One of my sons did some research for a class on the topic of mindfulness. He shared some of what he learned with us and I found it interesting. Mindfulness has been on my mind...
Today I had the impression that I need to be mindful of what I am thinking about, especially noting when I have anxious/worry thoughts. I should write down what they are and when I have them, and do it for no other reason than to discover how often they occur. Kind of like the exercise of recording what and when you eat before starting a new diet.
Once I get a better picture of what is going on in my head it will be appropriate to analyze what I discover and find patterns, if any. My guess is that I have these thoughts much more than I realize and mindfulness techniques will help me focus on more positive thoughts. But who knows...maybe it's not as bad as I think! Guess I'll have to do this and find out...
Meanwhile, here is a link to some basic information about mindfulness-
