This week’s Healthier You Program, we are working on advancing the understanding of mindfulness while being more exploratory and experiential. (AKA – Let’s Play!)
Step 1: Watch this Ted talk:
(it is about 10 minutes long)
Step 2: Go for outside either for a walk, or sit on your backyard deck.
Step 3: See if you notice anything differently after watching this video that you have not noticed before. It could be more detail in an image. A touch (i.e.. the wind) How the trees are moving. A smell. A sound. Anything that catches your attention.
Step 4: Take 3 pictures each of 3 different things you notice around you that you normally don’t pay attention to
* You can do this exercise as a family, couple or individually (but please discuss your experiences together and share your photos with one another).
