I hope that rachmiel doesnt mind if other people use this topic as their own mindfulness journal; it would be a great way to share ideas.
Well, anyway, recently i noticed this:
1) It takes a lot of time to be used to mindfulness and to remember doing it, but thats something that grows. In the begining one may remember to mindful only once in a month for example, but as you read and learn more, as you try to make an effort, you will remember more times...like 2 times in a month, then more, etc. There will be also an increase in the amount of time you are mindful. First you get only for 2 minutes, then 5, etc...At least these days I am mindful at least, lets say, 3 times a week and for at least 15 minutes; today I was mindful 40 minutes. Not bad for a very distracted and lazy guy like me.
2) If I get mindful a few times a day for same days in a row, I will be much more calm, concentrated and with clear mind in general. Even if I am not mindful on a given moment, I still be more calm, etc. There is some scientific research saying that mindfulness meditation will bring more results not only to your emotions (getting calm, lucid, etC) but also in your brain structure. So I suppose that mindfulness while doing daily tasks may bring the same results. For all the purposes, its still "meditation"...
3) When you are mindfull, you live more every moment, and better, because you are right there doing what must be done; all your being is living that moment. I could notice that, for example, today. While I was driving back to home I was very mindfull. Generally, while driving, I am wandering so when I get home I can remember almost anything about my travel. But not today...when I got home today, I was aware that I got home, I could remember my travel, I knew what I did 40 minutes before (40 minutes was the time of my travel and I was mindfull all that time).
