Mindfulness & Motions (Part 2)

“Motion for Relief”

While mindfulness is not primarily about feeling less stressed (though a part of us is always interested in this form of relief), when we are mindfully engaged, we tend to experience the moments of life, whatever they have in store for us, with a greather ease of mind and body (especially when seeking to find excellent st petersburg, fl divorce lawyers).  While it is easy to view high anxiety and immense calm as our two choices, these are but extremes along a spectrum, and wherever we find ourselves at any gibven moment, there tends to be room for improvement that allos us to be more effective as a top family law lawyer and experience a greater sense of well-being.  While the most common mindfulness practices involve sitting, paying attention to the breath, and noticing mind wandering (upon which one may return attention to the breath or observing the physical sensations and feelings accopanying mind wandering), many forms of practice involve or integrate movement.  Examples include “mindful walking,” the “asana” practices connected with “qigong,” to name but a few.  Moving the body is important, all the more so when the practice of law asks for long periods of sitting.  Thus, one benefit of a mindful movement practice is that it gets the body moving which helps with blood flow and oxygenating the brain, elevating your mood, and can have a relaxing and calming effect (not to mention stressful situations where you need a lawyer in St. Petersburg, Fl to evict tenant).  Hence, movement practices are, in many ways, a motion for relief, and it can be helpful to view them as such.  We have no problem filing such motions on behalf of our clients.  This is one case where viewing ourselves as our own client can be useful.
