Hey, there! I’m Gavril, and today I’m going to talk about why I started this mindfulness blog.
In early 2014 my back problems lead me to yoga, but it ended up helping me in a much better way. A deep calming effect experienced during Shavasana sparked my interest in meditation.
It wasn’t long before I started practicing it daily, and it pretty much snowballed from there.
By applying mindfulness in everyday life and observing my thoughts, I was able to see the root of my unhappiness and dissatisfaction with life. Specifically, that all of it was created by negative thought loops playing in my head.
Since then, I’ve been exploring what it means to live a more mindful and meaningful life, and I hope you will join me.
Important update: I initially wrote this post three years ago when I just created this website. Although it still reflects the general direction and vision for this blog, I have written a new, more relevant post. It’s called 3 Life-Changing Reasons Why You Should Meditate and reveals more profound insights into how meditation changed my life and how it can change yours.
Why Start a Mindfulness Blog?
A few years ago, if someone said I would start a mindfulness blog, I would’ve thought they’re crazy or don’t know me that well. But here we are.
So why am I doing this?
I believe that no matter how complicated or stressful our life is, it’s always possible to find peace and clarity, right here and now.
Awareness developed by daily meditation practice can give us the strength to overcome even the hardest challenges in life.
This blog also gives me a chance to reach a lot of people around the world. It’s a perfect opportunity to share my experience and knowledge to help them get started on their own path.
Who Am I Writing for?
Many people could benefit from the information I post here, but I mainly write for those who are very new to mindfulness.
They are interested but don’t know where to start. Or they’ve tried meditation but have trouble with concentration and consistency. They feel like they need more guidance and someone who would point them in the right direction.
I can help them take their first step towards mindfulness: from understanding how it can change their life to learning the best techniques and practices.
How Can You Get More Involved With This Blog?
I want to make this a very interactive website where you not only read but actively participate in the discussion.
I highly encourage you to leave comments on the articles that you found interesting or helpful.
For example, let me know if you didn’t understand the point I was trying to make, and I’ll try to answer you as soon as possible.
What Are My Goals So Far?
My first and primary goal is to write a bunch of useful articles. Hopefully, I will do this with your help by receiving feedback and suggestions.
The second goal is to get to know you, my readers, better. I will say this again, “I highly encourage you to participate by sharing your experiences, asking questions, and even disagreeing from time to time.”
My third goal is to create an e-course. It will help you get started with mindfulness, build your daily meditation practice, and experience life from a new perspective.
Before I wrap this up, I invite you to subscribe and join my community to get exclusive content and stories only shared with my subscribers.
