Using our phones to inspire some mindful moments

By: Aileen Baxter

When it comes to being mindful our smartphones can get in the way of our best intentions. We sit down to focus on our breathing and our phone pings with the latest notification.

Instead of getting annoyed let’s use our phones as inspiration for some mindful moments.

Every time you pick up your phone this week, bring awareness to what you are doing and why. Perhaps you are searching for the best way to get to lunch or looking at social media because you have 5 mins spare. Whatever it is try and do it mindfully, bringing a level or thoughtfulness that combats the unthinking compulsion to pick up your phone. Maybe spending time thinking about your phone you will be more conscious each time you use it.
