Day 4 of stop walking with my eyes shut challenge. Today was one of those days when life threw me an unexpected curve ball. It would have been easy to get stressed out. I stayed calm.
Was it this exercise? Probably not entirely. This year I have made mindfulness and meditation, a huge part of my life. I think these skills have made me better able to handle my stressful life.
In addition to noticing my better ability to cope with stress. I also noticed that today- not only did I see the beauty everywhere on my walk. I noticed all the sounds as well. I heard many different kinds of birds chirping. It added to the mindfulness experience.
My favorite part of each day is doing these mindfulness exercises. I am looking forward to tomorrow’s experience!
