Use the analytical part of our mind to observe whatever arises

Because it is not possible to spend the day in meditative concentration − we are busy people − we need a method which we can use in our daily lives. In essence, we need to remain mindful, whatever we are doing, and use the analytical part of our mind to observe whatever arises, and then, at the end of each day, we should ask ourselves, “What have I done today?”.

Even if we can only develop mindfulness for some part of each day or some activities, it will make our lives meaningful.
