What's Your Why?

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness. You know, there's lots of techniques for maintaining mindfulness in your life, but instead of focusing on how to maintain mindfulness, let's talk about your why. By staying here connected to your deepest motivations for continuing with meditation and mindful living, you're much more likely to make room for it in your life and keep up the practice. You know, we're all busy these days and we have to prioritize our time. So it's important to know why mindfulness matters to you enough to keep it up.

So there's many reasons why we all keep practicing. There's improved focus and productivity, improved mental wellbeing and emotional intelligence. There's gaining more inner calm and less reactivity. And there's the deep healing of old patterns and pains that mindfulness offers. It also offers the ability to unlock our potential and live our lives more deliberately.

There's also the health benefits too, right? Improved immune function, stress reduction, the easing of anxiety and depression, lowered blood pressure and even structural changes in the brain that lead to feelings of positivity and resilience. But then there's also, of course, the fact that mindfulness offers us the ability to have a, a love affair with our one wild and precious life. It allows us to wake up in the midst of our moments to live them fully, to feel connected, alive, and fulfilled. So for me personally, a big part of what motivates me is that I believe that if I really want to change the world, if I really want to be a part of creating a more kind peaceful and sustainable world, the best place to start is within. I cultivate mindfulness and the qualities that come with it, like inner peace, compassion, wisdom inner strength, because I believe that true sustainable change in this world is only going to happen from the inside out, one heart and one mind at a time.

You know, as Gandhi once said, "We need to be the change that we want to see in the world." So I believe I need to start that change within me. I believe it's the kindest thing I can offer the world while I'm here. So that's me. What about you? Just take a moment to ponder why mindfulness matters to you and why you'll keep up the practice in your life. So I'm just going to give you a little pause here to contemplate.

So perhaps making an intention now to keep your why front of mind. Remember it, hold it close. You know, you might like to write your reasons down somewhere if that's really helpful for you. Um, I want to genuinely thank you for your practice and your presence here. And I look forward to being with you in today's meditation.
