I am a big believer in taking regular vacations to promote mindfulness and recharge. When is your next vacation? My philosophy is to always have something on the calendar to look forward to. It is also important to focus on mindfulness in your daily life. One of my favorite vacation treats is relaxing with a cup of coffee. Many recharges in life can truly be simple.
How long did it take you to down your last cappuccino? Next time, take a cue from the Japanese, whose formal tea ceremony can last four hours. Before taking a drink, participants raise their bowls in tribute to all the factors that came together to create that moment. Try this suggestion: Focus on the drink in front of you. Notice the smell, and relish the flavor. You’ll find it’s a wonderful daily exercise in mindfulness.
