Having awareness in the moment is called mindfulness. Research shows regular practice of mindfulness can help with conditions like blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, depression, headaches etc.
An easy way to practice mindfulness is by focusing on pleasant moments as they occur. Here is our pleasant moment.
Watson and I spent time in the backyard. We were aware of the pleasant feelings in the moment. We felt the warmth of the sun on our faces and the texture of the grass on our feet/paws. It was relaxing and wonderful to be outdoors. It is a small thing but we appreciated the time together ❤️
As the late basketball legend Jim Valvano once said,
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day!
