Imagine that the simple repetitive act of placing one hand over the other, as the cool water flows seamlessly over the suds on your fingers.
If this image gives you a sense of peace and serenity, you will be super pleased to know that the simple act of washing ones hands is an act that can be done mindfully… if done right.
You can begin the process of changing your mind by washing your hand mindfully.
A huge part of getting a grip on your life is being intentional, mindful, and PRESENT
I am always coaching my readers on being PRESENT but remember this- the more in BEING! and present you can be the happier you will find yourself and the happier you are the better human you are!
You might discover some hidden thoughts while washing or showering. I love to contemplate in the shower and even meditate for a few seconds.
Listen to this video on exactly how this can work wonders for you and your mindfulness journey.
The next time you go to the bathroom, try this:
Begin by watching how the water flows over your hands (Pause.Reflect)
Pay attention to the temperature of the water and how that feels on your skin
Pay attention to the sound the water makes, and the finish on the faucet handles
Pay attention to the lather that the soap is making (Pause.Reflect)
Smell the scent the soap is giving off
Observe the movement of your hands
What other thoughts are trying to poke into your mind?
What worries can you wash away?
What negative emotions can you release?
Finally, imagine murky water flowing from you and realize that this is THE RELEASE of negative emotions and un-positiveenergy that is lingering that is not serving you!
Mindfully washing your hands does not just involve paying attention to the movement of your hands; a lot potentially opens up for you as you pay attention to the internal conflict, dialogue/thoughts, emotions and energies.
If all you do is pay attention to the movement of your hands, and you are present in the moment… for that moment, consider it is a HUGE WIN because you were able to begin to affect the underlying dialogue in your mind AND you are taking CONTROL of your life!
