While in Australia, actress Bianca King is trying to be positive amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and she is able to do this by practicing mindfulness.
King shared with fans a quote from meditation expert James Baraz, defining mindfulness as “simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different…” as seen on her Instagram page yesterday, Sept. 12. The actress can also be seen sitting in a beach while facing the sea.
“[Mindfulness is] enjoying the pleasant without holding on to when it changes (which it will); being in the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it wont),” her quote further stated.
“Might be a tall order to ask for – to not wish things were different,” she said. “Life [is] challenging enough but add a pandemic and you’ve got compounded difficulties in daily life. By practicing mindfulness, we are able to process our emotions and thoughts better. And have a healthy dose of optimism – that not everything lasts (only plastic).”
