Notice one thing new, every day and write it down.
Mindfulness means paying attention in a new way. We spend so much of our day busy watching out for what lies ahead that we don’t take the time to enjoy what is right in front of us. So notice one new thing every day and write it down.
Notice something new about a person, a place, the way something tastes, a birdsong, the first blooming flower, anything new, each and every day. Write it down in a small notebook or on a notes app on your phone. Noticing one new thing pulls you out of your head and into the present moment.
New habits are born from small, consistent steps and each month of my mindfulness project will have a focus. The first month is dedicated to the act of simply noticing, a small, but powerful step in living a tad bit more mindfully.
“The practice of mindfulness begins in the small, remote cave of your unconscious mind and blossoms with the sunlight of your conscious life, reaching far beyond the people and places you can see.” ~Earon Davis
