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 6 – Eat mindfully, truly appreciate your food

#MindfulMarch Welcome to Day 6

On Day 4 we took the time to truly be present with our coffee or tea. Today we’re going to use that same approach but with our food.  How often have you actually taken the time to truly sit down and enjoy a meal?

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s so easy to just grab something on the go, or even eat whilst doing something else like watching tv and texting. But today, try something a little different!

Switch off the distractions, and be present with your food, take the time to treat it with the reverence it deserves.  Food serves so many purposes for us, as well fuel, it’s used as a treat to mark social events so there’s plenty of opportunities to take a moment to really enjoy it whatever you’re eating.

Take the time today to appreciate:

  • the taste
  • the texture
  • the aroma
  • how it makes you feel

Just enjoy it.

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 🙂
