You have been hearing more and more about mindfulness but you aren’t quite ready to make the commitment or investment in an 8-week MBSR class. 60 minutes, NPR, Time Magazine – to name a few sources, are touting the benefits of MBSR. What is MBSR? Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an 8-week course focused on learning to live in the present moment with compassion towards self and others. This course requires a time commitment of 2.5 hours a week along with 30-60 minutes of home practice per day. Yikes! You say, ‘how can I find more time in my day when I am already stretched to the max?’ Perhaps, think about how you spend your day by considering the following questions; (1) How much of the day do you spend worrying about your past or thinking/planning for your future? (2) How many times during the day do you realize, that in conversation, you don’t know what the other person is saying because you drifted off? (3) When you do find moments of quiet – do you fill this time? And if so, what do you fill it with? (4) Do you find yourself worrying about your health, your relationships, your life in general? MBSR is not a quick fix to life’s woes and challenges. Instead, it is a commitment to living life more fully, more richly…one moment at a time.
