Many times the items on our to-do list are done mindlessly on auto-pilot. We try to get our errands out of the way so we can enjoy the rest of the day.
We rush away part of our day and we weren’t even present for it. How much time do we spend on a daily basis getting our errands or tasks over with?
When we live this way we close the door on opportunities to enjoy ourselves.
The mundane day to day living is just as much as a part of life as the sports, luncheon or vacation you are participating in.
Try this the next time you are in the supermarket:
- Go to the produce isle.
- Stand and look around taking in the total scope of what is in front of you.
- Walk around and focus on the colors, textures, shapes and smells.
- While going down the other aisles, continue to focus on the displays, colors, shapes, people you pass and whatever else comes into view.
- When checking out, look at your items as you put them on the counter.
Notice your state of mind after you finish.
