Today is Mindful Monday. With the COVID-19 lockdown continuing, take a moment to be mindful of your thoughts. We’re all in this together!

  • Take a few deep breaths.
  • As you breathe, turn your attention to your thoughts.
  • Take a moment to notice your thoughts. Act as an unbiased observer, allowing any thoughts to come and pass at will.
  • As you notice your thoughts, imagine them as clouds floating in the sky. Notice the way that they move as they pass by. Some clouds might pass quickly, some might pass slowly, and some may float by multiple times. Allow the clouds to pass as they are ready; try to resist forcing them across the sky.
  • Continue breathing deeply and observing your thoughts. When you are ready, raise your gaze and give yourself a few moments to adjust.
