The mind is a terrible thing to waste. The world has changed at lightning speed over the last two decades. As a result, most of us are living our lives in a frantic blur of incessant emails, social media engagement, text messages as well as an over-abundance of multi-tasking – which leaves our minds in a state of low concentration, high stress and fragmented attention. A perfect scenario for coaching.

Mindfulness can help…

Mindfulness is a simple practice that you can do anywhere. You can incorporate it into your daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion.

Mindfulness promotes happiness and peace and becomes more powerful the more you practice it. It becomes part of you and helps you deal with the stressful situations that life presents with new courage and presence.

Mindful happiness involves the happiness you feel inside of yourself in this moment of time. Period. It does not include whether you were happy yesterday or even a half hour ago. It doesn’t matter if you will be happy tomorrow or in twenty minutes. It has nothing to do with your predisposition to happiness. It is only the happiness that you feel right now at this very second..

Many of us get trapped into wishing for happiness in the future, based on the outcome of events and circumstances over which we have little or no control. I call this “Standby Happiness” and is it not in any way mindful happiness. Through my own life challenges, I created something called Mind Tools to help myself…and now others…bring happiness into their lives.

Through my book ,Lost , Found & Rewired: Mind Tools to Shift You From Stressed and Frazzled to Calm and Vital,  I guide people on how the brain works and how you can get it to work for you.

A spiritual leader once told me to make a list of what makes me happy. Doing this activity inspired me to carefully consider the entire concept.

What would you write on your list?

When I wrote my list years ago, the majority of my list involved making other people in my life happy. (Spending time with my family, volunteering, traveling with my kids). All of that is nice, but once I looked at it I wondered, “Is this what is at the core of what makes me happy? Is my happiness all centered outside of myself?”

In reality, are the people we surround ourselves with responsible for our happiness? Or is happiness more of an inside job?

How do you define happiness?

How often do you feel happy?

Is your happiness contingent on external events or circumstances or people?

I was having a day of anxiety, fear, and feeling not enough, so I read a few chapters of Cynthia’s book, Lost, Found, & Rewired. After a few minutes of reading, I already had a sense of peace just knowing that I can change my state of mind with breath and gratefulness. Funny how we need to be reminded about these simple things.

A fast moving quick read. Once I started I could not put the book down wanting to know what happens next. Dr. Dougherty includes you in her life as she shares her experiences and how to shift your thought processes. It is evident in this book she practices what she preaches and has an attitude of gratitude. There is a sense of calmness and tools on how to deal with the ups and downs of life. A must read – you will not be disappointed.
