In our family home, bath time with the kids is a time for being present with each other in our hectic go-go-go lives.
It’s loud with giggles and squeals.
It’s full of bubbles and splashes of water.
It’s filled with scents (current fave is the Root Beer Bubble Bath).
It’s filled with textures.
Nobody leaves dry (especially the clothed adults) but everyone (usually) leaves with a smile on their face.
Shower time for the adults in our house is much quieter… but it still involves fully engaging our senses! The mornings are a time for mom and dad to have our first mindful moment, setting the tone for the day.
Kids or no kids, you too can benefit from setting a mindful tone for the day, to lower your cortisol levels and awaken the senses for the day ahead.
How can you sprinkle your shower with mindful awareness?
Mindfulness practice doesn’t have to be quiet, and it doesn’t have to be done on your own. Mindfulness is about tapping into your senses and noticing what’s going on within you — mind+body+heart — and around you in your environment.
Gather your mindful showering tools and have a calm yet rejuvenating start to your day tomorrow. If you’re looking for more mindful living for real life tips, find @wholistichealthyyc on Instagram, or visit www.wholistichealthyyc.com.
