It’s hard to ﬁnd anywhere in the world that doesn't empathize with people in distressing situations whether in France, Africa or anywhere else in the world at present. So to be supportive & show that these incidents will never take away our freedom & love of life, we need to take care of ourselves & here are a few ideas that can help you to that, individually.
The idea of a present moment or mindfulness mindset, has been found useful in the treatment of chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. There are many beneﬁts, both mental and physical, from living your life in a mindful manner. Mindfulness is a simple skill that can be learned by anyone & can benefit anyone who uses this technique, especially in these times of uncertainty.
Keeping your mind in the present will also help to avoids two negative emotions: regret and anxiety. So, it has been found that, if your mind is in the past, you’re more likely to feel regret. Therefore you must allow the past the die. There’s no reason to torture yourself especially if it is not your fault & furthermore you can't do anything about the past now.
Anxiety results from worrying about the future. If you’re not thinking about the future, you can’t worry about it. But that doesn't mean you don't have to plan for the future, as well.
There are many amazing things going on around you each day. You’re just too distracted at times, by your thoughts & do not notice and appreciate them.
But by adopting a present moment mindset, it will allow you to live your life to the fullest & enjoy your life more. You can appreciate the little things.

While it’s widely accepted that mindfulness is a positive thing, it’s not quite as easy to ﬁnd a deﬁnition accepted by everyone.
Here are a few deﬁnitions:
• “A mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.” – deﬁnition of “mindfulness,” oxforddictionaries.com
• “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
• “The practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one's thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-tomoment basis.” – Merriam-Webster

Consider a few examples of not maintaining a present moment mindset:
• Sitting in a meeting at work, but thinking about your unpaid bills.
• Spending time at the park with your children, but your mind is focused on work or your weekend plans.
• You’re watching television, but you’re worried about the future or regretting the past.
For our purposes, we’ll deﬁne mindfulness as paying attention to your environment and your current activities. Ideally, most of your day will be spent focused on whatever you’re doing and the things going on around you.
It isn’t possible to do this 100%. It’s important to plan for tomorrow and consider the future, but most of us spend far too much time focusing on anything but the present.
If you spend your time with one eye on your smart phone, one eye on the kids, and a third eye on the TV, you’re not being very mindful. And both your physical health and mental health are suffering because of it. Living in the present moment increases your control over your life. Learn how to harness your attention.
