What does being mindful mean to you? Would you consider your current way of living, a mindful way of living? Are you often scattered, not sure where to focus, feeling drained? I’ve been feeling such things, so decided to do something about it.
Life has a lot in it – work, taxes, homes, dishes, family, kids, doggies, friends, flat tires, sunsets. But everyday begins anew, with a clean slate, and you have 24 hours to make it count.
Introducing the Mindful21 challenge.
Co-hosted with my beautiful girlfriend, Sarah, this challenge invites you to participate in 21 days of mindfulness. They say it takes 21 days to adopt a habit and building positive habits into your repertoire creates mindfulness within. So, whether you want to reconnect with yourself, your health, your body, your environment, or start something positive, there’s no better time like the present. Join us for 21 days of mindfulness with meditation, meatless meals, and movement.
Here’s how our challenge will unfold….
Starting November 16th, we will kick off 21 days of positive, mindfulness, asking you to incorporate the following:
7 days of meditation
7 days of meditation, plus a meatless meal
7 days of meditation, a meatless meal, and movement
Week one will begin with meditation. We challenge you to find 5 minutes of quiet to begin each day of this challenge. Sit with your thoughts, your intentions, your mind. Be still, calm, breathe. Finding 5 minutes to begin your day will allow you to enter into anything with a calm, mindful being. Meditation has so many health benefits, from reliving stress, to lowering your blood pressure, to grounding you. Being mindful begins with being present.
Week two will continue with 5 minutes of meditation and we’ll challenge you to add on a meatless meal into your day. Being mindful of what you’re putting into your body starts with the food we eat. A plant-based lifestyle has numerous health benefits and will leave your body feeling clean, energized and healthy. I’ll be posting recipes, plant-based tips and suggestions, and nutritional facts about the lovely fruits and veggies we eat. Living mindfully of what you eat can begin with a meatless meal.
Week three will incorporate movement into your day with a yoga flow. Building onto your 5 minutes of meditation and meatless meal, we will post a daily yoga flow that will get your body moving. Aligning your mental state with your physical is huge and by adding a yoga flow into your day will allow you to be more fluid, open, mindful.
