Cambridge Dictionary – “The practice of being aware of your body, mind, and feelings in the present moment, thought to create a feeling of calm.”
Lifehacker – “Mindfulness has many synonyms. You could call it awareness, attention, focus, presence, or vigilance. The opposite, then, is not just mindlessness, but also distractedness, inattention, and lack of engagement.”
Have you ever driven to work, a friend’s house, or run errands – and upon arrival, have no idea how you got there?
Have you ever spent a day busy, but didn’t accomplish much?
In our day and age, our systems become overloaded… much like the Wi-Fi at home… with the various connections, interactions, demands of energy, output of energy, noise, lights, and more.
The practice of daily mindfulness is being aware of each moment and action, getting the most out of your time and the time of others. I will be hosting a workshop every couple of months at Renkon Studio on how to recognize ways to carve out moments and activities that will help you focus and become more efficient while stressing less.
Topics will include:
- How to create a practice for yourself – doing much of what you already do each day!
- How to calm yourself when it becomes overwhelming
- Tips and tricks to keep you on task and to reduce anxiety
- How to capture each moment and enjoy the most of it
- Physical, mental, and spiritual benefits
- Hacks on best ways to do it – and easy ways to get back to it when the wheels fall off (and they do!)
I’d love to have you join this discussion, in a comfortable setting, focused on YOU and empowering you to start, continue, or go deeper into your practice. We’ll discuss the preconceived notions of mindfulness, and get to the reality – meaning, how you can add this to your busy life and easy hacks to get more done (yes, it can happen!).
