The Messy Meaning of Mindfulness

The word is getting attention.  The meaning of the word is getting attention.  Take Mindful Magazine’s recent response to New York Times’ “The Muddied Meaning of Mindfulness.” I read both articles.  I will admit that my first learning of the two articles came as an email from Mindful Magazine landing in my inbox; I’m [...]

Mindful Dressing…and We’re not Talking about the Turkey

Photo courtesy of411 Top Floor When building and running a successful business helping people increase happiness, mindfulness, and reducing stress one thing has become crystal clear: People want to feel good about themselves and people want others to feel good about them.

Mindful Listening

Through mindfulness I am a better listener.  I don’t mean some kind of Zen-like hear the sounds of waves, the rumbling of my stomach pre-lunch, or what the air feels like against my ears.  I mean listening as in to pay attention to someone or something and different than before; better than before.  I’d add [...]

Mindful Change

Change.  Change is constant yet people resist change.  There are many reasons why people resist change; everything from it’s too different from what is ‘normal’ to being forced to change.

Mindful Eating – You are what you eat

We know a lot about what to eat (fresh fruits and vegetables) and what not to eat (yeah, the whole bag of potato chips).  But what about the how, what, and why of eating mindfully? Combining the how we eat, what we eat, why we eat with mindfulness means that we eat with awareness.  It’s [...]
