Part of mindfulness is to keep centred in the present – a sort of 'smelling the roses' moment – rather than making a to-do list in your mind, or thinking about what you didn't do and should have done. Making time for practising mindfulness each day is hugely beneficial – and even more beneficial is to see how it can flow over into the rest of your day. In other words, see if you can accept where you are right in this moment - not worrying or planning, just enjoying 'the now'.
Today is Sunday – and I didn't feel like rushing. I had things to do in the morning anyway. And so my practice was done in the early afternoon. When you start to slow down and take your time, you realise that that 'fomo' (fear of missing out) is a bit misleading. When you slow down, you start to tune in to your inner voice, which knows what's best for you. It knows which things will fill you up; it knows when you need to take a rest; it knows when that social event is just a bit too much; it knows when you need to take exercise; it knows when you need company. This inner wise one has all the answers you seek, but you have to listen. You can't possibly miss out on your life - because you are living it.
