I am giving mindfulness a go - over the last few days - as I have been getting a bit fed up with myself. At least I think it is what is known as "mindfulness", but I dare say it is my version of it. What is it about your mental processes in daily life that makes you fed up with yourself? What steps do you take to improve matters? One of mine is not feeling physically comfortable. Minor stuff, like when doing washing up being concerned that wet hands are a nuisance. Solution 1: let the worst happen. The fridge door handle will be wet if I open it without drying my hands. So what? Solution 2: calmly deal with the problem by using a towel. Now notice how those two solutions are almost contradictory. The first is a "so what?" attitude. The second is a "sort it" one. If one is not careful, one can go into a tizz debating which option to go for, letting in all that goddam thinking and not being in the moment. I believe the trick is to just choose one quickly - easier to do once routines have been established - and then whichever one has been chosen, be satisfied with it. Another is feeling that I can't relax as there is vaguely something I should be doing . Again there are two conflicting solutions I have found - 1) get on with doing whatever I like 2) sort it! I find that if I adopt one attitude or the other for a chunk of the day I can enjoy being in that mode. A third issue is worrying about what others think of me in some respect. I found the solution to this problem some time ago. I just remind myself that I am who I am and I like it... and there will always be an opportunity in the future to get on better with anyone whose opinion, (perhaps one that I am merely assuming anyway) of me bothers me.
