Mindfulness Living In A Busy World
How much attention do you pay every time you move your body? Eat food? Look at or respond to people? Before you speak to others but most importantly to yourself?
Did you eat lunch at your desk today? Or maybe on your way to your next appointment? Maybe you ate dinner in front of the TV last night or had a snack while you scrolled through your social media feed?
Today I want to share a little mindfulness practise I do of;
1. Paying attention
2. Having purpose throughout my day
3. Not judging
5. Totally being in the present moment
I am forever on the go with life’s many demands however we must make time throughout our day to become a lot more in tune and conscious about the experience of eating, moving our body and just being.
Mindfulness is one of the easiest techniques we can try out, as it's more of a mindset that we can practice anytime and anywhere. Practicing "mindfulness" means we are actively paying attention to the moment you're in right now.
You too can choose a mantra that has meaning for you. Find a place where you can sit quietly, undisturbed with your eyes closed, and repeat your mantra for a period of about 20 minutes, twice a day.
The idea of this mindfulness mantra is to reach a place of "restful" or "concentrated" alertness, which enables you to let negative thoughts and distractions pass by you without upsetting your calm and balance.
These tools are easy to guide your family and our girls love spending some quiet time just being in the present moment.
I hope you try to incorporate these little mindful acts within your day as they help me manage a busy household of seven and my dynamic online business.
“Be happy in the moment, that's enough.”
