How our mind reacts to change

  • It complains. It doesn’t like change that it didn’t choose. 
  • It gets angry at others. It blames and might lash out at them. 
  • It looks for comfort, for a return to what you’re used to, what you know, what you’ve always gone to for comfort. 
  • It tries to get control. This can be stressful, trying to control the massively uncontrollable.

Mindfulness And Simple Knowing

Mindfulness is the act of being aware of our present experience in real-time.

Normally people start processing inside their minds what they experience, creating perceptions. At its core, mindfulness puts our attention towards the present moment, with kindness, empathy and interest. This continuous act of being in the present moment with interest is called ‘simple knowing’.

Exercise is a keystone habit

 A change in one life area that brings about positive effects in other area. Exercise it’s not just vanity. What you do in the gym makes you a better, higher-performing person outside of it. When you develop physical fitness, you’re developing life fitness, too.
