Mindfulness and meditation are highly effective ways of being in the present. Our minds tend to brood about the future or the past. If seen in a larger perspective, all emotional problems are caused by the mind focusing excessively on some aspects of life, thus, missing out on acquiring a holistic perspective. For example, when angry, our focus is on how we are wronged, when worried, it is on how the future may turn out. Mindfulness allows you to relax mentally and experience the present fully, thereby training the mind to take one moment at a time. It heals our mind and body internally and helps us find true inner peace.
I feel so worried I’m extremely sad today I’m very very angry A feeling is equal to some thoughts and a state of mind – is that it though? When you speak of sadness, anger, fear, despair what do you think these emotions really include? A lot of us mistakenly believe that emotions are just about some thoughts and the way one feels. This understanding is hugely incomplete Emotions have a big, big manifestation in the body too. In fact, the body is the seat of emotions.
