Today’s Monday Dose of Mindfulness post focuses on the benefits of bringing moment-to-moment awareness to a daily task. After all, what could be an easier way to build mindfulness into your daily routine than to practice mindfully completing a task that you would do anyway?
This Monday Dose of Mindfulness describes a simple mindfulness exercise to help you practice your mindful observation skills while enhancing your connection to nature.
The focus of today’s Monday Dose of Mindfulness is Mindful Walking. This exercise may be an especially beneficial way for individuals who have difficulty sitting still (e.g., ADHD, restlessness due to anxiety) to begin practicing mindfulness, as many other mindfulness exercises involve stillness in the body.
