Mindful : August 2015
5 Get your face out of your phone Your phone is your every- thing, all-the-time, go-to, distractor device. It’s like having someone nudging and nagging you all day. It constantly steals your attention. Set some bound- aries on when, where, and how you will use it. Beware letting it dominate dur- ing social occasions. Try putting it away completely during meals and parties. Pick a few places—door- ways, elevators, in line at the store—where you can make a mental note to avoid it, and take those moments when you’d be deep in cyberworld to follow your breath instead. 7 Play All work and no play...and yes, that means you. Playing isn’t restricted to children. Playing simply means doing something that has no pur- pose, plan, or aim. Wander the streets, play cards, go bowling, read for pleasure. The surprises that come from letting yourself go can exhilarate and refresh. 6 Look at something green Are your sightlines con- stantly filled with brick, concrete, glass, and carpet? How about spending a little more time where things are growing, breath- ing, giving off fragrance, swaying in the wind, and glistening in the sun? Nothing like a little nature to slow you down and show you the big picture. 8 Goforaswim Swimming some laps is just the right kind of boredom to help you de-stress. The rhythmic splush, splush, splush and the weightlessness are like being rocked in a cradle. It uses a lot of muscle groups and is great if you have old injuries that would make something like run- ning difficult. And, bonus: You can’t use your phone or watch TV while sub- merged in water. You can hear yourself think. Or not think, as the case may be. 9 Read some- thing out loud A good piece of writing or poetry read aloud can have a very soothing effect. That’s why children love to be read to. If you’re not a fan of your own voice, try listening to an audiobook. 26 mindful August 2015 how to live a mindful life PHOTOGRAPHS:©SUNNY_BABY,ANDREYBURMAKIN,IVONNEWIERINK/DOLLARPHOTOCLUB
