As an often over-analytical person radiating tons of excess energy as I flit from task, activity, thought and stimulation, the introduction of mindfulness has served to bring me back to purpose, hold me to commitments and allowed me to enjoy living in the moments of life. It’s a habit I wish I’d started practicing right from childhood in early developmental days. So this is my way of sharing that advice to enable mindfulness at scale.
