We are delighted to present this ”Chocolate Meditation”
It comes from one of the best websites around on mindfulness called Frantic World.com .
Dr Danny Penman has kindly granted us permission to use it and we think is the perfect way to talk about the idea of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is about observation without criticism; being compassionate with yourself. When unhappiness or stress hover overhead, rather than taking it all personally, you learn to treat them as if they were black clouds in the sky, and to observe them with friendly curiosity as they drift past. In essence, mindfulness allows you to catch negative thought patterns before they tip you into a downward spiral. It begins the process of putting you back in control of your life.
