Therefore awareness, might be the best way to safeguard your behaviour. Any ignorance towards not being aware of your thought process may lead you to act in a manner you never intended.
How to Develop Awareness?
Practising a minute of mindfulness everyday and gradually increasing it to few minutes of practice over the next months may bring fruitful results.
Where can we start?
1. If the Ocean is easily accessible, sit on the beach and watch the surf, synchronising your heartbeat to the surf.
2. Sit on your bed, or under a tree and begin to be aware of your own breath.
A minute initially would be good. You will feel this time easy to focus on, and as you feel comfortable with this time frame, gradually increase this to another minute and another, till it is comfortably done for ten minutes.
Regular practice may eventually expand your ability to focus at increasing time frames.
