What’s all natural, costs nothing, and boosts your well-being?

What’s all natural, costs nothing, and boosts your well-being?


So would you take that pill? 

This is a quote from American psychologist, Jonathan Haidt, author of The Righteous Mind, The Coddling of the American Mind, and The Happiness Hypothesis. 

Knowing that, if meditation came in the form of a pill, would you take it? Surely the answer is obvious: if it was as easy as taking a pill, of course, you would take it! However, meditation does require just a little more effort. But the payback is huge! 

The good news is that mindfulness can be both a form of meditation and a way of living. Mindfulness as a way of living is about being mindful of our thoughts, words, and actions helping us to truly live in the present. As a form of meditation, mindfulness does require training – the practices are simple though not necessarily easy. 

Combining both mindfulness as a meditation practice and as a way of living, can yield a lot of the benefits that Jonathan Haidt outlines above. Making mindful decisions moment to moment day in day out.
