Why Create a Mindful Pause in Your Day

I love to bring a moment of mindful pause into my day, purposefully being aware of what’s around me. Stepping into a moment of pause, is filling me with joy and beauty.

It’s raining here today and when I went out to get the garbage can I noticed how beautiful and vibrant my plants and stones looked all wet from the rain.  It’s as if they’ve been infused with a new energy and beauty. It made my whole body connect with the beauty in front of me.

This was my mindful pause yesterday morning, I noticed the beauty of this tree against the sky, in the parking lot coming out of the store.

You can make it an intention to mindfully find and admire something every day. A tree, a flower, a bench, a person, the way the sky looks, a child playing, the chirping of the birds, a swing in a park,…it can be anything, a rock on the ground.  But whatever it is for you, make a mindful pause part of your must for the day.  It will create a positive change in the way you feel.

I was going to write about my new word mindfulness, and I will, but today I wanted to share with you, what my word has already started to teach me.  For me, this is a practice I intend on continuing, sprinkling my days with mindful moments, that fill me with magic, joy and love.

Feel free to share in the comments below, your own ‘mindful pause’ of the day, if you have a picture that’ll be great, love to see it.

Blessings
