What is mindfulness? Mindfulness means to look at the world around you with appreciation and gratitude. It is simple. It is living with the knowledge that you are a part of something bigger, something mysterious, and something beautiful. I am just beginning to understand what mindfulness means within my life. For me, it is slowing down and taking my time so I don’t miss out on the beautiful details.
Task: Take a mindful walk
-Go for a walk and try to really see the world around you.
-You don’t need a destination, it’s about taking a journey.
-Try and take notice of things you usually might just walk by.
-While doing this be aware of your breathing, relaxed breathing is slow and steady. It makes the lowest part of your belly gently rise and fall.
