The Mindful Dog Eats

As I was working on the course curriculum for Mindful Living's "Healthy Relationship to Body & Food", I coincidentally gave Prudence a new kibble for breakfast. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are notorious for being picky eaters, and she's no exception. In her nearly two years of life, I've probably donated more food to the Humane Society that she refuses to eat than she's consumed in that time. This morning, however, her pickiness interested more than frustrated me given the topic in which I was immersed.

Mindful, even joyful, moments

It can be hard to find joyful awareness amidst the stressors of everyday life. How often have you said, "This was a terrible week for me"? Whether it be bleak winter weather, colds or flu, work responsibilities, anything at all, reflecting on recent times can feel overwhelmingly negative. I stumbled upon a method that brings joy and perspective to my life. Maybe it will work for you, too! When I encounter something that brings a smile to my face, I take a picture with my phone. My goal is at least one photo per day.
