We all know by now the many benefits of mindfulness and how it can lower stress, increase happiness and make you an over-all better version of yourself. So why is it that so many people still don’t practice mindfulness on a daily basis? Simple, the rational brain is separate from the habitual brain. Rationally, we get it and know that practicing mindfulness on a regular basis will help in all aspects of our life. However, we are creatures of habit and if we don’t have the proper support systems in place to establish a new habit, odds are we won’t change… even if we know how good it is for us.
