Yes, you can be mindful, brushing your teeth!!
“The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how to cultivate mindfulness. Mindfulness means being awake. It means knowing what you are doing.”
- Jon Kabat- Zinn
an American Professor of Medicine Emeritus and the creator of Stress of Reduction Clinic and the Centre of Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society at the University of Massachusetts, USA.
Try bringing mindfulness into routine aspects of your daily life:
- When waking up the in the morning
- When brushing your teeth
- When taking a shower or bath
- When drying your body.
- When getting dressed.
- When shopping
- When travelling to work, school or for social activities.
There are endless examples of how you can bring mindfulness to your everyday life. You just need to bring yourself to the present moment – this time, this place, this exact moment. And breathe…..just breathe. Even just for a couple of minutes.
