Day 13 & 14 of “Mindful March”
I’m catching up today from yesterday’s #MindfulMarch and combining it with today’s – because some days are like that.
Day 13 – Stop Breathe and just notice. Repeat regularly throughout the day.
Day 14 – Enjoy doing chores or task more mindfully today.
As I write this post, I am on my second batch of laundry, cleaned the bathrooms and cleaned up the kitchen after breakfast. I have to say, I am thankful for all of it.
The laundry, the dirty potty’s and showers, the dishes, cleaning the stove top. I am so blessed. Blessed to have food to cook and yes all of my humans to take care of.
In between the cleaning and cooking, I was still able to take some time light my sage, breathe deeply and enjoy it. Find beauty in the moment, not matter what it consists of.
Day 12 of “Mindful March”
Today was such a beautiful day. It was filled with moments of clouds blanketing the skies, soft rain and moments of down pours. After all of this weather today, Just before sunset, I was able to stand still for a moment and indulge in the coolness of the sky right before sunset.
Whenever you can, just take a moment in your day, just feel it. Feel the cool of a breeze or the warmth of the sun on your face.
Day 10 of “Mindful March”
Slow Down and let spontaneity take over. Sunday’s are the perfect day to have “No Plans” do nothing or do whatever comes naturally. Take time to allow the day to unfold, those are some of the best days ever!
Day 8 of “Mindful March”
“Look Around” and find three things you find unusual or pleasant.
Sometimes the things you find to be pleasant can also be the most unusual.
Day 7 of “Mindful March”
Listen to how you speak to yourself, try and use kind words. Have you noticed the way you speak to the people you love, your friends, your kids?Try to use the same gentle, forgiving and encouraging words with yourself today.
Sometimes we are harder on ourselves than anyone else we deal with. Your assignment for today is to “Speak kindly to yourself”.
Day 5 of “Mindful March”
Appreciate the taste, texture and smell of your food. At one of your meals today or even just a snack “Eat Mindfully”. Take your time to enjoy every bit, every smell, every texture.
I know this comes a few days late but I’ve been taking part in this “Mindful March” practice and I thought I’d share it you.
This calendar comes to you from the lovely people at https://www.actionforhappiness.org
Each month they have a calendar filled with heart felt ideas on how to lead a happier and healthier life.
Each of these mindful actions only take a few minutes each day. Please pass it along to your friends and family. I might even start sending out a daily reminder of these Moments of Mindfulness.
Wishing you all a lovely March.
Peace, Love and Yoga,
