#RealHappiness Day 13

Being mindful in the moment requires that we slow down and pay attention.  This can happen with everyday tasks – brushing your teeth, washing dishes,  drinking a cup of coffee or tea.  The idea of focusing on the senses with the activity – in the meditation example a cup of tea- helps keep us grounded in the present.  If we focus on the feel of the cup, the warmth of the sip, the scent – we are not focusing on the conference call later in the day.  We’re present.  In the moment.  Drinking coffee.  We slowed down.  We are here now.  Experiencing this event.  Right now.  Not multitasking. What activities might you do as part of this mindfulness activity?
