You don’t have to believe in anything to get the benefits of mindfulness. You just have to think. Considering the benefits are well documented, you would think more people would be doing it. All you have to do is pay attention to the inside of your skull, and then you can feel better. As my father said, “if common sense were common more people would have it.” I’m not going to pretend it fixes everything. Some problems are chemical and should be discussed with a psychiatrist. However, I have seen people from all walks of life use mindfulness and meditation to improve their lives. Controlling where your thoughts go is a force of will, and will is like a muscle. Use it or lose it.
Let’s take a look at the goals of mindfulness. In “How mindfulness changes the emotional life of our brains”, Dr. Davidson illustrates how even a simple short exercise can have an immediate effect on how the brain processes information. The exercise of observing your thoughts without judgment, or as if you were an outsider, gives you the distance to make critical decisions about the thoughts you want to invest emotion in. You can see the lies you have been telling yourself.
I’m an excellent illustration of how taking a moment to observe your thought and ultimately get them under control can improve your well-being overall. The first exercise I found was when an evangelical fundamentalist, which is a group I rarely agree with, pointed out the fact you should never speak to yourself in a way that you wouldn’t speak to someone else. The effects of verbal abuse on people are well known. I had never stopped to think about how much I had abused myself. This was the beginning of my mindfulness journey.
Mrs. Ackerman in, “23 Amazing Health Benefits”, discusses many of the long-term benefits of practicing mindfulness. While under-simplified, this article illustrates how nearly every aspect of life is easier to deal with once you began to work on how you think. The heart of this change comes from increased neuroplasticity. Studies show that people who practice mindfulness are more able to think clearly.
I’m writing this for a college paper, but I intend to publish it in my newsletter. This part is for my fans since I don’t have a reference. If you are interested in looking into mindfulness remember these things. Be mindful of your level of practice. It can be difficult the first few times. Be mindful of your teachers. You are learning to control your thoughts not blindly absorbing theirs. Be mindful of your resources. Feeling better can cause you to become obsessed and no one has the time or money for that.
