Reconnecting With Life

Last Tuesday I was in a talk about the Millennials. This term refers to people of about 30 years, egocentric, very smart and academically prepared that were born in the era of information and the internet boom.

Tablets, mobile phones, computers, etc. Are tools of identity that keep them dispersed, physically immobile and often lacking in energy and health?

Who has not despaired talking to a son, a partner or a friend who is constantly in “something else”?

Today this sickening tendency of dispersion that leads to frustrations, poor efficiency and health problems also has its cure: I mean Mindfulness!

Mindfulness is a tool that allows one to know oneself to focus in depth on things and free oneself from the conditioning and automatisms with which our mind usually functions, generating stress and pain.

Reconnecting With LifeWhen I talk about this skill in my workshops, I point out that Mindfulness may not be a cure for everything, but surely it can change a person’s attitude, dilute their discomfort and offer new possibilities to reconnect with life and enjoy. With Mindfulness you learn to live around the pain instead of focusing on it continuously.  Your shoulder pain will become a shoulder pain, And may even withdraw into the depths of your consciousness as you focus on your breathing or hear the sounds around you. Mastering that ability of concentration allows the mind to be attentive to what it does at every moment: an object, a task, a conversation, and so on. With which it is trained so that it does not disperse by jumping from one subject to another, from one object to another, as is so often the case.

We have begun to understand that practiced Mindfulness regularly, not only can change the biochemistry of our body, but also structurally modify the brain by improving it. Mattieu Ricard, a Buddhist monk who holds a doctorate in biology, has conducted clinical studies showing these changes and improving well-being in him. You can expand knowledge and studies of what they say are “the happiest man in the world” here.

The practice of “mindfulness” can prevent us from becoming ill and feel unhappy, but also, it is able to redirect our awareness towards the curiosity we felt when we were little. We may feel the wonders of connecting with Nature; a blade of grass …, clouds in the sky …, the sweetness of a fruit … or the importance of surrounding ourselves with loved ones and people who care about our well-being.

In this way you begin to value what is important in life, the delights of “being and being” and you fully connect with the wisdom of experiences, instead of struggling to separate yourself from them.

If we all managed for a few minutes to learn to meditate, we would enrich our life experience and help our body and mind to stay healthy.
