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.

Living in the present moment

Some new pictures have been  posted on Mindful Moments of neighborhood gardens and images outside my office door. There is such beauty surrounding us if we can just take a few extra moments to notice! After a long day of work this past Tuesday, I unlocked my car door and placed all my stuff in the back seat. Starting the car, I noticed this pretty butterfly flitting around the container of pink flowers at the office entrance. A part of me felt like putting my car in drive and heading home. Instead, I took the extra time to get out of my vehicle and snap a bunch of pictures. It was magical. This butterfly kept moving from one delicate pink flower to the next. It hovered first and then took a long, slow drink of the tasty nectar. I was delighted to have taken time to enjoy this butterfly ’s dance !

 Recently, I have noticed how many people are missing out on these gifts of Mother Nature. Both on my walks at the West Hartford reservoir and around my neighborhood this week, I have noticed people walking side by side while both scrolling on their phones! So many missed chances for deeper connection with one another and the surroundings around us

Are you savoring the moments in Mother Nature? It can be as simple as noticing the sound of the birds, the feel of the air, the heat of the sun on your face. You don’t even need to go to some special place to reap these benefits. Perhaps today as you are out running errands and going into work, simply notice what is happening around you. It does help restore us.
