This image is what inspired my purchase the url, bemindful.com. Right now, the site is a collection of other sites and apps that I have visited that have helped me to live mindfully. Moving forward, I hope to add both more original content and additional finds from other mindful sites, blogs, products, organizations, ideas, individuals and events.
Mindfulness is defined as full awareness, and is something I try to practice each day. I am not an expert by any means, but I am aware of its value and benefits.
I look to mindfulness to find inspiration, seeking calm and clarity in this crazy world of distractions. As a parent of two small children, life is busy. It can be a struggle just to get myself and my kids out the door each morning.. One simple thing I do each day with my kids is to set a daily intention. It can be as simple as saying "have a a great day," or " be happy ", as we pause by the front door of our house on the way to school in the morning. It is one simple way to connect as a family and bring a little mindfulness to the start of our day.
More coming on the be mindful blog soon!
