Making Micromoment Memories
Can you remember what you did last week? You probably remember bits and pieces. But what makes those 'bits and pieces' stand out?
Mindfulness is not about finding solitude, retreating to a haven from the noise that makes up life (your boss asking for a report, your family wanting your presence), or going to a remote, beautiful island where the water is crystal blue, and it’s just you and the seagulls. No, mindfulness is more about finding mindful micro-momentsthroughout our day that reminds us that we are alive, breathing, and still here today. I think mindfulness is a great gift to oneself when you can take a few seconds in the midst of the chaos, screaming background, or piles of deadlines, and take a breath, and be still even for a second. The awareness of these beautiful mindful micro-moments can help drive us through the mud and is probably (in my opinion) more effective and long-lasting in permeating to all your senses than taking selfies sitting (and probably freezing in all your five senses) on top of a mountain.
