So just recently I went to go visit my sister and she has a little dog named Penny. Anyways, she asked my to take Penny for a walk while she did her thing around the house. The point to this set up is…I left my phone on the kitchen counter top and didn’t have it on me during my walk with Penny…AHHH!
But as soon as I realized that I didn’t have my phone (which was maybe 2 minutes from the start of the walk) I took it as the best thing that could’ve happened. I automatically became more mindful. I decided to just enjoy my walk with Penny, enjoy the fresh air, feel the sun, and actually look at the scenery the neighborhood had to offer. Just being more in the moment, being more mindful. It was nice.
Next time you decide to go for a walk, leave the cell phone on the kitchen counter top.
