The key to mindfulness is not being in the present every moment of the day. That is not possible and not appropriate for a successful life; you do need some time to reflect in order to improve and prepare for the future. The key is being able to refocus yourself in the present at your will and not at the will of your meandering thoughts.
Refocusing without judgement is a positive mindful activity.
Today, we will refocus using a reminder, Colour Meditation.
– Choose a colour and decide to notice that colour during the day. Take the time to notice the objects and people wearing that colour.
– Have your noticed something or someone you have never noticed before? How many different things are you noticing? (I always surprise myself when I buy a new car and all of a sudden you notice that car EVERYWHERE!)
Make a mental note about this #mindfulmoment and congratulate yourself for being in the present.
