Morning Mindfulness - Two Positive Minutes to Start Your Day

This podcast is about mindfulness. No, no, no, not about just sitting and doing nothing and emptying your mind. That is not mindfulness, that would be mindlessness. But we are talking about mindfulness. It is about being in the moment. It is about paying attention. It is about nonjudgmental attitude. It is about awareness. It is about making wiser decisions.

Stress is normal. It is a part of our life. This is how we live, move, function. This is how we exist. We cannot get rid of stress in life.
 

 

What people feel and refer to as “stress” is some kind of a unbalanced forces. When I teach my stress management course I don’t teach to get rid of stress. You cannot.

When we are relaxing, on the bed, in the chair, on the beach, in the spa, on the massage table, wherever, and we feel sooooo relaxed, the air we are breathing is pushing on us with the pressure 14.7 psi. That is over 2000 lbs. per square foot. Now, calculate the square footage of your own body, and you will get the number of pounds pressing on our body 24/7 all your life. We all get that, and we all are OK with that. 

 

Why are we not complaining?

As Goethe said, “A man sees in the World what he carries in his heart”.

One of the principles I teach in my classes is the principle of the Mirror. Just imagine yourself standing inside a big round room, and all walls of this room are covered with mirrors. And you are standing in the center. What do you see in those mirrors? Yep, you see thousands of your own reflections.

When I started practicing Yoga in 1983, one of the advices I was given was to start and finish my day with a glass of water. Not juice, definitely not soda. A glass of clean pure drinking water. Since then I have been following this advice for over 30 years. Yes, drinking glass of water is the first thing I do after waking up and the last thing I do before going to bed.

There’s a phenomenon known as Compound effect. I read in the book called the Slight Edge that compound effect is a result of doing small, tiny things, every day, or is a result of not doing small things every day.

Slow down, my friend. Look around. What you do today may or may not change the whole World. But the simple act of kindness can change the World for somebody.

 

Think about it for a few seconds.

What makes a day a good day or a bad day? That’s simple. We do.

 

As my teacher told me, “What’s wrong with the present moment if we don’t think about it?”

When you wake up in the morning and look outside, do you see the same picture? Do you hear the same sounds? It is possible, if you window is just 3 feet away from a brick wall, and is completely sound proof. 

 

It is also possible if you built an imaginary wall around yourself, and you simply don’t see the surrounding World. Because I don’t believe it is possible to have two identical days, or even two identical seconds. Clouds will be different. Birds will be different. Flies, butterflies, bugs, crickets will all be different. My friends, every moment is unique, unless you are staring at the imaginary wall around yourself.
