Introducing 'Mindful Life': Uniting Meditators Across Steem - All Welcome! - Plus Steem Bounty

in mindfulness •  last month

We live busy and complicated lives. For many of us, a mindful practice helps us deal with the stress and anxiety of the modern world. It increases our health by supporting immune function, lowering inflammation at a cellular level, helps with pain management, increases positive emotions and happiness, lowers depression and helps manage anxiety, increases social connection and emotional intelligence, increases compassion and empathy, helps with loneliness, helps you be more in control of addictions and emotions such as anger or grief, and completely changes your brain in incredible ways. It even boosts your productivity, which might seem counter-intuitive as you are sitting doing nothing, but it enables you to be more focussed and attentive. If you have always wanted to meditate, and need the inspiration, today is the day to start.

Because of all of the incredible health benefits of meditation and mindful practices, Natural Medicine always hoped to included meditators in this collective. Now, we're doing it in a way that hopefully you'll love.

Goals of 'Mindful Life'

  • To unite meditators across the Steem blockchain so that we can share and strengthen our own practices
  • To provide a space to discuss the philosophy, science and practical application of such practices in our lives
  • To inspire and motivate each other
  • To provide support if we might be struggling, connecting with like minded people who might offer solutions

Support for Members

  • By bringing this space into an already established group (@naturalmedicine) of over 700 followers, we are in the position to support your posts about living a mindful life by resteeming well produced posts and upvoting them. Currently, our vote is quite healthy and growing!
  • We will be publishing a curation post every Monday, curated by @tryseke who began the #mindfulmonday tag on Steemit. We are offering SBI rewards for the best post each week!
  • We hope to increase engagement through post promotion in Discord - see below.

  • @bewithbreath, @tryseke and @porters are our moderators for this channel (all experienced and passionate meditators), and they'll make you feel welcome when you arrive.
  • Delegate, drop your introduction in the 'introduce yourself' section for Natural Medicine, and your blog link in 'Meditator Blog Links' so we can find people and follow them easily.
  • Feel free to use 'mindful post promo' to promote your posts. Unlike the grand 'natural medicine' post promo, it's not compulsory to comment or upvote, BUT we do expect you don't always drop and run, but spend time interacting and commenting on each other's posts.
  • Feel free to drop the links of others in the channel, and invite others to this group.
  • @bewithbreath, who inspired @riverflows to create this group, is planning to run group meditations in the Meditation Hall - watch this space!
  • Feel free to use any of the footers under 'mindful life graphics' under your blog. There's also a gif you might enjoy!

Thank You @naturalmedicine 🙏🏼
And look forward to connecting with you all at “Mindful Life”.
Buddha was once asked what has he gained from meditation. He said “nothing”, but he lost “anger, anxiety, fear of death and old age, cravings for sensual pleasure....”. He was silent on what he gained apparently because when we loose our sufferings what’s left is a natural state of joy & bliss. Let’s grow together in wisdom through meditation 🧘🏼‍♂️🧘🏼‍♀️

I am so happy to see this place come to Steem and more importantly through Natural Medicine!
It is through the mindful life when I had picked up my Vipassana meditation practice that I found more meaning in life and am happy to have the opportunity to be able to connect with more like minded folks coming together to support, inspire and share!
Thanks so much for creating this Mindful Life community!

It’s important to understand that #naturalmedicine is about more than just replacing pharmaceutical medicines with natural/herbal medicines.

#naturalmedicine is about the individual taking personal responsibility for their health & wellbeing; it is about understanding what their authentic natural state of being is.

Meditation, contemplation, mindfulness, unminding... this is a hugely important tool in how one understands the Self and what one really needs.

This is a really awesome and important venture.
😊🙏🏽💜☯️

Perfect timing, it seems, since I started running out of ideas and almost gave up on finding a way to 'fix' myself. Two years of psychiatrists, psychologists and other therapists have had no result at all. Don't worry, I do know why - because it has to start with ME. Time to take responsibility myself, instead of making it other people's responsibility.
I'll definitely be following up

Delighted to see this new NM project unfolding!! So nice to see new members stepping up and shouldering responsibility. RESTEEMED.

Woohoo! I am excited to see the beginning stages of this project and to witness its growth under the guidance of several well established people. Looking forward to being a part of this:)

@naturalmedicine, Mindfulness is needed to avoid unnecessary thoughts and to get clarity. And meditation and silent Self Introspection sessions can really prove effective for sure. Keep encouraging healthy and awaking stuff team.
