March Mindfulness

2015 is the year of mindfulness for me. This is my one little word, my focus, my hope and wish, and my practice.

A few times this month I used the hashtag #mindfulness when posting pictures. It served as both a reminder and a hope- that I can and would stop and live in the present when possible. Sipping tea on my balcony under the moonlight, pausing to notice a uniquely shaped tree outside of a conference, or taking time to stare at the ocean, listening to the waves and watching the sun glimmering over the water.

One week’s focus at Weight Watchers this past month was about mindful eating. My brother and I enjoyed a nice dinner on the balcony, focused on the flavors and our meal together. Mindful eating is another practice that takes time and effort… and practice! I’m still working on that, along with the rest of my mindfulness practice.

Writing about my face-to-face meetings, in reflecting on the here and now, was one of my most productive, mindful activities this month. I hope to find more ways to stop and be grateful in April.
