Here is an elegant four word summary for mindfulness that one of my clients came up with for herself. I think it’s the all-time best definition:
“Doing what I’m doing”.
How often are you actually doing what you’re doing—full body, all senses willingly engaged, present with an attitude of curiosity?
When I’m actually doing what I’m doing, I’m ALIVE. Not bored, not annoyed, not resisting, not waiting for the next shiny bauble to entertain me. When I’m fully engaged with whatever shows up, even boredom, annoyance and impatience become fascinating experiences.
