Mindfully implementing the here and the now! When? And How?
By Sharon Renth, Journey Path Coach
Like most of you it's busy and full of life in our home! School, work, laundry, gymnastics, games, you name it. For me this has been a question of when and how? How do we do this if it is not conveyed in a way of our own understanding? We have to have it brought to our own level or brought into our way of life. It has to be communicated in a message understood by you. Examples:
1. To be in the moment understand you have to stop multitasking (overwhelming our brains with technology, insecurities, toxic thought patterns, etc.)
2. Redefine the journey or situation. Recognize the actuality of it, accept it (does not mean to resign to it! Grow out of it!) and write the ending.
3. Believe that you are worthy of acceptance, love, and belonging, and being the author of your journey.
4. Start each day with gratitude. What you have accomplished and what you are happy about.
For me how can I do this? I don't have 20 minutes to sit and just be? Most people believe mindfulness/meditation is just something I am not going to do. I don't have time for one more thing! Let life be you mindfulness/meditation teacher, or let your children teach you? Your kids can always feel when your present (and fully in the moment) more than anyone! My children for me have always brought the sweet and the not so sweet (screaming in the checkout lane "I want candy!") reminders of this. Awareness of this was a huge milestone for me. Enjoy the precious gifts they teach you. Use there constant reminders as there unconditional love for you. The answers are within, you just first become aware and implement them in your own unique way! Find your mindfulness/meditation today?
