Mindfulness

Being mindful is good for you. Training people to experience the present moment and accept rather than react to thoughts and worries that pop into mind helps those with depression and is an effective way to beat drug cravings.  I’m not good at being mindful as I quite enjoy the chatter in my head and the mental lists of stuff I have to do. Walking the very familiar route from Moorhaven to Green Lane and noticing tiny changes, like this new flower of three-nerved sandwort or a mouse-chewed hazelnut, is the closest I come to being mindful.
