Mindful : June 2013
Build a Regret-Free Life Regrets? We’ve had a few. But which ones will really stick with us? Let’s turn that question around: What can we do differ- ently in our lives right now that will lead to fewer regrets later on? We asked Bronnie Ware, author of The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, about what she took away from her eight years as a palliative care nurse. “My biggest lesson was learning to be gentle with myself and not get caught up in judgments, as we’re all conditioned to do,” she says. See if you can guess the top five regrets most frequently voiced by Ware’s patients included in the list below. (Answers follow.) This is what many said they wished they had done: 1. Traveled more 2. Let myself be happier 3. Worried less about the future 4. Been more ambitious 5. Hadn’t worked so hard 6. Watched less television 7. Had the courage to live a life true to myself 8. Been brave enough to express my feelings 9. Stayed in touch with my friends 10. Obsessed less about my weight ● For our full inter view with Bronnie Ware, go to mindful.org/noregrets In order of most common response, the top regret was 7, followed by 5, 8, 9, and 2. OVERHEARD “This meditation business is potent stuff. Mindfulness meditation has been around for more than 2,500 years, and I’m grateful to have stumbled on it. As a veteran magazine editor who spent 24/7 alert to trends, to the waves that move us, that make masses of us hunger for this and not that, I have no doubt that mind- fulness meditation is an idea whose time has come— again.” Amy Gross, former editor of O Magazine, quoted in The Daily Beast TIME CHECK If you look at the time today, use it as a chance to pause for 30 seconds before resuming what you were doing.
