Issue One

Beyond meditation, mindfulness can be practiced anywhere, anytime, especially in the mundane, day-to-day activities that have almost become second nature to us. Instead of being lost in thought, there are benefits to being present in the moment and paying particular attention to the task at hand — aware of how the task is being executed, what physical feelings exist, what smells, and what sounds. We have the opportunity to practice focus by fully and deliberately engaging in any task.

This issue explores the various ways that you can practice mindfulness in activities that are usually automatically processed such as ‘getting out of bed’ or ‘walking’.
