What better time to get started with your mindfulness practice than right now – Mindful in May!
My 7 Days of Mindfulness Prompts is a series of emails – one per day, seven days in a row – designed to support you in integrating simple approaches to everyday activities that create an opportunity to slow down and find peace in a monkey mind!
The moment you give up trying to quiet your mind, reach enlightenment and become one with the universe, is when your first meditation breakthrough can actually occur. When you give yourself permission to stop trying to halt your thoughts altogether, and observe them instead, that’s when magical things start to happen.
Becoming the detached observer of your thoughts helps the monkey-mind begin to slow down and suddenly, you find that quiet space between those thoughts.
- Are you frustrated by obsessive thinking or feeling anxious?
- Do you feel like you’re often reacting, not responding?
- Do you shy away from learning more about yourself?
- Do you wish you could connect with a greater sense of creativity?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then embracing a practice of mindfulness is for you!
START CLEANSING YOUR MIND & BODY. SURRENDER TO WHAT WILL BE. CREATE … YOURSELF!
Here’s the fact: Mindfulness practices are no longer the realm of the woo woo. There is plenty of evidence that supports mindfulness meditation as a pathway to greater happiness and improved well-being. Elise Bialylew, founder of Mindful in May, has summarised some of that key research in her article, 5 Scientific Reasons to Practice Mindfulness Meditation.
If you’d like some support to add mindfulness to your days, then these prompts will be a great start. I’ve kept it super simple. Each day, along with your mindfulness prompt, there’s a simple cleansing tip and a little fact (to bolster the argument!). There’ no need for any type of meditation experience – there’s something for everyone in these tips which are designed to ignite your senses and create space in a busy life.
Who couldn’t do with a little more peace, right?
