It's the last day of March today and the beginning of new week. How are you doing with being mindful in all areas of your life? Are you able to look back on March and see progress?

I have managed to increase the amount of exercise I am doing in March. Feel I need to look at meals I am fixing and come up with some better ones. Didn't always get in my 8 glasses of water, so need to work on that, been good about tracking.

Hugs,
Shirl

March 31 Mindful Monday

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Definitely being mindful of building a healthy lifestyle. Looking back at March, I have maintained the habits I developed in the 5% Winter Challenge and looking forward to the Spring Challenge. Understand that food is a friend not a foe. Exercising a minimum of 40 to 60 minutes each day.

Have worked out what I need to pack from my apartment for Big Brother/Big Sister to pick up. Now just need to collect boxes to pack the stuff. Will be donating 2 more bags of books to the local library for their book sale or shelves, depending on the titles.

Need to do paperwork for finances.

March 31 Mindful Monday

It's the last day of March today and the beginning of new week. How are you doing with being mindful in all areas of your life? Are you able to look back on March and see progress?

Take the time today to be mindful of the areas in your life that you still need to work on. I'm reading an excellent book called : Small Move, Big Change: Using Microresolutions to Transform Your Life Permanently by Caroline L. Arnold. See if your local library has it available...it's well worth the read.

Today I WILL be mindful of...sticking to my microresolution of eating breakfast before I leave for work. This way I will be eating mindfully and at a regular time.

Hugs,
Wanda

I'm being mindful this evening...have a headache so am going to rest for this night...and will check email tomorrow morning before I head out for work. Need to get back on track with my new habits - too many activities since Friday...so taking back control.Unexpected lunch out today with two of our survivors...and not many healthy choices at the restaurant. Too much sodium and I can feel it. :(

Thanks for this challenge, Wanda.

Mar 17 Mindful Monday

Your challenge today is to pay careful attention to the signals that your body sends you. Are you really hungry or will a glass of water satisfy? Is your body feeling the need to move and you are moving it, or are you just being lazy? Is your thinking leaning more towards being a positive influence or are you allowing negativity to come to the fore front?

Challenge yourself to be the best that you can be today.

Hugs,
Wanda

March 3 Mindful Monday!

As we start into another new month, our challenge for this month is to track our nutrition and water intake. If you haven't joined the monthly challenge, I challenge you to at least take today and be mindful of your intake. Maybe you don't like logging on and using the trackers on Spark...then just write everything down. When it's on paper on or on the screen it is pretty hard to ignore! Have a successful day of being mindful.

Hugs,
wanda

Wanda & Shirl, always great to be mindful of how we speak and treat others. I had a wonderful opportunity to do that at a local hospital today during our support group and in the Angel Card Readings program.

Feb 17 Mindful Monday

It's Family Day here in Alberta, which means I don't have to go to work, I get to spend time with family! Let's make today a day where we are mindful of our attitudes and keep things positive.

When you say things to people...be MINDFUL of the tone of voice you use.
When you are chatting ... be MINDFUL of positive vs negative things being said. Don't allow yourself to get sucked into negative conversation.
When you are surrounded by others...be MINDFUL of opportunities to make someone's day with a positive spark.

Enjoy your day, it's a gift to you.

Hugs,
Wanda

Feb 3 Mindful Monday!

Your challenge today is to be mindful of what you are eating and what you are drinking. Challenge yourself to stay within your limits today and to get all your water into you.

Plan out your meals if that will help you stay on track and use visual hints to remind yourself of drinking your water or eating healthy.

How ironic. I just read my last post 11/11/13. And now, we are mindful of the same thing as we will be burying my mother in law on Friday. (She passed away Saturday, but we are waiting for military from Germany.)

If this was your last day, how would you spend it?

Today I want to challenge you to be mindful of your attitude. In all the hussle and bussle of preparation for Christmas, we sometimes tend to get a bit overwhelmed with all that we think has to yet be done. Make sure that you keep things in perspective and don't allow those negative vibes to over take your day.

Have a wonderful blessed day,
Hugs,
Wanda

I thought Mindful Monday was rather appropriate for today...Remembrance Day.

Take the time today to be mindful of all the freedoms that you have. Remember those that served and still serve our countries. Give thanks for the blessings that you have in your life and for the horrors that you do not. Be mindful.

Wanda

A little behind this week. Mercury in retrograde made my Monday a bit stressful. The RV slides wouldn't work so had to move program indoors at the hospital. The Paul Mitchell school folks forgot they were to offer manicures to patients at the hospital and didn't show up. SOOOO...I settled down in the library at the hospital's breast health center, took some deep breaths, and refocused on the blessings in my life.

Your challenge today is to be "mindful" of your attitude. How are you responding to what the day the brings to you? Are you being grouchy? Are you being respectful? Are you spreading a positive energy where ever you go? Sometimes it helps to take a moment before taking action on things that come your way and silently ask yourself the question" will this matter an hour from now, a day from now or next week?"

Have a wonderful day,
\Hugs,
Wanda

Well there was 3 g of it in my 1% millkfat cottage cheese I ate for lunch, 13 g in the yogurt I had for lunch, that's about 4 tsp. of sugar, I had a piece of bunt cake at the resident mtg, it had no frosting, but had some kind of juice poured over it and was made from a yellow cake mix, so probably had way more than I needed. I liked that information you shared, I also shared it with my DD. We do need to be more aware of what we are putting into our bodies, that's for sure. Great challenge.

This challenge is due to a program that my hubby and I watched on Sugar. Today I challenge you to really look at the labels on everything that you are planning on eating. 4 grams of sugar is the equal to 1 teaspoon of sugar. To most of us grams don't really mean a thing, but when you convert it to teaspoons which most of us understand, it is quite an eye-opener.

How low are you able to keep your sugar intake today?

Have fun.

I'm big on being prepared - it makes me less anxious! I prepared a dinner menu for the week so I don't have to scramble to decide what to make each day. I brought healthy snacks to work today. I left a pair of sneakers in my drawer at work so that I can take a walk at lunchtime.

Using today's Positive Quote of the Day:

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. Benjamin Franklin

How can you use this quote to be mindful on your journey to health today?


I have my Fill-a-meter visual all ready out where I can see it and have marked my water that I've had so far as well as I have tracked my breakfast intake.
I prepared some healthy snacks to take to work with me to store in my desk drawer for those munchie moments when everyone else is partaking of all the "goodies" that seem to make their way into our department.

Yay, Thank you Mauri for posting today's challenge. My brain was trying to figure out what to set as the day's challenge. This one is great.

I will be mindful of drinking my water (I've prepared a nice container of flavored water...cucumber, limes, lemons, oranges and mint). I will listen to my body and what it needs.

It's a holiday here in the U.S. I'm thinking it might be in Canada. Holidays are easy days to go off-track.

Be MINDFUL today of what you are eating and whether you are moving.

It is so much easier for me to forgive others than myself...but I always try to be balanced with understanding both the other person's role and mine. I have my mom to thank for that...and without acknowledging my role, as Wanda wrote, I can never truly have forgiven the other person.

Working on it today...

I think that I generally focus on forgiving others. I have to watch that I don't focus so much outwardly on others that I don't even acknowledge my part or guilt in any given situation. Playing the person who is justified in their anger. Dangerous way to be. It's a form of victimhood. So, today, I will be mindful of the good work of true forgiveness, which always seems to have an element of personal responsibility and self forgiveness attached to it.

Thanks for keeping me mindful, Wanda. Have a great Monday.

~Nancy~

March 28 Mindful Monday:

Thinking about today's quote of the day :

Forgiving is love's toughest work, and love's biggest risk. If you twist it into something it was never meant to be, it can make you a doormat or an insufferable manipulator. Forgiving seems almost unnatural. Our sense of fairness tells us people should pay for the wrong they do. But forgiving is love's power to break nature's rule. ~Lewis B. Smedes

Which do you find easier to do...forgive others or to forgive yourself for your part in the issue?


I think for me it's almost an equal thing. I find I mentally beat myself up over my role and although I may think I've forgiven others for their role/s, until I forgive myself, it's hard to let it go. Something I need to work harder on.

Hugs,
Wanda

I'm always aware of my body language and that of others...Took a 2 hour course on it back in the 1970s...always interesting to watch! Always love leaning in to show I really am listening to someone! That's my fave move!

I hope that my body language will convey that I am open to communicating with others, that's what I am going to try and show today and if someone needs a listen ear I'll lend it.

What is your body language telling others today? Remember that it is not only your words that convey meaning to those you come into contact with, your actions often speak louder.

Have a wonderful mindful Monday,

Find a word for the day that resonates within your spirit and live it mindfully today. Keep it foremost in your mind as you go about your day.

Feb 21 Mindful Monday.

Your challenge today is to be "mindful". Be aware of your thoughts, are they positive and uplifting or are they negative and keeping you in a negative pattern.
Remember that YOU have the choice of your thought patterns. You can choose to be negative or you can choose to be positive.

Have a wonderful day, mindfully enjoying each moment.

Hugs,
Wanda

Reading the challenge this late reminded me to review the day and I saw several moments where I was successful in creating those random acts. It made me feel good about my day. Thanks for helping me head to bed with my attitude in the right place!

Yep...those definitely count as random acts of kindness Lexie!

I briefly went outdoors today, quick trip to the bank and then to Costco. It's -35 with the wind chill, -24 temperature. Not a great day to be outdoors! I'll carry this challenge over to tomorrow.

I've taken to picking up poop scoop bags that people have filled and then left in the park instead of taking them to the bin. I think it is mostly people who leave them somewhere planning to come back for them, and then forgetting, or leaving the park by another route. It seems unlikely that someone would go to the trouble of bagging doggie-doo if they intended to then leave it behind instead of carrying it till they find a bin. :-)

Found one on Saturday, and one this morning.
I hope this counts as random acts of kindness. :-)
Hugs,

November 22 Mindful Monday

Being alive is wonderful, but being alive and aware is even better!

Take the time today to be aware/mindful of those around you. Hold the door open for someone whos hands are full, smile at the checkout counter, be patient,take the time to be generous with others. Random acts of kindness go a long way to lifting ones spirits.

I hope that I can get my brain on task. A lot of monkeys yapping and running around in there. Gonna have to tie 'em down one by one. That is the good work that I am about this morning. Mindfulness. In the moment. Finding my center. Thanks for the encouragement.

Mindful Monday...your challenge today is to be "mindful" of how your spoken word and body language appear to others. Are they in conflict with each other or are they working in sync?

Have a great day, listen to your guidance.

Mindful Monday...in honor of Mauri's word for 2009.

What are you being mindful of today?


I choose to be mindful of what goes in my mouth.
I choose to be mindful of others and how I can be of service.
I choose to be mindful of the blessing of motion that my body can achieve.
I choose to be mindful.

I was mindful to bring in to work my water and the healthy food for my meals this week.

I was mindful to start the day with an English Muffin and peanut butter.

I was mindful to climb stairs and take a walk.

I will continue to do so throughout the day.

It's Mindful Monday challenge time!

Definition of mindful: keeping in mind

Make today a "mindful" day. Be mindful of your body, your food, the words you use, your actions and reactions.


How have you been mindful today?


I have been mindful of the food that I have eaten, mindful about getting all my water in, mindful of my exercises.
I've also been mindful of how my actions and reactions may effect others. When I went in to work this morning, my lovely little santa that sits on my desk was lying in pieces. My supervisor left me a note to say she was sorry but she "killed my santa" by accident. I knew that she had not done it on purpose, accidents do occur, so was able to reassure her that things happen, no real harm done. And "no" she did not have to replace him.
