Feel it!

Day 12 of “Mindful March”
from https://www.actionforhappiness.org/

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.

Before you Reply


Day 11 of “Mindful March”

When someone is speaking, take a full breath before you reply.

Have you ever had a conversation with someone where you can clearly see that that have already formed their reply before you’re done with your sentence?

Be mindful. Let them speak, take a full breath prior to forming your reply. It makes a huge difference in the overall conversation and the vibration that conversation carries.

Listen to a Piece of Music

Day 9 of “Mindful March”

from https://www.actionforhappiness.org/

Without doing anything else, sit back, close your eyes and “Listen to a piece of music“.

I’ve attached a song by James Hood entitled Tapestry. This song has so many rhythmic textures and layers, sit back and enjoy these next 4 minutes.

That’s it, today’s assignment is just to listen.

 

“James Hood is renowned as a vital and versatile musical pioneer. His lengthy and varied musical resume includes playing drums in The Pretenders, an ongoing two-decades-plus run as mastermind of the visionary ambient/electronica act Moodswings and an expansive array of production and soundtrack projects.” – https://www.jameshood.com/
