What’s “mindfulness”? What’s it actually mean?
Definition is Knowing what is going on around you but letting go and keeping calm. Reducing stress and panic attacks. Being in tune with your thoughts. All that sort of stuff.
It used to be a mental health technique to get people to make time for themselves/calm down/relax, before it got hijacked by the woke brigade. This used to be called exercise & entertainment.
‘Woke brigade’, amazing… Woke, as in ‘awake, eyes open, conscious’. Does this mean you are asleep, as in ‘unconscious, eyes shut, oblivious’? What a throbber.
make sure you dont set foot on the Oval or bandstand or the GRASS police will get you….
