I often think of mindfulness as a way to stay present in the moment and be less reactive in difficult situations. But the reality is that mindfulness can also help with big decisions as well. I recently wrote about how my journey into mindful parenting and meditation helped my husband and me make a pretty big decision for our family.
The whole article is over on Kveller.com, and here’s how it starts:
Just over a year ago, I wrote about my ambivalence about having a third child. In that post, I said that we had always wanted a big family, but after having two kids in less than two years, we were exhausted and not so sure. I also said that I hoped we would make a decision by the time our younger daughter turned 2.
We celebrated her 3rd birthday almost two weeks ago.
I think we may have come to a decision last week. Maybe. Probably. I’m pretty sure…
Has mindfulness ever helped you make a big decision, or understand a big situation more clearly?
