Happiness & Mindfulness
See if paying attention to the nature of the mind early in the morning makes your mind more alert throughout the day. Your thoughts certainly will be more tranquil. The conceptual mind that runs on thinking of good things, bad things, and so forth will get a rest. A little non-conceptuality can provide a much-needed vacation. ~ Dalai Lama
What the Dalai Lama is referring to here is mindfulness, the act of being fully engaged in the present, focused solely on this moment and this moment alone. Mindfulness can provide a greater awareness of who you are and what is truly happening in your life and the first step to true happiness is a thorough understanding of where you truly are on your path.
Here are a couple of pieces on mindfulness and how it can make you happier, enjoy
