"Conscious breathing is my anchor.”

Today's Frequently Asked Friday (FAF) picks up where last Friday's Mindfulness vs. Habit episode left off, exploring the significant role habit plays in mindfulness.

To recap, an acquaintance "thought leader" asserted that he didn't believe in habit; he believed only in mindfulness. In the episode, we described at length how this is dichotomous thinking, and habit and mindfulness coexist brilliantly together. 

In fact, we use our conscientious mind to intentionally craft habits to serve us in a subconscious fashion. 

But there's more to the story when you think about the idea that MINDFULNESS is all-important. Think about breathing. Is every breath you take all day long a mindful one? In fact, the autonomic nervous system regulates breathing, body temperature, metabolism, and more. These are habitual patterns of behavior governed biologically.

The idea here is that one is not more important than the other. There is a beautiful, delicate balance between habit and mindfulness, and each has its place.

Listen in for more on how habit and mindfulness are interwoven, why it doesn't have to be one or the other, and how we gain incredible power when we harness the force of habit.

Enjoy the episode!
