Mindful Wakeup




First thing in the morning:

• Close your eyes and connect with the sensations of your seated body.

• Take three long, deep, nourishing breaths—breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. Then let your breath settle into its own rhythm,

• Ask yourself: “What is my intention for today?” and then set that intention.

• Throughout the day, check in with yourself. Pause, take a breath and revisit your intention.

Procrastination: Why It Happens

Procrastination is when we avoid the tasks in our list, feeling the pressure to complete them and going through various emotions like blame, anger, frustration and anxiety. The reason we procrastinate is because we value the now and instinctively prefer to procure and enjoy our rewards sooner rather than later.

It is easier and rewarding to relax, grab a beer and watch an episode of our favourite show rather than tackling a work assignment, which would not give any rewards in the now.

  • keep our mortality in mind at all times,
  • view things as they are,
  • reflect thoughtfully,
  • focus on what’s within our control, and
  • practice virtues like generosity, honesty, and self-control.

When Our Hearts Are Our Guides, Our Souls Are Fed
  • As I reflect on how we connected – we laughed, we cried, and in those 3 short hours, we grew to know and understand each other as friends.
  • With my heart as my guide, I let go of my prejudices, my judgments, and I let the best of me connect with who he was, not who he appeared to be, when I sat down next to him with my preconceived ideas.
  • That was when the magic began. The magic of seeing someone as they wanted to be seen, without a label, an expiration date, and without judgment.
