I want to make a new groove, a time where we can identify with putting tweaks in the day to be a little more mindfully present, to Translate some good intent and action.
[It’s] tiny tweaks: the tiny tweak of “I love this person—but every time they come home from work I hardly get up from my computer to even say hello to them,”
~ Susan David ~
Smart folk recognize the need to take a step back — to put the shiny new toy down for a minute to identify with the important values within the day. Emotional agility lets say, based on well established gratitude.
Can we capture a moment in exchange for something truly meaningful?
It is no conspiracy, we can consciously iron out a few personal imperfections here and there and find some unprecedented positive experiences and happiness with it.
How do we engage, in practical ways, with ourselves in a way that is curious and compassionate?
If we can start recognizing that values are actually qualities of action rather than abstract things, yes we thrive.
Lets call this a ‘wise effort practice’ a letting go of what is not helpful and skilfully cultivating the good in ourselves, our relationships and our communities.
So stop, be fully present and enjoy a little bit of simple active success now.
Those things that can really help to boost our mental wellbeing: CONNECT – connect with the people around you: your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Spend time developing these relationships. BE ACTIVE – you don’t have to go to the gym. Take a walk, go cycling or find the yoga mat. Find an activity that you enjoy and make it a lifetime habit. GIVE TO OTHERS – even the smallest act can count, whether it’s a smile, a thank you or a kind word. BE MINDFULL – be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you. Some people call this awareness “mindfulness”. It can positively change the way you feel about life and how you approach challenges.
