The world feels a little chaotic. While time is the most valuable tool we’ve got, we’re all busy and we tend to cram and overload our days. My moments of mindfulness help me reset and declutter my head, especially when I’m moving from one activity to the next. This means I can be present and give each thing – whether it’s meetings, family time or training – the attention it deserves.
Being mindful can be as simple as connecting with your breath, having a drink of water, or even focusing on a spot on the wall – whatever works to bring you back to the present.
Through Mindfulness Month, I want to learn that it’s okay to prioritise my needs and take some time out to sit, reflect and reconnect with myself. That’s not being selfish. Ultimately, the more you look after yourself, the more you can give to those around you.
