We are all exposed to challenges in our everyday life, that are more difficult to handle than others.
Sometimes we just do not have the perfect answer or solution to a problem and the frustration of this we have to deal with and accept.
These challenges may be disease, conflict or a life crisis and are all normal parts of life. All the psychological defenses like rationalizations, denials and suppressions that we use to deal with these challenges are anchored in the body and preventing us from living to our fullest.
But even though a challenge may seem impossible to meet, we can choose to meet it in a different way and use it as a lesson for dealing with similar situations ahead of us.
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness and acceptance of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment.
