I hope you got a few more things done with last week’s workout! It certainly helped me to move from holiday mode to getting ready for school mode 🙂
This week it’s back to basic. Mindfulness is practicing being more aware in the here and now, and that means you have to practice it as usually we forget to focus on being in the here and now. As usualy we are always thinking about loads of things. About what happened yesterday, or what didn’t happen. About tomorrow, next week, or next year. And that takes us away from what is happening right here in front of you. Which is sad as we only live each moment only once, so you might want to be there before it’s passed again 😉
So this week try to train yourself to give more attention to the here and now. This might not make you happy straight away, sometimes the best thing it does, is just giving your mind and heart a break from the sad and bad things happening in your life. Even so, it can help you to cope better with what is going on.
Have a great week, don’t forget colouring is on this Sunday again,
and the Crochet workshop and 8-week mindfulness start in February!
