Now more than ever we are being encouraged to practice mindfulness. Physicians, psychologists and nutritionists are all encouraging people to take time and be mindful.

Mindfulness simply put is paying full attention, some regard it as being fully present.

There are three major stages to practicing mindfulness:

  1. awareness
  2. attention
  3. attitude

Science has finally caught up with scripture, acknowledging man in his totality, as a physical, spiritual and emotional being.

Mindfulness has been found to benefit us physically, mentally and emotionally.

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (MSG)

May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!
