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.

I noticed that one of two things may happen: either dream looks too big, or steps to achieve it look too small. Like nothing at all. I’ve experienced over-doing. I think the most noticeable, at least for me, it shows in working out. Everything hurts the next day. But I’ve learned the secret...
