Mindful March – Day 30 – Notice the joy in the simple things

We are nearly there!

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.

Just one more day to go… make today count!

Mindful March – Day 23 – Think about all the people you love

Day 23 of Mindful March

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.

Think about:

  • 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: Think about all the people you love

Mindful March – Day 4 – Stay fully present whilst drinking your coffee

Welcome to Day 4

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.

Think about:

  • enjoying the taste
  • the warmth
  • the flavor
  • the aroma
  • 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
