In this week’s blog I’m going to share three of my favourite activities to help you slow your roll so that you can live more joyfully in the present moment. You may already be familiar with some of these practices, however, others may be new to you. My intention is to provide you with a gentle reminder of the importance of slowing down, being present, taking it all in, moment by moment without judgement. Just being.
Do you sometimes drive somewhere and when you arrive you don’t remember driving there? Your mind was thinking ahead to your plans for the weekend, or what to cook for dinner, or you were replaying an argument you had with your partner. You had simply driven to your destination on autopilot. Happens all the time when we’re not living in the now. I call that distracted living. The danger of course with distracted living is that you’re missing out on what’s happening in the moment, which is after-all the only thing you have any control over.
