Washing up – Mindfulness Meditation

Standard

washing-up2For most of us

washing up is a chore.

But you can change that.

 

Make it your daily

mindfulness meditation routine.

 

Feel the warmth of the water caressing your hands

washing-up1

 

feel the soft bubbles,

move slowly around the plate,

smell the scent of the washing up liquid.

feel the smooth surface

enjoy the different shapes of the dishes

 

washing-up

be aware of the beautiful pattern on the plate,

dwell on the plate for a while,

think of how it got there.

Caress the spoon with your sponge,

feel the smoothness of the cleaned glass,

feel calm, don’t rush,

be conscious of the moment.

*****

Small every day tasks are not wasted moments

but part of precious moments we have in our lives.

Enjoy Washing up!

Danny traveled again this time to Germany

visiting old friends.

He met Petzi, a senior teddy,

He couldn’t hold back his excitement  and jumped right up to say hello.

blue sky and beautiful snowdrops.

 

 

 

Danny found his favourite:

a ” Schwäbische Brezel”

They enjoyed a good chat and cuddle next to Spring flowers.

After a week of sunshine he said good bye to Germany in rain

which gave us a beautiful picture of this snowdrop.

We are always so busy in our lives,

with chores, and general life.

Often we forget to look after ourselves.

Forget the mobile phone, and social media

switch off for a while.

meditate,

read a book,

have a bath,

visit a friend,
