When we think of the term ‘mindfulness’ our thoughts might go to some deep, candle-lit meditation practise – and that certainly is very mindful, but you really don’t need to worry about doing anything quite so involved. A mindful activity is anything which allows you to be present in the moment.
For example, instead of simply making your morning coffee and chugging it as quickly as possible whilst also juggling a million other little things, you might pause to take in the nutty, almost caramel aroma, or feel the warmth of the mug in your palms.
A warm drink is by no means mandatory but absolutely recommended as an accompaniment to your mindful moment. Take a slow sip and let’s get started.
