I am mindful, centred, peaceful, patient and calm
Thought for the week: Mindfulness
It’s hard to live in the moment if we worry about what others might be thinking of us. Self-consciousness sets up a dual thinking process, so instead of listening to the other person or concentrating on what we want or need to say, we are also wondering how we are coming across.
By practising mindfulness to be ourselves and to be present, we will not only overcome any self-conscious fears or worries about the opinions others may have of us, but we will become more relaxed and engaged.
Mindfulness helps us to face our self-conscious fears
