Mindfulness Notebook For You
There is a difference in knowing the path and actually walking it. This is a lovely saying especially in connection with mindfulness, taking a break and living in the moment.
To start every day with a mindful pause maybe five minutes, maybe two – at least to begin somewhere. You can take a long breath, write down what is happening inside you or simply try to free your mind.
We have received so much lovely feedback for our little series that we want to end it with something practical – something you can take along – to become more conscious and aware.
We hope you enjoy it.
