I have created a Mindfulness section in my blog because it is a healthy choice, a conscious decision you (I) make to live a better life. Just like with sports, it requires practice and a bit of discipline; and all it takes is 10 mindful minutes, 10 minutes a day that can make a whole difference on how you go through life. 10 minutes that will improve your well-being, physical health and mental health.
Andy Puddicombe explains it much better than I would, so take a moment to watch this video and be inspired.
If you want to read more mindfulness and have some good tips on how to practice mindfulness, here is a very interesting page.
