More on staying present and mindfulness:
I was listening to Oprah interview Jon Kabat-Zinn on her Super Soul Conversations and he said something that really stuck with me. He said that mindfulness is as simple as just stirring the pot.
When you are making dinner after a busy day of work and standing over the stove stirring the pot.... he suggests that we ONLY stir the pot. To focus on the task at hand, to just be there, in that moment.
Its that simple and that hard.
Can you try this mindfulness practice today in the little moments today…
...when you are washing your hands
...when you are sipping your coffee
...when you are chatting with your kids
What if we slowed down enough to just be right there and nowhere else?
