The Importance of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of being in the present. This means that you are aware of yourself and your surroundings, your thoughts, your motives, and your intents, as well as how your words and actions might affect others. It’s the essence of thinking before you speak and/or take an action. Just like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.

Practicing mindfulness is at the heart of everything we do here at The Exceptional Life Institute because we know that it is an essential tool to living a peaceful, happy, and fulfilling life. It’s also why we are committed to teaching others how beneficial it is to make mindfulness a healthy habit that will reap many rewards.

Bringing It All Together

Our founder, Monica Ortiz, has been teaching and helping others use the principles of mindfulness and fundamental life tools for over two decades. After seeing the benefits and successes people were having, she decided to open The Exceptional Life Institute. Her personal mission has always been to make the world a better place for all by teaching people how to understand themselves, better communicate with others, and create healthy community. Yet, even though Monica was teaching her effective self-education courses and seeing clients personally for years, she still felt as though she should be doing more and inspiring more people to learn to help themselves and live their exceptional life.

After much meditation and personal work, Monica realized she must also bring these tools into the digital age which inspired her to create The Exceptional Life Institute online courses and launch the Masters of Mindfulness app. In doing so, our collective goal is not only to feed people with this evolutionary knowledge, but also teach them how to fish with practical life tools that they can use to better their lives, help others, and keep our universe evolving.
