Mindfulness: As per The Irish Mindfulness Institute
Have you ever noticed that when you are doing quite familiar and repetitive tasks, like driving your car or vacuuming, that your mind is often miles away, thinking about something else? You may be fantasising about going on a vocation, worrying about about some upcoming event, or thinking about any number of things.
In all of these cases you are not focusing on your current experience, and you are not really in touch with the ‘here and now.’ This way of operating is often referred to as automatic pilot mode.
Mindfulness is the opposite of automatic pilot mode. It is about experiencing the world that is firmly in the ‘here and now.’ This mode is referred to as the being mode. It offers a way of freeing oneself from the automatic and unhelpful ways of thinking and responding.
