Whether we are carrying out routine life behaviors, trying to pray, or conversing with others, the way our minds work significantly impacts how well we function. But many times we may feel like our mind has a mind of its own.

Dr. Greg Bottaro explains how mindfulness can help us become aware of the present moment and accept it. Catholic mindfulness is a way to practically trust God more in our lives. Instead of separating faith from day-to-day life, mindfulness helps bridge the gap so we can feel the sense of safety and peace God intends us to have.

I wish I had the time to read this more leisurely than I did (one of the downsides of borrowing from the library; free but you can't keep books forever). I do think this is useful and it helps to actually do the exercises. Bottaro also grounds everything in the Catholic faith so you don't have anything to worry about.
