Mindfulness in simple words and practice

I’ve consumed a ton of material on mindfulness, including my three favorite books written by a Buddhist, a Neuroscientist, and a journalist.

In my words, mindfulness is just noticing what it’s like to be you in the present moment.  To practice that, set aside a time each day to just observe –  without judgement – what and how you feel.

Of the many benefits, the most immediate is the effect that practicing authenticity with yourself forces you to become less reactive, and more authentic with others.  Set a 5-minute timer and just notice the pattern of incessant, neurotic thoughts.  You’ll feel a difference after very little practice.  So will those around you.
