It’s no secret that we value gratitude. That practice is so intricately connected to mindfulness — having been called one of the “sisters of mindfulness” — that we can’t talk about one without the other.
The benefits of mindfulness are well-documented. Mindfulness shows promise for helping occasional anxious feelings and low mood, and it can help you stay focused on what matters most. When the world feels heavy and overwhelming, mindfulness grounds you and offers a much-needed connection. It’s simple — and free. What’s not to love?
Read on to learn about why we believe mindfulness matters, and why we chose to formulate our Fantastic Fungi Mindful Mushroom Drops.
American medical professor and renowned mindfulness researcher Jon Kabat-Zinn, who founded mindfulness-based stress reduction, has defined it as “the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.”
You can define mindfulness in any way that works for your life. The goal is to live in the moment. You avoid drifting your focus to the past or future and simply observe what’s happening to you and around you.
Mindfulness is deeply woven into the life’s work of Louie Schwartzberg. From the Fantastic Fungi film and the new Gratitude Revealed film, to his Wonder & Awe podcast and Moving Art series on Netflix, Louie’s time-lapse photography and contemplative interviews encourage us to stay present and connect with nature and one another. If you’re new to mindfulness or find it hard to disconnect and slow down, start by watching Louie’s films and shorter time-lapse videos.
Mindfulness can be a formal meditation practice, or it can be a mindset or habit you cultivate throughout the day. There’s no wrong way to be more mindful, and you can experiment until you find one that works for what you need right now.
