I admire anyone able to "practice mindfulness no matter what one is 
doing." As for me I am only just barely able to practice meditation 
under ideal circumstances of "seclusion".

To be perfectly honest, though, I am always at least a little skeptical 
about those claim to practice mindfulness in "everyday activity" - *if* 
they counterpose that to good, old fashioned meditation "on the cushion" 
in a nice quite place.
