It’s nearly the end of term 2!!
My Crochet on Wednesday is finished but I will be running a Mindfulness workshop for Porirua Active Families on the Wednesday instead and I’m looking forward to it!
This week’s challenge is to get some formal mindfulness practice in your daily schedule. Use your phone to set a timer for every day of the week and practice your mindful breathing for 3 minutes.
Just bring all your attention to your breathing, following your breathing as you breathe in, and as you breathe out. Is there a spot where you can feel your breathing the most?
Can you feel the cold air going in, and warm air going out?
You don’t have to change your breathing, you are breathing just fine.
If you get distracted, (and you will!!), know that this is normal. It’s great that you notice it, and just bring your attention kindly back to your breathing.
Focussing all your attention on your breathing can help calming the body and mind, and giving your brain a break from all that thinking!!
And it’s only three minutes, and you always have three minutes!!
Have a good week!
Healthy Mind, Happy Heart
