Using a touch point to create a moment of mindfulness

By: Aileen Baxter

Decide on a touch point such as your watch or glasses, that you come into contact frequently.  Every time you touch that object stop what you are doing for a few seconds and pay attention to yourself and your surroundings. Try and be present in the moment, what emotions are you feeling?  What made you feel them?  Do you feel any physical sensations? What are the people around you doing? What sounds can you hear? Mindfulness doesn’t have to be a daily event; it can be practised at any time.
