Good afternoon and Happy Friday,
I hope you had as productive or restful of a day as needed.
At first I felt like my day had just flown by, robbed from me almost but then I remembered that those are the time to focus on what I HAVE done instead of dwelling on all that I could have done, but didn’t.
So here it is an ACTIVE and mindful play by play of my day:
-Slept until I naturally awoke
.-Watched the UFC highlights with Alex.
-Enjoyed my morning coffee whilst admiring the snow.
-Finished the puzzle I’ve been working on all week.
-Had tea and cake for breakfast.
-Face timed loved ones.
-Finally got round to baking the rainbow bagels sent to us as a gift during the week.
-Watched some Westworld Season 3.
-Realised I hadn’t yet sent todays e-mail, so made a cup of tea and here I am.
This is a simple but great way of practicing mindfulness because it’s the perfect example of how our minds can slip into autopilot, however if we sit back and take a proper look, seeing just how much there is to be noticed.
No un-natural spiritual woo woo to get to grips with, no major effort being asked…simply recalling your own day for a minute.
I invite you to do the same, journal it out or reply to this email and tell me everything!
Don’t hold back or worry that I wouldn’t care, I do… because I know how important it is to not only give yourself credit for the big and little achievements and joys of the day, but to remember the power of a day spent resting too.
A Friday of Self-awareness shall we say?
