The 6 most commonly proclaimed disadvantages of mindfulness you need to consider. And how can you do that.
A lot of people were talking about inconveniences of mindfulness. Some researchers have even argued that consciousness creates false memories. Some are afraid that it will intensify their suffering. Others doubt that you can lose your sense of reality. Or you can even become passive, detached, without action … So what is the reality of full consciousness?
First, a reminder of mindfulness
Most of you know mindfulness. But for the sake of clarity, here’s one brief and simple definition of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ability to stay fully present in the present moment. Being aware means paying close attention to your being and what you are doing at all times. Conscious people are not overwhelmed by mental activities, whether they are worried about the past or anxious about the future.
He benefits of full consciousness they are known. Reduces stress, improves performance. We gain knowledge by observing our own mind. It is a gateway to a more loving and judgmental kindness, through greater attention to our own well-being and that of others.
But there are inconveniences of mindfulness? Well, it all depends on the depth, the duration, and the way you’ve been practicing. Here are the frequently asked questions about the disadvantages of mindfulness, with my personal experiences. Join me and decide if it’s right for you.
Will my conscience intensify my suffering?
There is a great fear in people who are beginning to practice mindfulness: dealing with suffering. “Is it a good idea to take my emotions into account, when they are unbearable?” I can fully understand you. Before I practiced mindfulness, there were times when I felt lonely. Of course, the idea of sitting down and feeling lonely scared me. Believe me, I’d rather find some distractions, such as going out, watching TV, or calling a friend.
So here’s the truth disadvantages of consciousness: suffering must be facedinstead of escaping.
But wait a minute. Do you think you can find one? the distractions of your suffering will solve it in the end? Not really. In my case, after going out or watching TV, I had no choice but to return to my room. And believe me, the feeling of loneliness was more intense than ever. It was because I had it it never disappeared. Instead, it was hidden.
How to do it?
As unbearable as it is, your suffering is real and part of you for now, right? Take the time and courage to understand what is going on inside you. Only then will you be able to take care of yourself. It is a test of self-love. Ask yourself, “Where does this feeling of loneliness, or despair, or humiliation, or anger come from?” Is it deeply rooted in my childhood memory, a previous bad situation, or an unfounded belief?
Consciously faced, our suffering is more likely to be healed. They can even disappear naturally. Why is that? First of all, watching your feelings closely helps you to be fully aware of them. From this understanding, we sometimes discover that those strong feelings (fear, anxiety, anger) are unfounded. Second, by being fully aware of it and moving away from it, we realize that these are common human emotions. Recognizing that not only do you have this feeling, it can be a great relief.
In other words, one of the The disadvantage of mindfulness is that it forces you to face your suffering. But it’s worth it, isn’t it?
Without suffering you cannot grow. Without suffering, you cannot get the peace and joy you deserve. Please do not run away from your suffering. Hug him and love him.
Thich Nhat Hanh
One of the disadvantages of mindfulness is the creation of false, true or false memory?
You may have heard that a study proclaimed that mindfulness meditation increases false memories. “Mindfulness meditation encourages judgments and feelings without judgment. Therefore, participants may show a slightly inaccurate recollection of events in their memories. Is that true?
First of all, it should be noted that in the study mentioned, the participants only went through an induction of consciousness for the study. It was not a very careful practice to be able to show consistent data for this conclusion. In fact, the statement was later disapproved in 2017 by another study. The latter revealed that consciousness, on the other hand, significantly diminishes false memories.
So yes, I assure you, consciousness does not create a false memory!
Okay, but what do you think about losing your sense of reality?
In addition to false memories, another well-known hypothesis is that conscious people can do this they lose their sense of reality! How far does it reflect the truth?
Well, it is true that when viewed from the outside, conscious people sometimes it seems to be detached of the chaos that surrounds them. They seem to stay calm and not get angry easily. They seem to be less interested in money. They don’t want to get lost in a paid job, among other things.
Similarly, in the face of challenges or difficulties, for example, they tend not to argue or get carried away by emotions. It’s like them difficulties avoided or hiding from overwhelming conversations.
Do they lose their sense of reality? Is it one of the drawbacks of mindfulness? Another a good reason to stop practicing mindfulness?
Let’s be honest. I recognize myself in the image of the detached person described above, as a result of years of conscious practice. But am I scared of this new personality? Not at all.
In reality, conscious people do not “seem” to be out of place. They “they are”Detached from the suffering that causes a busy and unsatisfactory life. Being attentive and staying deep in the present moments, they enjoy deep moments of joy and peace. The obstacles of worldly life do not impress them or create suffering in their minds. The reality is still there. But it is another reality of true joy and happiness. It’s hard to grasp meaning until you experience it directly.
Do conscious people experience a “disconnection with others”?
Many people claim that conscious people can experiment changes in personal and social relationships. Emotionally stable, they don’t seem to need others to meet their emotional needs. For example, they do not feel lonely easily. Conscious people seem to prefer silence and solitude to noisy events. So sometimes your circle of friends shrinks.
Is that a bad thing?
It is true that mindfulness practices encourage the connection of oneself with silence and nature. These are the two favorable conditions for being fully present and observing our being. Although conscious people sometimes prefer solitude and silence, they are known to be among the kindest and most reliable partners or friends. Because they are aware, they nurture within them a deep joy of the present moment. They also take genuine care of the well-being of themselves and others.
Is consciousness equal to indifference or inaction?
Equally true, conscious people usually get a ability to untie and overcome the difficulties of everyday life. Because? Because when we stay anchored in the present moment, we get it another perception of reality. For example, when we sit attentively and observe our breathing, we know that we borrow air from trees and other beings and return them at every moment. Therefore, we are not separated from trees or other living things. And the fact of breathing is already a miracle because we know we are alive. What else do we need to be happy? Life’s difficulties may be easier to deal with, through the perspective and distance created by a conscious life.
This mental calm is by no means synonymous with “no action.” Conscious people, on the other hand, act in a timely and wise manner. With a perspective created by an emotional distance, his mind is clear. They can see reality as it is, like a calm lake that beautifully reflects the reality of the trees and the sky. Therefore, the actions are even more effective and impactful.
Will mindfulness take too much effort, motivation, and time?
Undoubtedly, these are the most commonly proclaimed disadvantages of mindfulness. Do you want to be aware once and for all after an 8 week program? Well, then you have to reconsider. In fact, mindfulness is a lifelong practice. Every moment, every day, every month, every year. You can never say, “I’m conscious enough, so I won’t practice anymore.”
So yes, mindfulness brings you serious motivation, I admit. But does it take you longer? Not really. Every day, everyone brushes their teeth, puts on their clothes, has a drink, eats … All these actions can be done consciously or without thinking. As you practice mindfulness, do not spend more time.
A daily meditation session takes you 30 minutes. But it is a time of perfect calm. It is very pleasing if we can really calm our mind and body. It is never an effort. Why an effort, if all you do is enjoy? Looking at a flower intently. Observe a breath from beginning to end. Drink a glass of water with all the feeling of freshness … Mindfulness does not require effort. However, strong determination and diligence are required.
Just try …
So we went through it all inconveniences of mindfulness. Will it intensify my suffering? Creates false memories or detachment reality? What about non-action and passivity? Or will it cost me too much effort?
