Mindful : June 2018
routines, and offer tips, but also encourage readers to find their own “happy living formula.” What does that mean? It means figuring out foods that work for you, the right sleep cycle for you, the right exercise, some kind of spiri- tual practice. And it’s going to change, even seasonally. Part of this is also having fun and enjoying the journey. I work with moms who are like, “Oh God, I have to go to the gym,” and I’m like, Whoa, whoa, whoa, this is your only hour to yourself and you’re dread- ing it? Find something you love doing. Authentic self-care is a lot more than food and fitness. In fact, I’d put mindfulness at the top of the list. Until you sit with yourself, you can’t know yourself, you can’t have self-esteem or take proper care of yourself. Other- wise, you’re going to be looking at the outside world to make you feel better. You also need to show up for yourself most when you don’t want to show up for yourself. I didn’t want to meditate this morning, because I was tired. But I knew if I didn’t meditate, didn’t write in my gratitude journal, and do some breathing, I wouldn’t be able to get through this busy day. So, would you say that mindfulness is the key to happiness? Happiness is something I’d be very wary of making the goal; you can’t be there all the time. Happiness comes and goes. I think contentment is something you can have. I’m content pretty much every day. I do have bad days—it’s just part of the human expe- rience. But I can sit with them and be with them. It doesn’t mean that everything is going to fall apart. ● Alison and James do a mindfulness practice together at home. You can model meditation for children of any age, Alison advises in Minding Mum. Invite them to try it with you when they get curious. the mindful interview
