There are three states that our mind goes to when experiencing a situation. Reason mind, sometimes referred to as logic mind, is where we are focused on facts and information. There is no emotion involved. Emotion mind is where we are primarily focused on how we are feeling and experiencing emotions in response to a situation. Wise mind is a balance between reason + emotion mind. This is the most balanced state of mind, where we can consider both facts + emotions when making decisions or responding to a situation.
how to practice Mindfulness
There are many different ways to practice mindfulness. You can practice it within any activity of your choice. You can be mindful while running, eating, playing a game, spending time with friends, driving, or creating art. There are no limits to how you can practice being more mindful and grounded in your life. Mindfulness can help you connect you to the everyday on a deeper level.
When people think of mindfulness, they often associate it with yoga, meditation, and deep breathing. I am including some links to mindfulness meditations on YouTube below, as well as a link for a 30 day free trial of the Calm app. Even if you think "I am not into that," I suggest just giving it a try!
