|I love eating my breakfast outside in the summer mornings. Usually, it’s very hot around this time in Texas, but this morning is perfect! Sunny, 22 C / 72 F and a fresh breeze. A quote from yesterday’s yoga class rings in my head; “yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future, and today is a gift – that’s why it’s called the present.”
This morning really feels like a gift! I connect with my senses to be mindfully present; I listen to the birds, I taste the blueberries, I smell the aroma of my coffee, I feel the morning breeze on my skin and I see the sun shine through the trees.
It’s well know that practicing mindfulness gives us a greater well-being and can help us to increase our ability to regulate emotions, decrease stress, anxiety and depression. It can also help us to focus our attention, aswell as to observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment. All, which is very useful in our work with clients.
In Body-Centered Coaching, mindfulness plays a key role as it’s the core foundation along with the body sensations. To be mindful is a daily practice and it doesn’t’ have to be complicated! It can be seen as an intention to be aware, inspired, curious and open for what’s going on around us and inside of us, and it’s all about our own inner experience. Here is a great article from HuffPost on easy daily practices, enjoy!
I wish you a very happy and mindful summer!
Love and presence,
