Be Mindful


Be Mindful.  We hear it all the time.  It’s supposed to be good for us.  Good for stress reduction, heart health and concentration.  But what the hell does it mean?  It actually can be an oxymoron of sort.  Be Mindful; or Exist with a Full Mind.  Huh?, How is having a full mind supposed to help stress.  Isn’t that what got us into this mess in the first place?  Full mind = stress, correct?

On the contrary, being mindful IS actually beneficial for stress reduction and overall health.  In the simplest of terms it means being present in the moment; paying attention and not worrying about the things that have passed or those that have not occurred.  In the most detailed of terms there are bodily function changes that we’re certain have been captured and analyzed by countless physicians and yogis over the centuries but we’ll not venture down that road for we are mere makers of t-shirts and tanks and preachers of the under appreciated oxymoron that is “Be Mindful”.  And, by the use of the word “preacher” we take no responsibility for bringing religion to the masses but merely attempting to voice what many already know, few appreciate and even less practice and that is that LiFE is NOW…®; and to Be Mindful is to practice just a small piece of this wonderful concept that LiFE exists only in the moment you are in therefore why not be so present in that moment that you get the absolute best out of it?!  By practicing to Be Mindful you’ve taken your attention away from those things that do not exist in the LiFE moment in which you are and focused all of your attention on making that particular moment the best in can be for you and everyone in contact with you.  Be Mindful = Happy.

LiFE as we know it?

“LiFE as we know it” is a phrase that’s been around for years and is sometimes associated with the status of life prior to a significant change.  For example, “life as we know it will forever change once we have a space station on the moon”.  It can also be used to show life at the current time.

But…what if “life as we know it” is not how we want it?  What then?

Our LiFE is NOW… family is suggesting to recognize the moment you are living in presently and enjoy it for what it is; but what if you’re currently unsatisfied with that moment?  What if “life as we know it” isn’t all that great?

LiFE is NOW…remember is your “call to action”.  The moment is upon you and if you’re mindful enough to realize the current situation is unsatisfying then utilize that moment of recognition and turn your energy toward changing the current situation (and most certainly in a law abiding manner).  LiFE is NOW… is not just about the happy moments and capitalizing on them.  It is also a catalyst toward action.  That action, in this case, could be change.  Be mindful that you are unhappy with “life as we know it”  and take action to modify the situation.  A simple change may realize huge results or may lead to a life learning experience.

LiFE is NOW…make a change.
