Wait­ing

Canadian Living - - Mindfulness -

“Wait­ing at the doc­tor’s of­fice, for ex­am­ple, usu­ally of­fers a nice op­por­tu­nity to prac­tise pa­tience. While an­tic­i­pat­ing your turn, you can get fa­mil­iar with just be­ing by sit­ting qui­etly and notic­ing your own breath, your own pres­ence.” —Emma Mills

“Be aware of any sen­sa­tions of dis­com­fort, im­pa­tience or frus­tra­tion; what phys­i­cal or emo­tional re­ac­tions do they bring up? No­tice where this takes place in your body and how it makes you feel. Let these sen­sa­tions pass and re­turn to your breath.” —Emily Thring
