Everyone has a different experience when it comes to mindfulness.
Naturally, when I commit to mindfulness, my mind will rush off into thoughts or goals or aspirations for the day. But then, other little moments will come along. From noticing the fish swimming around me when I’m in the water, to having a conversation with someone, to drinking a glass of water; mindfulness is being immersed in my environment and appreciating those little moments along the way.
I embrace mindfulness every day when I enter the ocean. I'm mindful of which board I want to take, of how the sand feels under my feet, and how the ocean feels when it brushes over my skin. When I take that first dive under the water, my whole body exhales, and I'm very mindful of how it makes me feel in that moment.
