MM 5 Reflection: 21 Day Mindfulness Challenge (Day One)

Welcome to the 21 Day Mindfulness Challenge!! This is a time to push yourself, become open to change and see the transformation unfold. Every day there will be a new challenge, a description of the challenge and some tips and action steps. The daily challenges will build on each other and will gradually become more challenging. It is important not to skip a day so that you do not miss any necessary skills needed for future challenges. This week you will get a chance to apply mindfulness to simple tasks. You need to train for mindfulness, so envision this week as running one mile at a time when you are training for a 5k race. With each day, that mile becomes easier to run and by week three you are able to add a little distance. **Please also see Mindfulness Meditation One (Full Body Scan). ** What to expect today? For the entire day, just be mindful of how you navigate the world. Pay attention to what you think, feel, and how you act and respond to situations. The goal is to be aware without any judgment or trying to change anything. Example: When driving, be mindful of what you think about. Do you feel the urge to listen to a certain type of music or podcast? When you get to work, be mindful of the conversations you engage in and what thoughts and feelings occur as a result. Again, this is not the time to try to change anything but just take note of your own behaviors. This Mindful Day will be like falling in and out of a dream. You will be mindful for a while and then will slip back into a non-mindful state. Once you realize you slipped back into this “dream” state, simply bring your attention back to the present. Do not get discouraged or try to change your behavior in any way, just observe.
