What if you are intentional and mindful through out your day? I think you then have SuPeR pOwErS!!
ML reminded me to stay intentional today and to make my list for the day after we got back from our walk. She said that she liked my blog the other day and was practicing being intentional too and felt so good getting so many things done. I took her advice and made a list as soon as I walked in the door. THIS little practice is AMAZING!!
By being intentional with my 2 extra bonus hours, I got so much done and was really efficient, which made me very happy. I didn’t waste any time and my house was clean, errands were run and dinner was in the crockpot, all before work.
I’ve taught my kids to live in the moment and to enjoy what life brings and to not be too busy to play, despite our workloads. So when I found our missing Spikeball game and had it displayed in our living room when they came home, they decided it was time to go outside and play. I was instructed to log off my computer and to take a break. They’re teaching me what I’ve taught them, which means I think they’re learning. 😉 Of course, I went outside and enjoyed my big kids, thankful that they still want to go outside and play and with me! After we were done playing, I went back inside to finish up work for the day. Luckily dinner was ready for them in the crockpot and they’re becoming more and more independent. I’m liking this new stage of life.
I’ll share one more mindful moment that made my day wonderful. I took a shower later this evening before dinner. The sun was shining perfectly through the window and lit up the bathroom. The lighting was glorious and I remembered my college psychology teacher, telling us to try to be present in the moment and the example of when you’re showering, to be fully present in the shower. She said to feel the water hitting your body. Listen to the water sounds. Feel the warmth and enjoy the entire experience of showering without thinking of anything else. I practiced this and loved it, closing my eyes and seeing the brightness through my closed eyes and feeling grateful. Being mindful and enjoying the present moment in the shower set the tone for the rest of my evening. The stress washed away and made for a great night.
How are you practicing setting intentions and being mindful? You have Super Powers! Are you using them too?
nAMaste and wishing you peace.
