There are very few things we all know we should do but don't. Yet despite the rising popularity of mindfulness practice, many of us still struggle to find the time and/or a technique that works for us to access this meditative state.
In this episode, Pete describes his personal struggles with practising mindfulness - the art of reflection and management of personal energy and provides a simple tool (Priming) to shift from mindlessness (running on auto-pilot) to mindfulness. Having achieved a regular mindfulness practice habit, Pete outlines five benefits to practising mindfulness on a regular basis and how these can result in a full body transformation:
1) Strength training for the mind - increasing awareness & maximising attention & focus.
2) Boosting willpower & combatting information overload.
3) Boosting immune function
4) Supporting healthy gene expression ('epigenetics')
5) Connecting to the universe (outside-self).
