This weeks mindful reminder is written by Roz x
No matter what we are experiencing in life; whether it be spending time with family and friends or working, as many of you are likely to be doing now, we can often find that our minds are very active and we can feel quite separate from our bodies and from the reality of what’s actually happening.
We can find ourselves lost in thought and feeling quite tired as the thoughts race through our minds and we attach to them creating tension and agitation for ourselves.
Spending a few minutes each day practising mindfulness can help to calm the chattering mind, help us to feel calm in our bodies and to gain a better perspective on life. We find that we have more choice throughout our day and we can manage challenges with clarity of thought and a sense of calmness.
So, perhaps you would like to set an intention to practice each day formally and/or informally in whatever way suits you.
Remember to use your senses as anchors to bring you into the present moment: taste, smell, touch, hearing, sight and of course see if you can just notice the thoughts, label them and return your attention to the present moment again.
