Mindfulness is a word we hear tossed around often these days. But today’s culture doesn’t really seem to foster having a very mindful state. I saw a phrase earlier that said ‘slow is the new cool’, and I wonder if that is where we need to head to as a society next. This constant state of being always turned on, busy, working … it doesn’t seem sustainable. Maybe moving back to a slower way of living is where we need to go next, a way of learning to manage the information overload that comes at us daily, or perhaps just start ignoring it completely.
This sessions reminds us to take time to be slow. To focus on what is right in front of us at the moment, not worrying about the next thing or what should have been done instead. Take each day one step at a time, one task at a time, one moment at a time.
