Good morning, everyone. Monday Mindfulness is back after a brief pause.
You know what? It’s good to pause now and then. It’s good to break routine, do what some might consider ‘nothing’ for a bit, and simply appreciate being.
For many, a world in lockdown may feel like a world paused – and for some, that may seem a scary notion. But, as Eckhart Tolle reminds us in today’s quote, stillness can be a wonderful thing. Within stillness lives opportunity – for everything from self-discovery to a greater appreciation of place. When we become still – as in meditation, for instance – it can be as though a door has been opened for us, through which we might step into realms of deeper connections and greater understanding. There is possibility in pause.
Whatever you might find yourself getting up to this week, please remember to be kind to yourself. Try to extend that kindness to others too if you feel able. And don’t forget as well to make a little time to pause every now and then.
