Positive Experiences Are Best Registered in the Brain through Conscious Attention

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? In fact, many of the avenues we will take on our journey toward making mindfulness a habit are strikingly similar to those Drs. Hanson and Mendius endorse in their workshop. Their research affirms that mindfulness offers us wonderful ways to befriend our brains and retrain our minds to attract and accept increased joy, peace, health, and relaxation.

It is a loving and practical choice to choose mindfulness because:

  • Mindfulness adds value and meaning to life.

  • Mindfulness helps you inhabit your life, thereby engaging and enjoying it more fully.

  • Mindfulness calms your spirit, quiets your mind, and opens your heart.

  • Mindfulness helps you feel you are on the right path—that you are doing life well and being who you are meant to be.

  • Mindfulness brings out the best in you.

  • Mindfulness relaxes your body.

  • Mindfulness retrains your brain.

  • Mindfulness enhances appreciation and gratitude.

  • Mindfulness helps you break unhealthy habits.

  • Mindfulness invites balance and harmony.

  • Mindfulness enhances humor.

  • Mindfulness minimizes scatteredness.

  • Mindfulness helps you love yourself and others more deeply and freely.
