Mind, now...

I am, so far, bad at meditation.  I’m working on it.  In the meantime, it is a good thing that there are other paths to mindfulness.  Here are a few:

• Cardio:  walk, run, swim, dance.  Anything rhythmic and breathless will encourage the monkey mind to chill out.

• Yoga and Pilates:  They build in the breathing!  It’s right there!  Also the focus that gets us out of our repetitive thoughts!

• Journaling:  This includes not only writing, but drawing and coloring as well.  Another variation is to create a commonplace book in which we copy down meaningful poems, passages, sayings, or verses.

• Going outside:  Sun and air can cure an awful lot of brain-fuzz.  Add water and we are golden!
