Being mindful sounds insanely complicated. So much so that it begins to feel overwhelming when you think about bringing into your life.
The first time I heard it, I remembering thinking of how “busy” I was and how I couldn’t make time for this on my to-do list. But I eventually made the time for it in my daily routines.
We all have similar routines for maintenance; showering, brushing our hair, brushing our teeth, eating, et cetera.
Use these moments to concentrate and think only about how you impact yourself, others, and the world at large.
Take in the smell of your body care products, the sensation of brushing your hair, the feeling from your tounge on your teeth after you brushed them, the sound of water running, the fullness after you eat, and any other feeling you experience.
It’s all happening to you and around you; so you might as well take it all in and pay attention to your body’s response.
Mindfulness develops from taking fractions of a moment, acknowledging them, and remembering those tuned in feelings throughout your day.
Unplug to connect and just breathe.
Today’s a new day.
