I absolutely love reading my mindfulness books, because they provide lovely reminders to me, sometimes the reminders are really helpful for me at the moment. Some reminders come at the right time, like this one. I read this one today, and I really needed this reminder. I spent too much time scrolling today. I realized I lacked too much mindful time today. I decided I will stay off the computer, and phone for the rest of the day, and practice mindfulness. I need space to be creative, to be inspired, which I am lacking at the moment.
It is really good to have daily inspirational reminders to keep you on track, and to put things into perspective. We get lost in the noise that we forget to enjoy the silence. Time to unplug, and embrace the loveliness of the quiet. My mind needs it. It is important for our peace of mind to unplug every once in awhile, especially when we had too much noise for the day.
This is a personal post about my experience this weekend. I decided not to go online at all in the morning this weekend. I tend to scroll mindlessly a lot on the weekends, so I decided to have a mindful, and me time in the mornings.
I really enjoyed doing this practice. It gives me the head space to clear my mind, and be creative. It just allows my thoughts to run free. It is like I am in my own space. I don’t think I am mindful enough sometimes, but when I do get into a mindful mode. I wonder why I don’t do it often.
It just felt good to be away from the computer, and focus on me. I did some writing. I meditated. I worked on my online course. I did some mindful exercises, which can be fun. My mom bought me a lovely mindfulness book, and it really helps you put things into perspective, and see things differently. I mindfully listened to some music. I did some journaling, cleaning, and exercising. This me time allowed me to think more about things, but in a very mindful manner. I just allowed my thoughts to flow freely. It is a really wonderful experience to give yourself space to be you, and work on you.
I felt a sense of peace, relaxation, and positivity from giving myself the space to be me. I wasn’t bombarded by others thoughts and negativity by going online. I was just giving my mind the space it needed for clarity and creativity, which is a very beautiful thing. I like to continue this practice daily, especially on the weekends when I have more time on my hands. I hope you all have a lovely mindful morning wherever you are.
