Mindfulness seems to be in trend and a bit of a focus of late. The concept seemed untouchable to me in the beginning. So I did an app search to help me in my self discovery, as one does in this technology based world. I was pleasantly surprised and grateful when I discovered an app called Headspace. I started off with the free 10 days and enjoyed the quiet time for 10 minutes a day however I was amazed how often I drifted off and lost focus. Staying in the moment was clearly not a strong quality of mine and one I felt like I needed to work on. I speak from being a mum with an 8 year old, almost 5 year old and a baby on the way. So I am thinking how is this possible when you always have to be on the ball and one step forward to be on top of everything. Or do I? I suppose that is the question of my new discovery. So for the first time I decided to pay money for a yearly subscription to an app and further my journey with Headspace. I figured an investment in myself could be the best for my self personally, my family and my business. I am up to day 27 and getting better at focusing and trying to be in the present moment. Being in the present moment is enjoyable, time doesn't seem to go as fast, better connections with others made and clearer thoughts. So I encourage you to give it a go in a style that suits you.
Perhaps as your driving in the car think about the process not the destination. I did this yesterday in my new car, as I needed to get use to everything. I enjoyed the drive. Miss almost 5 enjoyed the drive looking around. We were both calm, completed tasks on our journey and arrived in plenty of time without being in a rush. A big contrast from some other car trips etched in my memory.
It can be finding a peaceful spot at home, light a soy wax candle or your oil burner with your favourite soy wax melt. Choose a scent that makes you happy and calm, one that provides good memories.
So give it a go and I would love to hear your experiences, add them in the comments section. They might be about your struggles or your successes.
