The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware. - Henry Miller
It is so easy in this busy, nonstop world to always keep moving and not pay attention while we do it. We can go from one place to another - constantly checking off our "to-do's". We've all been there. And yet, the problem is when we stay there, when we auto-pilot through our lives.
There are a lot of reasons that we can use to justify this as okay. However, deep down, we are making compromises for our health - for our mental and physical well-being. You deserve more, and so do others around you.
This week, focus on being aware. Be aware of the relationships around you. Be aware of how you feel. Listen to the sounds around you.
Take some time to pause and just be.
How will you practice more mindfulness?
