16 ways to be more mindfulness everyday

Happy May Day

Happy May Day all.

Here are a few reasons to love May:

  • It’s actually warm and the days are long
  • The first of May is a day of celebration – no matter the reason, everyone finds something to celebrate on 1st May. I wonder if we could extrapolate this attitude…
  • Exams usually end in May and freedom begins
  • The most memorable Bond girl/villain is called May Day
  • … 1,000 other reasons
  • (I am biased because my Birthday is in May)

I have made a little gift for everyone. A gift and a challenge. I find 30 day challenges a little scary, so this is a 16 day challenge!

A list of reminders drawing on mindfulness, Stoic philosophy and just general common sense urging us to be more present.

I hope you enjoy it. Print it out and see how you get on. I will report on how I got on on 16th May.

  2. I wish you a happy birthday! And the things on your 16 day program are things I do often (mostly) and the wear the worst clothes you own is always a test (of whether one’s spouse can tolerate them … helps me cull the loser and enrich the local thrift shop patrons).

  3. Reblogged this on I think, I say, I do and commented:
    I think that this challenge is just perfect for me. Thank you to Dr Martina for sharing this challenge she has for herself.

    Once done, by the time my birthday comes, I will have a better understanding of ME and my habits, my thoughts, my aspirations, and all that jazz… I think… I hope. 🙂 Well, at least I will be more mindful and that’s a good start.

    Do join us.

  4. I love your 16-day challenge and it’s only the second one I have ever been tempted to accept. I am relaxed about public challenges for other people, but I SO prefer to set personal private challenges that have meaning in my life. So, what a surprise to see this delightful list, so varied and specific. I may do it … but may not tell you. Thanks Martina.
