For some people, the phrase “mindful living” brings to mind those individuals who are always “zen,” the sort of people who are always cool, calm and collected regardless of the situation. For others, “mindful living” makes them scoff and think of hippies, hipsters and the woman down the street who has read a few too many self-help books. Whether the people the phrase “mindful living” brings to mind evoke envy or contempt, most people have a mental picture of what “mindful living” looks like. For the majority of people, that picture can be summed up as “not my life.” Mindful living, however, is not just for a specific type of person. Anyone can learn to live mindfully.
