Mindfulness is a choice
Distractions are everywhere lately. I can’t seem to avoid them and they are interrupting my routine. Well, isn’t that what distractions do though? I remember reading a meditation book not long ago by Thich Nhat Hanh. It was about mindful living and how we should focus on the tasks at hand by breathing. Even a mundane task like doing dishes should be performed in a mindful way. He said something to the effect that we should say (to ourselves) this mantra when performing the task: “Breathing in, I calm my body. Breathing out, I smile.”

Wow, see what "one day at a time" can do?
