We react according to a number of automatisms that we have established. We think that spontaneity is a value, but for it to exist, we need preparation first, if not, we only have automatisms. I am increasingly convinced of the power that comes from training our mind.

Mario Alonso Puig is an institution in the self-help sector. His new book immerses us in the mindfulness world.
Underneath a solid scientific base, he speaks about possibilities, opportunities and proposals, not about beliefs or dogmas. “We must pay attention to see things as they are.”
The mindfulness practice makes us realize how our mental projections modify our perception of reality. Mindfulness can help us improve our health, fight stress, anxiety, depression and boost our creativity. It is the capability of being fully present.
