Sometimes are harder than others to be mindful ... to be right here, right now, rather than worry about something that did happen or something that might. One mindfulness technique that is commonly used involves focusing on what you can see and hear and feel right now ... well, even that I find hard sometimes. BUT. I have discovered Soundscaping. I pretend I'm making a sound recording and I listen acutely to the sounds I am capturing. I imagine what the recording would sound like. Last week I recorded a walk on the beach and a walk to work on my iPhone. I find this technique remarkable. It helps me to get incredibly focused. ... couldn't upload the files to share with you, but I invite you to make your own.
This blog is dedicated to sharing resources for taking care. It was inspired by my darling friends, Mary and Wendy - we all love real stuff that inspires. A new resource will be posted on Sundays. If you have any you would like to share please email them in to: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
