    Thank you, @Jo L, I've come across this recommendation at the right time.
  4. LIVE Q&A on Zoom with filmmaker Rob Beemer on June 4 at 7:00 PM eastern (4:00 pm pacific) > Register here < Additionally, the documentary is available online, at the same link. When you visit the page, there is an option to register for the Q&A separately, even if you do not choose to view/rent the documentary.
  5. For those of us who are living alone, I felt this was a welcome invitation to be in tune and comfortable with yourself as company. For those of us in a city, to welcome a new type of silence and stillness (without having to take a trip to a rural area to experience). I've been reenergized creatively because I've had a significant mental rest from noise pollution, social responsibilities, etc.
  6. I've recently started a gratitude journal - except I use a voice transcription app. I don't enjoy writing unnecessarily (due to wrist inflammation) so I avoided a traditional journal before now. But speaking out loud is actually soothing for me during isolation so I'm enjoying this new-to-me practice!
  7. @Mindfulness With Robyn thank you for this share! you've actually inspired me to do something similar since I've just come across a fresh pack of post-its in one of my junk drawers Like @Gillian Sanger I usually prefer online options, like Trello (I actually use Realtimeboard, a web based white board), but with all the benefits of online organization comes the downside -- my avoidance tendencies -- they're so easy to completely ignore or forget about. I think your post-it solution is exactly what I need to keep my focused on what I actually would like to accomplish short term. Congrats on knocking out those post-its each day, Robyn! I'm applauding you from California Absolutely! I didn't realize it (out of sight, out of mind) but just like @Mindfulness With Robyn I've been using this time to approach a list and as I started spring cleaning I realized I have several junk drawers! Actually, junk cabinets, too! It's a happy-accident though because I'm finding tons of unused art supplies and now is the perfect time to start putting them to use again to help me calm my mind (something I've been struggling with while I self isolate in a big city). @Paige PIlege have you found anything long forgotten that you might have use for again (like I did with my forgotten art supplies), or mostly things you'll let go? I'm noticing a lot of people are using this time to embrace minimalism, too - so I'm curious about your experience.
  8. I had Day 5 in my email archives (pasting below). I hope this helps! Day 5: Wishing Ourselves and Others Well Integrated Practice: When you see the next person you will interact with today, take a moment to say in your mind, "I wish for you to be happy" as you greet them. Repeat this as many times as you remember to do so today. Reflection Question: Q.) How did the practice of wishing others well impact your interactions? Q.) Did it shift your mood in any way? Did it impact the quality of your attention?
  9. Honestly I'm finding so much peace in the stillness in the normally chaotic city I live in. Spending a lot more time sitting in these new quiet moments, reflecting and trying to appreciate the small benefits the earth is getting during this time, vs worrying. Also spending more time connecting with family and friends (by phone and video)
  10. Completely agree. I allow myself to check the news once per day for the important updates I need to know, and I only check the official local and national sources. In the world of social media where the news is being flung towards you from every direction, it can definitely be difficult. Applauding you for taking a news fast. I came here today to find exactly this! Thank you so much, Gillian!
  11. Dedicated office spaces for quiet and reflection.
  12. Thanks for sharing this here, I would have totally missed it.
  13. Yes, actually! I had to make it extra difficult because I also wanted to take a train instead of driving. So I decided on Dunsmuir, CA. - mostly for the proximity to nature.
  14. This resonates - my mother was that way so of course the minute I moved away from home I had stuff everywhere, just because I could. Fast forward decades later and I'm happy and content with whatever my space ends up transforming to. I do enjoy less in my calm zones, but I also enjoy lots of stuff in my creative spaces!

    I love these coloring pages. Wondering if you created them yourself, or if there was a coloring book with these pages that you'd suggest. I especially enjoy the vibe of the ducks & bunny
  16. Hi Stephanie! I love your approach. I didn't set out to create my own routine (I was just exploring, initially) but as I set upon this journey of learning and practicing, I naturally settled into one over time - and I've become comfortable with that changing organically, too. Welcome to the community
  17. While planning a mini holiday I decided I wanted to explore destinations that were prime spots to restore and revitalize this spring. That led me to ask the internet if cities could be mindful - and I actually came across some interesting stuff. Sharing here in case anyone is interested. There is also a book referenced in the article, however, it relates to London only. Although these cities are all over the world, I think the framework can be used to make your own evaluations of locations near you for quick weekend trips - which is what I plan to use it for. https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/02/worlds-most-mindful-cities-top-10/ From the article... Their ranking of the 10 most mindful cities The framework
  18. I may have shared this before in another thread, though a major growing pain for me was feeling like I couldn't practice mindfulness because committing to a routine is difficult for me, and I felt I was adding too many tasks to my day - how would I find the time, I won't have time to do it "right" - which kicked my anxiety in gear (anxiety was originally what got me here) But I kept trying and practicing and eventually allowed myself to realize that practice could happen throughout my day if I just made little adjustments - like practicing while making tea, mindful walking (shared that over in Wins), and so on. Definitely had to let go of expecting perfection
  19. So I guess my mother was right - a cluttered space makes for a cluttered mind. I'm really starting to understand minimalism in the home - which is hard for a maximalist (decor) like me to come to terms with! But in those spaces of my home that I tend to use for practicing mindfulness less helps me to be more. Saying goodbye to clutter in my bedroom really helps with my evening practices so I can more easily drift off to sleep.
  20. Oh, I believe @Paige PIlege has projects for this thread as well.
