The truth is - everything in life is better when done mindfully. One can only be intentional when they take the time to think about what’s happening to, for, or with them. After all, processing information requires both time and energy. The more we can think about what we are trying to accomplish, the more we’re at ease with ourselves and our outcomes. Proper processing also consumes less energy overall. Thus, when we’re deliberate with each moment, we can leverage our capacity to learn and trust our abilities to repel the types of stressors that are silently killing humans at an alarming rate these days.
