It is often challenging to weave mindfulness into our day as we get caught up in the busyness of life. It can feel overwhelming sometimes to know what to do and how to start doing something different and having to decide stops us doing anything at all. MINDFULNESS ON THE GO is designed to address this problem. The illustrated book introduces the essential pillars of mindfulness and how to cultivate it and the 52 cards offer a day-by-day invitation to put it into practice.
There are two types of card: Activity, which is about doing something, such as a random act of kindness, and Practice, which is about being – for example, tuning into your breath. You can deliberately choose an Activity or Practice card, or leave it up to chance. Picking a practice card randomly removes the decision-making and encourages a willingness to try what is suggested regardless of personal preference, thereby gently encouraging you to move out of your comfort zone. By focusing on just one thing per day, it makes it easier to remember rather than just feeling you should be mindful all the time.
As you become familiar with the type of practices, you will find that you begin to do them without the card prompts, and mindfulness will become part of your daily life.
