Be mindful

Many a time, I knock my head against something hard and suffer some degree of pain. This happens very often because I am not mindful most of the time.
I am also not very observant. That explains why I can't recall the layout of things in the kitchen and whenever my wife asks me to fetch her something I have to look high and low for it.
Being mindful is really what a good Buddhist should practise. You can practise mindfulness by being aware of what is happening around you. Besides you should also be aware of every move that you make. For example, when you step your right foot forward you should know that you do so and so on.

Let us practise mindfulness to prevent getting hurt, Buddhists or not.
