Busyness has become an epidemic. All the unproductive noise filling your mind and stealing your time is a form of busyness.
This multi-strained virus doesn’t contaminate just your work or chores. It thrives in the things we willingly bring into our lives by obsessively checking our newsfeeds and email, or constantly worrying about something or someone.
Whether you are aware of it or not, busyness has a vice grip on your day and, quite likely, your mind. But you’re not alone.
We are all constantly ingesting bite sized bits of information populating our minds with all-consuming thoughts . . . thoughts that can make us forget to breath.
And yet, we go to bed each night with our phones conveniently located at our side for that final check-in and early morning review. As the day unfolds, busyness can cause us to forget details and completely miss important moments, quickly. We allow ourselves to be on the move. It can add stress to our lives and negatively impacts our health and our reasoning.
Fortunately, we have a powerful tool to combat busyness - Present Awareness.
This Present Awareness provides us clarity. It serves as our compass, our coach, our protector, and our inspiration. By quieting your mind and finding clarity every day, you open doors to wonderful opportunities. You get in tune with your body, your thoughts, and your environment.
This kind of awareness cultivates an environment for positivity, creativity, and good health. It not only stills the busyness of your mind and your day, but is known to reduce stress and anxiety, and improve sleep and cognition.
It requires no trade off. Eliminating busyness doesn’t stymie what you can accomplish, in fact, it makes you more productive.
So quiet down. Snag 15 minutes when you wake up or before you go to bed. Put down your phone and tune in. Let your wonderful, inner intuition bring you, and those around you, wonderful rewards.
