“Mindfulness” is a buzzword we’re hearing a lot about these days. But what is mindfulness, and how can it help your body, your energy level, your productivity and your overall health and happiness? And is mindfulness the same thing as meditation? I train a lot of successful, stressed out, busy lawyers. And when I first bring up the idea of a “mindfulness practice” most of them scoff. “I’m too busy to think about that.” I’ll tell you what I tell them: “Frankly, you’re too busy NOT to.”
Thanks to today’s fast-paced, technology-centric world coupled with sedentary lifestyles, we are bombarded constantly with mental, physical, emotional and physiological stress. These chronic stresses are inhibiting our bodies’ natural self-repair mechanisms that fix broken proteins, kill cancer cells, retard aging and fight infections. We are the most overweight, underactive generation in history, existing on diets of processed foods and suffering from drill sergeant mindsets. We’re walking around underslept and beating up on our adrenal glands.
