The 2015 New York Mindful Movement Symposium

If there is one thing that you need to improve in your life right now, it is the ability to become mindful of everything that is going on around you. When you practice mindfulness, you will become happier and more content with your life. It was during 2015 new york mindful movement symposium that I learned about the value of mindfulness. I have to say that my attendance during the seminar changed my life for the better.




Nowadays, I feel free and independent. It seems like nothing is holding me back from experiencing pure bliss or true happiness. I want to share this experience with everyone, which is why I am going to share the exciting ways on how you can become mindful. Below are some of the things to consider:


Take It Slow


You can never give attention or focus on things that matter if you are always in a rush. It is the ultimate reason why you must make an effort to slow down. There is no reason to be in a hurry at all times. When you learn to take things slow, you will become more in control of yourself. According to Heather Moday, M.D., “Making time for rest can recharge your ability to deal with commitments, relationships and impact your overall health. This is because your mind and body are intrinsically connected.”


Achieve Peace Of Mind


Get rid of all the adversity and negativity in your life. Do not let negative thoughts prevent you from being mindful. Instead, find a way on how you can quiet your mind from everything that is causing issues or problems. For example, you can try meditation. If possible, it is also best to go out of town for a quick vacation. Lissa Rankin, M.D. says, “If you want to optimize your health, extend your life expectancy, and feel as vital as possible, you need to help your nervous system live in a state of peace.”




Being mindful is not an easy thing to do, especially if you can get easily distracted with all the clutter around you. “Teaching ourselves to calm down and to be more receptive than reactive is a practice made possible through mindfulness techniques,” Lisa Firestone Ph.D. points out. As such, it is significant for you to be committed to reaching the state of mindfulness. The entire journey is going to be difficult, but the end can be highly rewarding.

If you want to take your mindfulness movement to the next level, starting with apps like BetterHelp can be your first step. You can also benefit from social media when it comes to giving constant tips and reminders. With the guidance of trained professionals, you can slowly but surely walk the path to mindfulness.
