Just One Minute Monday (5).

Today I’m taking one minute to think about my food.

Food
Breakfast, continuing my love of fruit which was part of every morning on my recent holiday in Spain.

 

I’ve deliberately paused to look at my food and consider what I am putting into my body.  I’m trying to be conscious of how fast or slow I eat.  This is a simple way to practice a little self-care.  I want to be fully present with my food, really tasting it and noticing all its different flavours and consistencies.

 

Food 2
A beautiful meal prepared for us by Ada, my much loved Polish in-law and my cousin Roger who is like a brother to me!

I’m grateful for the variety of choices I have and for the opportunity to share food with extended family.

Do you ever stop to think about your food choices?  How often do you really savor your food and notice the individual flavours?  Do you practice self-care?  Did you relax and have a good conversation over your breakfast or dinner today or did you eat it in a hurry while multi-tasking?  I love your company here on Createspaceweb and I always look forward to your interesting comments!

Much love,

Marie xx

 

 

 

Just One Minute Monday (3).

20180618_124425

Recently while on holiday, I practiced my ‘Just One Minute Monday’ as we walked to the shops for our groceries.  My son and his girlfriend were walking in front of me, the shops were a ten minute walk each way.  The average temperature from 10am to 8pm was 30 degrees.  It wasn’t an easy walk in that heat. I’m not into counting steps and I don’t own a step counter but lots of people exercise now by counting their steps and increasing the number of steps they take daily.

I thought about the amount we walk everyday and particularly the pace we have become accustomed to.

I wondered how often do we actually slow down our steps?  Have you ever even noticed how fast you walk? Do you constantly rush from one task to the next?  Because I was on holiday I paused and focused on my steps.  I slowed down my steps. I noticed the inclines and the declines.

I listened to the sound our steps made.  I felt my heart rate slow its pace.  I felt grateful for those moments, those steps I was able to enjoy in the company of two young adults.

When have you last paid attention to how fast you walk?  Have you ever deliberately focused on your steps?  Maybe today is the day to focus one minute on your footsteps.

Much love,

Marie xx
