Do you have young children in your house? If not, borrow them from your friends or your adult children :-)
Children (especially less than 7 years old) are masters at mindfulness practice. They enjoy the present. Observe a five year old play with a cardboard box. In his (or her) imagination, the box takes whatever shape he wants. It could be a race car or a house. He can be immersed in it for hours together. The three lessons we can learn from children are
(1) Focus and enjoy the present - you cannot do anything about the past and don't be too worried about the future - it often turns out quite different what you imagined it will be.
(2) Use your imagination in strong and positive ways - Worry is a classic example of using your imagination in a negative manner. Enjoy and play regularly in your life
(3) Unconditional love - there are so many people who give you unconditional love. Your family, your friends and many of your co-workers. Accept and acknowledge this love in your life.
