What is it like to be still?

 

Do I know what it’s like be agitated? Yes. Do I know what it’s like to be anxious? Yes. Do I know what it’s like to be angry? Definitely.

But do I know what it’s like to be still? Do you?

Your body and mind know how to be still but often they don’t get a chance to practice stillness or quietness. Take a moment, now…. Feel your feet flat on the ground and listen for a sound, any sound, outside of yourself, then take a breath in.

There is no wrong way to do it… but depending on our beliefs we may believe we got it wrong or other people do it better or this is way, way too complicated. Maybe you could try it again…Feel your feet flat on the ground and listen for a sound, any sound, outside of yourself, then take a breath in. There is no judgement of stillness. You did it and it was fine. That’s mindfulness.

If you would like to spend a day practicing mindfulness and doing some crafting (no you don’t need any creative skills) contact Linda (087 269 4954) or Mairead (086 827 2332).
