Mindfulness March

We’re at the start of a new month, March.  So why not start a new mindfulness practice?
I don’t know about you guys but for me, my phone is a huge distraction.

Have you ever had those days when you get home, sit down, check your phone and a kazillion hours later you’ve found yourself down a rabbit hole scrolling social media feeds or caught up in more work? This is definitely me.

So, my new mindfulness practice for this month is, to not do this.

To help me make this happen I have created an adorable little home for my much-appreciated phone. Every day when I get home, my phone goes into its happy new home.

When the time comes that I need to use my phone, (or choose to).  The plan is, that I have to stay in the area of this one spot while I use my phone.

It’s kind of a throwback to the days where everything wasn’t wireless.

Remember those times when phone cords were attached to the wall?  Okay, so I’m dating myself.  Long story short, if you wanted to talk to a friend for hours at a time (yes hours) you would have to sit in that one spot where your corded phone lived (which was usually in the middle of your family room- where everyone was hanging out)

 

So that’s the idea.  I’m starting this practice in hopes that confining me to one spot will help make my phone use thought out and mindful.

This is the beginning of my new mindfulness practice.

Are you doing any mindfulness practices? Inspire others by sharing what you’re doing.
