Three Obstacles to Mindfulness

What is mindfulness?

Simply put, mindfulness is described as "to live fully in the present moment." In this age of multi-tasking and competing information, this is not so easy to do. So what are some things that take away from being mindful?

1. Multi-tasking: It is hard to be fully present when you are presently doing 20 things at once. Slow down and take it one step at a time.

2. Daydreaming: You cannot be in the present when you are thinking about the future. There is nothing wrong with planning ahead, but when your head's in the clouds it can be hard to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground.

3. Rushing: Even if you are only doing things one at a time, if you do them too fast you aren't really there when you do them. You are too busy thinking about the next big thing.
