This is an idea that I’ve stumbled across in different books and clips over the last few months. It’s getting to the point where I feel it’s chasing me, at least until I write about it. So here it is…
Can you design your perfect day, then do it?
Not too long ago, I wrote about my own change in mindset when it came to weekend relaxation. For a long time, I’d been hell-bent on giving myself a rest and doing nothing, without actually acknowledging that this didn’t make me feel good. I’m happy to say that since then, my weekends have become more about active relaxation (with a good dose of lounging about thrown in) and as a result, I actually feel happy and re-energised at the end of them.
I mention this because it fits in nicely with this task, which is probably best left for a weekend.
So… think about it. How will your perfect day start? What will you do? Where would you go? Who will you go with? What will you see, hear, touch, taste, smell?
Focus on mindfully experiencing all that you do, without feeling the need to book something outrageously expensive or share every moment with near-strangers on Facebook. Keep it just for you.
When you’re fully engaged in the present moment then you can find as much joy walking barefoot on your own back garden, as you might wandering around a stately home.
Just focus on how you want to feel and think about what pursuits might help you achieve those feelings.
Start planning now and have a great weekend! xx
