For today’s ‘Mindful Moment’ have a pen and paper handy.
Take a moment to observe your breath. Is it fast and shallow or slow and heavy? Take a few deep breaths, slowly breathing in for the count of 5, holding for 5 counts and exhaling for 5 counts and holding the breath for the count of 5. Do this 5 times. How are you feeling? Are you feeling more relaxed? Continue to breathe slowly, look around the room you are currently in, now without thinking too much about it, write down or draw everything you see; Objects, colors, little details that generally go unnoticed. Continue to make a list or drawing for 60 seconds. When you’re finished take a close look at the list or drawing. We often go through our day without noticing the everyday objects that surround us. Take a moment to appreciate your surroundings now check in with yourself, how are you feeling? My wish is that you feel calm and centered.
Embrace the moment!
