Mindfulness is Meditation

4-24-18-mindfulness

My doctor recommended mindfulness to me several months ago .. and at the time when I asked him what he meant by mindfulness, he told me it is a form of meditation .. but it is to be aware and focus on something specific instead of trying to empty your mind.

In creating this painting today .. doing the water as carefully as I could required a LOT of mindfulness focus from me .. I really enjoy the process as well as the result 🙂

I have been practicing mindfulness for years upon years without knowing it .. lol .. many times it ends up as artwork .. or brownies .. or a clean house .. or music .. or warm/hot rocks in my hand(s) .. but I find it to be incredibly restful without causing sleepiness 🙂

Mindfulness can also be energizing to me .. and I find it incredibly helpful in my daily life .. even more so after swiss cheese memory issues! I cannot manage empty your mind meditation after swiss cheese memory issues .. it puts me to sleep 🙂 without counting sheep!
