Mindful Day – Music

Standard

Today have a specially mindful day

 

How about

 

you listen to a piece of music

 

without doing something else.

 

Close your eyes and enjoy the instruments playing,

 

listen to the music in detail,

 

hear the different instruments,

 

enjoy the soothing sound,

 

give thanks to your ears picking up the sound.

 

and most of all

 

Relax

 

How about this one:

 

 

 

 

 

My special walk

Standard

I heard from Steffi that WordPress is doing this special walk wwwp5k .

A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. That is roughly equal to:

  • Twelve laps around a track.

  • Approximately 6,000-7,500 steps.

  • Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.

It was any time between Monday, September 19th to Sunday, September 25th, lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world!

 I participated and here is my post

I made it a mindful walk on my own.

My impressions from my walk:

That was a lovely mindful walk,

Why not try a mindful walk yourself,

being fully present,

notice the beauty around you,

enjoy every step you do,

… and you don’t even notice how far you go!

Mindfulness is the energy of awareness. It’s being conscious of the existing moment. Of living life deeply throughout each day and being fully alive, right here, right now. It is connecting with what we do and also with what and who is around us.

Jon Kabat-Zinn puts it a bit better
‘Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non judgmentally’

The most precious gift, we can offer others is our presence.

When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.
