What did you think of these 100 Days of Mindfulness? How did it go for you? What did you like best? Least?

Yes, I had completed the 100days of mindfulness practices. I feel good about it and I think mediation really support a lot when I in my emotion and it really help me calm down and being aware on myself. I think the best is I did it everyday and even I feel my resistance but I still complete it.

    • I am on Day 6 of the challenge and feeling pretty good. I have been really busy and didn't get to post, but loving this so much! I am so thankful for awareness as am walking, and doing the body scan to help see about my feelings and emotions relating to my overeating. The breaths are really helping me with the mindful eating challenge also. I have so much gratitude!! 
    • Thank you so much Gillian! I really appreciate you!
    • Hi Gillian, I read the article by Grossman and Choi and your comments about some of their findings. Overcoming the current divides is a difficult task as you and all the contributors to this thread acknowledge. I want to add that it is difficult to know how and when to try to bridge the divide and with whom. My wife and I live amidst a community of about 250 condominiums. Lots of us walk or walk with our dogs. I know from trusted neighbors that several other neighbors with whom I interact while walking are Fox News believers. Since they have never uttered a word about their beliefs to me I was shocked. They seem to be hardworking, responsible and friendly. Thus the two identities are not mutually exclusive. My response is to say the Loving Kindness prayer for them mentally after I walk away from an encounter. Plus  I chat just a bit longer so as to show the good feelings I have about their basic worth. That is what I personally can do. I know that is not enough to overcome divisions but it is what is possible for me towards that end. Daniel
    • Thank you Gillian! And a lovely weekend for you too! 🙂  Jolanda
    • For those interested in the capacity for mindfulness to help bridge divides, I just came across this really interesting article: https://theconversation.com/its-not-stress-thats-killing-us-its-hate-maybe-mindfulness-can-help-171335 It explores how theoretically, if we understand mindfulness to be about awareness AND acceptance, it should lead to less intolerance and divisiveness. However, in the research put forth by the writers of this piece, they note that awareness and acceptance are often treated as independent processes, and that: "people who reported greater awareness reported lower acceptance and vice versa." The studies also found that participants who reported greater acceptance were simultaneously reporting less engagement with difficult issues. It seems to me that it is crucial for us to engage in difficult issues if we are going to better understand and overcome them. Another part of this article I connect with is this paragraph: "Acceptance doesn’t mean that we have to passively accept whatever cards we are dealt. It means confronting our discomfort long enough to explore what needs to be changed and being malleable enough to consider vantage points we typically ignore. Reducing stress by avoiding difficult conversations is a short-term solution that only further polarizes perspectives." Anyways, if you have a look at the article and want to share your thoughts, I'd love to hear them.
