Each day is a new beginning! Can you begin this day in the spirit of mindful self-compassion? What would it be like to bring a soft and gentle heart to all that you do? Imagine treating yourself like you would a good friend today. Instead of listening to your critical voice, meet each situation with kindness and support. You may discover that this day is a day well lived.
Where is your mind right now? Without judging the findings, chances are you may have been thinking about something in the future or trying to resolve something from the past.
We are hard-wired to scan for problems and threats. Research shows that we spend about 50% of our waking hours in this state of mind called the default mode network.
There is another way though and that is with mindfulness; being present to more moments of your day without judgmentas you live them. Is this a day that you can tip the scales and be present more than 50% of the time to what is happening, as it is happening?? You may be surprised with how wonderful it feels to live more of your moments fully.
