I needed a mission

Sunday, a day of rest and recuperation.

I sometimes use it as a day to tidy my mind, as usually reflected in tidying the house.  Somewhere between the dust and the cobwebs I realised what I really needed was a mission…

    Good idea to set aside specific time to clear ones mind. When I was younger and had more time I used to do this. At the time did not realise I was doing it and I really do think it’s what we humans do naturally. The other week I meditated of sorts for the first time and felt really refreshed afterwards. Do you have any tips? May be

    Last year I set some personal goals and targets. No surprise, but achieved those that I dedicated time and worked on. I really should do a mind map and get back to these.

      Hi Dave,

      I think it’s important to set aside mind clearing time. I try to do a session daily by going for a 60 min walk in the morning. It’s a great time for me to reflect and think about my goals. I also use some of the time to think about the day ahead and what I want to accomplish for that day. Sounds like you’re a man that’s strapped for time, so one idea might be to get up 30 minutes earlier than you normally would and use that as your quiet think time. Another thing to try is carving out 10 minutes in the day to clear your mind and then another 10 minutes in the evening (if you can longer then 10 minutes then go for it, other-wise work with the 10 minutes).
