Awareness is the keystone to all other mindfulness topics. Noticing thoughts, feelings, and their consequences is the springboard to living intentionally. These cards are a tiny sample of how to get in tune with your body and mind.  


Unexpected Guest

As you focus on the breath, thoughts arrive like an unexpected guest. It’s fine, you are doing the practice perfectly.

Kindly acknowledge, “Hello thought; not now.”  Return to focusing on the breath.

The body, brain, breath practices can be done anywhere, anytime. Try a 1-minute-per-day practice. Do what feels right.

*Perfect opportunities: in line, at your desk, in traffic, in the shower, during lunch, in lieu of social media, brushing your teeth, folding laundry, getting your nails done, walking the dog, when you first wake up, before you go to bed...find purposeful pauses throughout your day.
