What is time for? This may be a magical minfulness question that can help you land back in your body if you are feeling out-of-sorts.
Consider the following thought streams:
“argh! I’m never going to have time to clean the house.”
“gasp! I’m already dreading this week.”
“I’m so glad I was able to make time to visit my son’s class today.”
“Look at those crocuses popping through the snow.”
“It’s going to be such a hassle to teach my kids how to fold their laundry, I might as well just do it myself.”
“I can tell my daughter really enjoys it when we read together.”
“Ah damn, It’s getting late and I’ve got to get some exercise today.”
“I’m feeling pretty good in my body on this run today.”
“I love cooking a meal with my family.”
“God! what are we going to eat this week?!”
Which thought streams made you feel centered, mindful and in the present moment? Which one’s stressed you out?
Now can you answer the question, “what is time for?”
We wish you twenty minutes of mindfulness every day!
