Day of Mindfulness

This post is inspired by Nyema’s visit to Greenville Yoga this past weekend.  She states that mindfulness is an act of remembering- remembering patience, compassion, wisdom.  She gave us this wonderful tool to help you find mindfulness in your day:

  • Wake up in the morning and before you get out of bed create an intention for your day.  (ex:  “May I be patient with others today.”)
  • Set an alarm on your stopwatch or phone to ring four times throughout the day.  When it goes off, pause and breathe deeply.  Remember your intention.
  • At the end of the day, sit quietly and breathe.  Then dedicate the work you did to someone else.  (ex:  “May the work I did today help heal my relationship with _______.)

I think this is a really wonderful way to use intention off your yoga mat.  Practice it, let it become a habit, and maybe you will inspire someone else along the way.
