These past few weeks, I have felt a little bit like a chicken with my head cut off. I am filling my time with things that bring me happiness and enjoyment, I’m filling my work schedule with meaningful projects, and I’m having fun doing it…but I still feel a little scatter-brained.
When I start to feel this way, (5 million ideas running through my head, constantly jumping from task to task, etc) I realize that the best thing for me to do is slow down and not take action at all…at least not in that moment. It helps for me to become more mindful as I go throughout my day, say yes to projects, and decide what I want to dedicate my time to.
I increase my mindfulness by starting my day with meditation and a bible verse, but I’ve found that there are so many ways so many different people find mindfulness.
It’s also important to note that mindfulness isn’t just something that makes me feel better, but there are studies showing that meditation and mindfulness can help decrease anxiety 🙂
