Mindfulness and Energy levels
Everything is in the mind.
Mindfulness practices will help you feel more energised by reducing stress and promoting focus and clarity.
Mindfulness is the ability to control one’s thoughts, stop them, and direct one’s attention where it is needed most.
It’s the ability to be present anytime and to watch after your addictions so to prevent them from being overwhelming.
Mindfulness means understanding what triggers your pride and what triggers your illusions.

The more you deplete your energy, the more you deplete your container: the first gift you received from the universe.
