Monday Mojo – Enjoy the Moment

What do you do when you get a day off?

It’s Easter Monday as this is published, here in the U.K. and for a lot of people it can mean any number of things, most of which require energy. We think about doing some spring cleaning. We might consider getting a bit of DIY done. Or perhaps remind ourselves the lawn needs mowing. 

In this busy world, when we get an extra day off, the focus may be more on doing than being. It’s easy to forget that we need to “be” as much as “do”, and so even when we’re blessed with gorgeous weather we see it as a chance to see to the garden or put the washing out.  And I get it, not least of all because we never know when the warm weather will arrive.  

However, this is your permission slip to take some time out too. 

This Bank Holiday, and for the rest of this week, set the intention to Enjoy the Moment. Find pockets of time in your busy schedule to sit and just be. Make yourself a cuppa, put your feet up and play your favourite songs even if only for a few minutes.  And breathe. Notice the way that air flows in and out of your body; that your breath doesn’t breathe into the future – it’s always now.
