Priusquam disceret scire oportet discat ac dediscat priusquam sciat oportet scire-

Themes, Currents and Trends

What if we told you that practicing mindfulness is important?  More important than running and updating your Facebook status after said run (come on – you know you do it)?!?  Here’s the deal Hot Shot:  Practicing mindfulness IS more important than running, maybe now you are more likely to remember to do it … Before, during and after you run (Runners are easy to agitate so feel free to insert something you enjoy more than running as an example).

Some of you have noticed the trend around here of late.  The trend being that the key to practicing mindfulness is to simply practice focusing your attention onto ONE  (<— Key word) direct sense, and to practice this often, like right now.   Can you feel your right index finger clicking away on your worn out mouse?  There are many ways you can practice mindfulness: While eating at a quaint curbside cafe, walking Fido after dinner, talking to your little ones at the park.  You can practice mindfulness doing just about anything really (the exception is using Instagram of course).

    nothing is more important that updating facebook… except checking it every 10 seconds to see if anyone has liked/commented/shared post… nothing!

    I brag about my kid ALL the time on FB. Although, I don’t feel I can talk about my own running (unless its thru the blog and people actually go there cuz they want to talk/hear/read about running), hers is FAIR GAME in my opinion. And I can’t think of anything I enjoy more than running. NOT.ONE.THING.

    Yes, I’m trying to concentrate on my fingers typing on the keyboard right now. Congratulations.

    I went to lunch with two people and it threw me off because we had to talk. I was trying to be mindful of what I was eating! :)

    I don’t FB my workouts but man to I instagram the heck outta my heart rate monitor pics.

    Being mindful is definitely an art that I have not completely mastered. I am working on it though. :)
