I often find myself telling participants in my programs that if you are finding practicing mindfulness difficult, you are on the right track.
This comes very clearly when participants express the challenge of not only finding time to practice mindfulness, but, also the inevitable challenges of completing a practice. For example, there can seem like never-ending thoughts. They could be about anything e.g. “I don’t have time for this”; “There is something more important to do”.
It is when we come up against the challenges of practice that our landscape of our mind and body will start to appear.
This is a good thing. We then have a chance to examine and reflect on these patterns. What shows up in the practice may also be showing up in our own lives.Add a comment
