Over the last month, we have been finding pockets of time that have allowed us to practice and develop our mindfulness. Maybe you have already discovered that, in our day, there is a lot of waiting. We wait for kettle to boil. We wait for the toaster to toast. We wait at the traffic light. We wait for the train to pass. We get stuck in traffic. We wait for meetings to start. We wait for a delivery. We wait for… I think you get the idea. We spend a lot of our day waiting.
Today, we will be practicing Mindful Waiting.
– When you find yourself with these extra few moments, take the time to be mindful.
– Take 2 or 3 deep mindful breaths.
– Turn your attention to your steady, natural breathing. Allow your shoulders to relax and give yourself a little smile.
– Take the last seconds of this mindful moment to notice the detail of something you haven’t noticed before and then continue with your day.
Remember, just be still for a few moments.
Make a mental note about this #mindfulmoment and congratulate yourself for being in the present.
