Most people rarely find mindfulness an interesting subject when life is all good and rosy to them. But once you’ve got your life turned upside down, you start seeking for answers. Even if you found the root cause of your fall and the road to rebuilding, you’ll find that a moment of mindfulness in your life will help you stay on your course.
When it comes to mindfulness, there’s really no words that could relate the experience unless you’re practicing it in your own life. You can read as many books on mindfulness as you wished, meditate or join mindfulness community but if you don’t attempt to bring mindfulness into your daily life, it’s not going to change anything.
