Mindfulness is not mysticism. It is definitely religion. Instead, it works with how your mind already operates.
The problem is most people somehow some way pick up negative mental habits that turn their minds against them. I know that sounds crazy, but that's exactly what’s happening. Instead of letting your mind work for you, you pick up all these habits along the way that make your mind work against you.
This is why it's really important to understand whether you need a mental detox or not. When you detoxify your mind, you unclench your mental muscles and let go of stuff th at ultimately holds you back and drags you down.
