Well, I'm a little late on the March review post. Time has been flying and I've been completely slacking on the blog posts. While it would be nice to stick to a consistent posting schedule, I’m determined to have this blog remain a fun hobby, so I’m not going to stress out about it! From past blogging experience I know I lose interest when it starts to feel like a job.
One of my challenges for March is to try to be more mindful of my eating. Like any mindfulness practice, this is simple but not easy! While the idea of enjoying a meal without any distractions sounds straightforward, it is hard to avoid mindlessly reaching for your phone, snacking in front of the tv or just getting caught up in random thoughts.
So I’ve decided to do a monthly focus for March on mindfulness - and I’m pretty excited about it...maybe partly because 'Mindful March' just sounds so catchy! I’ve been interested in meditation and mindfulness practices as a way to reduce stress and anxiety for a few years. Meditation has proven to be a very helpful tool for calming my worry-prone brain! During March I’m going to look at ways to incorporate more mindfulness into my everyday life.
