It is good for us to take more than a few minutes to break away from everyday life and movies are a good way to do this. I always find it relaxing to cuddle up on the sofa and turn on one of my favourite movies. Today, our mindful focus exercise is just that!
⁃ Seat yourself in a comfortable position with your favourite comfort items.
⁃ Select either a favourite movie or a new one you have been waiting to watch.
⁃ Take two deep, Mindful breaths and turn it on.
⁃ While watching a movie, pay attention to how you get engrossed in the movie.
⁃ Observe closely what emotions does that movie bring out in you and take a note of it.
⁃ Once the movie is over, take a few minutes to reflect on the movie and the emotions.
⁃ End with a few deep mindful breaths and proceed with your day.
