Hope you had a lovely long weekend. I had a quiet weekend with my family and enjoyed the nice weather. Here’s the new weekly mindfulness workout for you.
One thing you can do to slow down and be mindful is to stop multitasking. This will help you to really focus on what you are doing and doing it with more awareness can improve the quality too. This can be as easy as having your breakfast without being on your phone, and just focussing on your drinking and eating. It can be walking and taking in the view without planning your day in your head. It can be stroking your pet without ruminating or it can be listening to your partner or child, without keeping your eyes on the television or newspaper. So this week try to remind yourself to do one thing at the time, and doing it with all hour attention.
Now this might sound easy, but it might take some practice. And if you only remember it once a day, that is still more than not doing it at all!
Have a good week!
