Mindfulness

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.
