How Mindfulness Protects You as You Get Older – Infographic
We hear a lot about mindfulness and meditation in today’s modern world. But as we live with a plethora of devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets. It seems like we’re always connected through various social media platforms even when we’re on the move! And as we grow older, connections become more and more important and this modern technology can facilitate that. However, the issue with this constant connectivity is that it can be difficult to switch off. The infographic below will help explain how mindfulness protects us as we get older.
Mindfulness is a skill
Mindfulness is a skill that sometimes requires us to really work at it in order to become “good” at it. Being connected to one’s inner thoughts can have excellent benefits. One of the best is that it allows us to be more in tune with ourselves and to live in the moment.
Be Conscious of Your Mindfulness
As we grow older, being active is also as important as being conscious of our mindfulness. Being active and out and about not only helps our bodies in terms of health but it also brings our world in tune with everything we do. Going for a swift walk can be done in conjunction with mindfulness. It is a great way for us to take time to look around, live in the moment and experience comprehensive gratitude for the world around us. As they say, time to “smell the roses”.
