#MonthOfMindfulness Challenge Day 19 – Developing Mindfulness One Day at a Time

Grounding yourself in a present experience and appreciating life’s sensory richness through a meditation over an object supports mindful growth. Non-judgemental attention to an object allows you use your senses in neutral observation that supports the resetting of the brains automatic reflexes.

Object Meditation

– Choose any ordinary object. It can be a coin, a flower, a leaf, a shell, a stone, etc.

– Systematically explore its features: colour, shape, smell, texture. Notice the smallest of details, the perfection so and imperfections.

– Examine all sides of the object.

– Is it shiny or dull? Does it feel warm or cool? Is it rough or smooth? Are there any blemishes? Does it have a smell?

– Close your eyes and carefully feel the object. Do you notice anything else?

Make a mental note about this #mindfulmoment and congratulate yourself for being in the present.
