Have you ever thought about how the moments you spend getting ready may impact your day?
Consider it for a moment...
If you get ready in a rush, your day may feel hurried, pressed, like there aren't enough hours in the day. You may feel flustered and, possibly, complete tasks anxiously. Maybe you push yourself harder than usual to make up for the feeling of lost time and, in doing so, put yourself through unnecessary stress.
I lived my life this way for many years. Bouncing from place to place, task to task and never really pausing to live in the moment. My days were high-stress and emotionally charged. It was only when I was introduced to the concept of mindfulness (and creating a mindfulness practice) that I began to slow down and actually appreciate the many tiny moments that make up my days, and ultimately my life.
Mindfulness is a simple notion. To move through the world being aware of the space around you, how you affect space and others. By being mindful and creating a mindfulness practice we can better understand and support ourselves and become better equipped to face the challenges brought on by everyday life.
In this #GetReadyWithMe video, I'm sharing my daily mindfulness practice. These are the simple steps that prepare me to seize the day and move through life confidently and centered.
How do you practice mindfulness?
