Vidya’s Thursday Tip
Take a Mindful Pause Now
To channel your efforts from reaction to response
When you face a challenge or want to appreciate a moment of joy, it helps to take an intentional pause.
Pause: stop what you are doing.
Breathe: take slow deep breaths.
Observe: your body’s sensations, thoughts, emotions.
Name: what you observed. No explanations.
Proceed: carry on with your day.
Repeat this process as often as you need.
You will feel calmer and be more present in the moment.
