CREATE INTERVALS TO BEGIN A PRACTICE OF MINDFULNESS FOR EVERY ACTIVITY THROUGHOUT THE DAY – Day 18: March 1, 2020

“You should try to maintain mindfulness
of every activity and perception through the day,
starting with the first perception
when you awake
and ending with the last thought
before you fall asleep.

 . . . . [T] ake it slowly
and let your abilities grow over time.

. . . . Dedicate a certain interval to mindfulness
then extend this mindfulness to other simple activities:
eating, washing, dressing, and so forth.

Some time during the day,
you can set aside fifteen minutes
or so to practice the observation
of specific types of mental states:
pleasant, unpleasant, and neutral feelings,
for instance; or the hindrances, or thoughts.
The specific routine is up to you.
The idea is to get practice at spotting the various items,
and to preserve your state of mindfulness
as fully as you can throughout the day.”

Henepola Gunaratana,  Mindfulness in Plain English
