Paying attention to the downright fucking obvious. This usually manifests as paying for a therapist to tell you that if you fart you might need to shit soon. Can only be counteracted by a whack over the head with a plank and a tattoo reading, 'GET A FUCKING GRIP.'
I've been practising mindfulness. It's been very helpful. I haven't been arrested once since I started getting dressed before going to drop the children at school.

Feb 27 Word of the Day
From STEM, an abbreviation short for "Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics", a STEMlord is a pejorative term for a particular kind of person who has studied in these areas at university or works in these fields who holds a pretentious, condescending attitude to anyone who has studied in any other fields, particularly the Arts and Humanities. They typically believe themselves to be more "intelligent" and "rational", while generally remaining incredibly ignorant outside of their areas of expertise and having the charisma of a rotting pig's backside.
"Ugh, I wish Reddit wasn't full of STEMlords the entire goddamn time."

Popular ideas of Mindfulness:
1. Meditation watered-down to one ultra-simple practice: noticing what your mind is thinking, without judging the thoughts. Similar to stream of consciousness, but at least paying attention to the idea that "My mind is thinking this."
2. Doing things undistractedly; paying attention to what we are doing.

Traditional Buddhist definition:
3. Part of our mind which holds and remembers the meditation object, or enables us to remember things. It also helps to overcome distraction. If we are very forgetful or get distracted easily, then we need to strengthen this kind of mindfulness. In traditional Buddhist meditation, one focuses on a feeling or concept, and tries to hold the attention on this feeling or concept with mindfulness.
1. Today, I kept following my thoughts instead of letting them go. My mindfulness meditation wasn't working.
2. I took out the trash without thinking of anything except the trash can rolling on the uneven ground.

3. I was meditating on love, but my mindfulness was weak, so I started thinking about pizza.
