Why we must take time for a" Mindfulness State"

“After you hear and listen. First must come desire. Second must come willingness.
Third should come understanding.
Fourth should come progression and with progression will come more understanding.”
Hyrum Yeakley

I like the term "Flow State"

This state of one pointed awareness tends to arise when a person gives his fullest attention to a task that he does for intrinsic reasons—that is, the person does the activity for his own sake, rather than as a means to an end.

The activity takes the person’s undivided attention so the mind is totally absorbed in what he’s doing. When you are in the state of flow, your entire being is immersed in the activity and everything seems to be working together in complete harmony.

the activity and everything seems to be working together in complete harmony.


Your performance level is often at its peak, you achieve an optimum level of clarity and focus, yet you’re not thinking about it. You’re not judging every move, you’re not planning your next move; you’re just letting it unfold.


In flow, your ‘ego’ withdraws, making way for the process to happen, unimpeded— you’re not conscious of inhibitions, hunger, thirst, fatigue, aches or anything outside of the activity. All worries, thoughts and memories seem to melt away.


Time flies, but you’ll be completely unaware of it, as if you’ve stepped outside of it for the moment. You become one with what you’re doing in flow. Studies done on athletes in “the zone” – the state of flow – show their brain waves operate similarly to the brain waves of those in meditation.

Flow is a state of meditation— of mindfulness – that you’re experiencing not while sitting quietly, but while fully and completely absorbed in an activity.


Drawing,doodling,creative writing,sign painting,creating something completely new (a object that never existed before) such as painting ,sculpture.Creating new music,writing music,playing music,observing nature,when completely at ease,..anything that can get the monkey chatter out,the ego than goes and takes a Nap

Michael Posner (psychologist)

Michael I. Posner  born September 12, 1936) is an American psychologist, the editor of numerous cognitive and neuroscience compilations, and an eminent researcher in the field of attention. He is currently an emeritus professor of psychology at the University of Oregon (Department of Psychology, Institute of Cognitive and Decision Sciences), and an adjunct professor at the Weill Medical College in New York (Sackler Institute). A Review of General Psychology survey, published in 2002, ranked Posner as the 56th most cited psychologist of the 20th century.[

Attentional shift


Attentional shift (or shift of attention) occurs when directing attention to a point to increase the efficiency of processing that point and includes inhibition to decrease attentional resources to unwanted or irrelevant inputs.[1][page needed] Shifting of attention is needed to allocate attentional resources to more efficiently process information from a stimulus. Research has shown that when an object or area is attended, processing operates more efficiently.[2][3] Task switching costs occur when performance on a task suffers due to the increased effort added in shifting attention.[1] There are competing theories that attempt to explain why and how attention is shifted as well as how attention is moved through space.-wikipedia
