Day One

 'Beginner's Mind'

We find the ‘beginner's mind’ to be an exceptional way for us to encourage creativity and critical thinking! It is also a healthier response to stress, particularly before those pesky tests universities love. ‘Beginner’s mind’ also helps us to not make any assumptions and to start living with a positive attitude and a curious mind.

Have a wonderful experience in developing your mindful practice, one exercise at a time.

Today's Challenge

Take 1 minute to follow your breath. Be curious of your in-breath and out-breath. Stay with it from the beginning of your in-breath to the end of your out-breath. When a thought comes to visit, be aware of it and let it go, and then come back to your breath.

“Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn’t more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it.” - Sylvia Boorstein
