So our month of Mindfulness is nearly over with just two days to go. Today it’s about noticing the joy in the simple things of life.
That could be:
The smell of fresh coffee
The smile of a loved one
how the sun glints off the windows
how your body feels in a warm bath
jumping in a puddle like a kid
The sharp taste of a freshly cut lemon
It can be absolutely anything you want at all, just be really aware of the joy you feel. The experience and how that feels in your body and relish in it. There are so many beautiful joyous things that we can open our hearts and eyes to given the chance to truly think and see. So try it and see what you could find joy in today.
Today we are looking at our relationships. One of the most beautiful ways we grow is through our relationships. No matter where we are in our lives the people around us can make a huge difference to how we feel day-to-day. If we are surrounded by good happy souls the chances are we are going to be happy souls ourselves. If we are surrounded by those with low energy then the chances are we will also suffer with that low energy ourselves.
Either way, the people around us make a big difference in our lives. Today we are going to take some time out and really think about the people that make a difference to us. That means spending some time thinking about all the people you love.
Why you love them
What are the qualities you love
How do they show up for you
How do they make you feel
How different would your life be without them
Spend a little time today and just think through all those wonderful souls in your life. And feel the gratitude that they are in your life. And when you have done this, I would suggest quietly in your mind sending them a little note of thank you.
Today’s task is another simple one but one that you’ll feel instant benefits from. Whilst many of us start the day with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy our caffeine hit, we don’t really do it in isolation. Often whilst we are drinking our cuppa we’ll be talking to someone or maybe eating or watching the news. But we rarely do it solely, and enjoy it! Today when you have your tea or coffee, simple drink it in silence and appreciate it.
enjoying the taste
how it feels as it goes down your throat
how it feels in your body
There’s so much more going on with your daily cuppa than you have ever probably appreciated before. And whilst you’re thinking through these thoughts, just enjoy your drink – no pressure, no thoughts of what you have to do – just enjoy your lovely hot cuppa. That’s it! Simple 🙂
Day 4 – Stay fully present whilst drinking your cup of tea or coffee

I like the time to focus on the mantra in my cadence. This was a great way to start the day, connected. Namaste’
Plenty of neutral distractions to calm the mind. I continue to LOVE your Ho’oponopono meditation!
This is wonderful! Very healing and calming at the same time. The mantra really gets you out of your own way and has an amazing effect. Thank you

So beautifully done. The music, the sequencing, the resting at the end, and your lovely voice. Brought me to tears as my heart reviewed all the Beings that I wished to reconcile with. Thank you.

Really appreciate this meditation – I loved learning about the origins of the mantra, the meaning, and being given silent space to practice it. I also loved the closing of the meditation – thank you! I’ll be incorporating this into my daily practice.
