Get leaner and healthier by doing nothing! Posted on January 22, 2019 | by Robide's Got 5 or 10 minutes? Mindfulness drills like this one can reduce fasting glucose, making fat loss easier. Check out how it works. Mindfulness has become a buzzword, but what does Mindfulness really mean? And why should you care about it? Well, for one thing, it can help you get ripped. What Is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is the act of paying attention to what you’re doing, whatever you’re doing, and nothing else. “Don’t just sit there, do nothing” is an old saying about mindfulness. The hokey definition is “awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.” The Benefits Mindfulness chills you out. It also helps you get “in the zone.” So whether you want to relax at night or maximize your workout by engaging the power of your nervous system, mindfulness helps. Mindfulness has also been shown to lower blood pressure, decrease stress and is now being studied as a way to lower blood sugar. Try This Simple Mindfulness Exercise You don’t have to sit on a lotus flower and say “Om” to practice mindfulness. It’s far more easy than you think! One easy technique is mindful listening. Sit, stand, or lie down. Close your eyes or gaze at one point. Set a timer for 1-10 minutes. Start to notice all the sounds around you, from obvious noises like voices and music, to other ambient sounds like the humming of the fridge or AC, or birds chirping in the distance. Any time you start to feel the itch to check out or your mind starts to wander, bring your attention back to the noises around you. If the asshole voice in your head gets loud, just bring awareness back to the sounds. Stay with it until your timer goes off. It’s that simple, but also that hard. Make mindfulness part of your daily routine. You’ll feel less stressed and improve your overall health.
