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
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
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!
