In the ‘Moment’ Self Care...
the quality or state of being conscious or aware, a mental state achieved by focusing on the present moment
This Self Care practice doesn’t cost you anything accept your presence and attention, awareness on purpose!!!
I’m guilty of being every where accept present in the moment, for instance, in a conversation or physically in a meeting but my mind is wandering everywhere else. When it comes to our thoughts we have more control than we realize but in our fast paced world and tech lifestyle we rarely take the time to stop and intentionally channel our thoughts and our breathing unless prompted to do so.
Mindfulness takes practice, it’s a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. Start with a moment of silence (like a minute or two) before entering a meeting or activity. There’s countless studies, research and information on the benefits of mindfulness that includes, stress relief, improved sleep, and physical health. Just google it.
