I will now blog weekly to post a new workout.
You can take a whole week to practice a mindfulness workout. It is easy to do and easy to integrate in your daily life. If you have trouble remembering it, use sticky notes or your phone and set plenty different timers and use the agenda to plan it in. This will help to make it more of a new habit, too take time to take a break, to reflect and to be mindful. This can make you more relaxed, and generally more happy too! Every new habit takes some practice, but it will happen!
This week is about judging. This is something we all do, and we are built for it too! Ever since we where roaming around, we had to be aware of danger and judge whether to hide or fight. We have however become so good at it, we do it all the time with everything. Which is good, as we have to make snap decisions in our daily life all the time, in traffic, in jobs, in childcare and what not.
Being judgmental only becomes problematic if we judge things negatively and when our judgments are not build on reality and facts. It can give us unwanted feelings and unpleasant interactions.
Long story to get to the workout this week but here it is:
Every day, as you go through your daily business, try to notice when you are being judgmental. Of another person, of your self, of a situation or an object.
That’s all, you don’t have to do anything else.
I would love to know how you get on with the workouts, feel free to let me know!
Have a good week!
