Being mindful is about being in the present moment. Sometimes we experience tension in our mind-body because we are resistant to life. If we are not happy or don’t approve of our experiences, we can wire ourselves to tension and stress.
Solutions and the ability to learn are not found in stress, but in peace. Being mindful and accepting things 'are as they are', supports us in letting go of what we cannot change, allowing solutions to come to us, and appreciating the moment for all the good it can offer.
