becalmed mindfulness

If you’re somewhat conscious, you can notice what your mind is doing or rather what you are letting your mind do. You are in charge after all.

IMG_0941there are times in our life when we are legitimately becalmed. It seems I have nothing to do or you have nothing to do.

Hurry up and wait

or

There is simply nothing to do.

So….what happens? Do you start entertaining yourself? Get on Instagram, check news sites, flip on the radio, check your email, messages?

If you’re somewhat conscious, you can notice what your mind is doing or rather what you are letting your mind do. You are in charge after all.

One Thing you could choose to do is experience the boredom, the nothing to do. Taste it. fee; the itchiness, the jumpiness

and not act on it

see how long you can go

five minutes

ten minutes

an hour

hours

a day

a week

see what happens!
