Mindfulness Example

Find a quiet moment, and take a look at this sunset. Notice if you are in a hurry, impatient, just have a quick look and think there are better ways to fill your time.

Look again, sitting comfortable, breathing calmly, and give yourself a couple of minutes to take in what you see- the colours and shapes of the clouds, the trees in shadow, the last glow of the sun, for example.  Focus on calmly breathing, relaxing, calming your mind.

After a couple of minutes, stretch and move, look away from the photo and notice your own world with fresh eyes. Notice how you feel now- hopefully calm and relaxed!
