I am getting into the habit of asking myself now and then, throughout an ordinary day 'Is there a simpler way to do this/think about this/respond to this?' While I was washing my hair the other morning I realised I wasn't there, in that moment, I was too busy planning the next ones. In my mind I was planning the rest of the day, making a list of the things I needed to do. I thought 'I am not actually living this moment, how mad is that?' I looked at the clear sunlight coming in the window, smelt the shampoo, enjoyed the feeling of the clear running water, massaged my head gently for a moment - this always makes me take a huge deep breath for some reason - felt the softness of the clean towel. Of course I still had to plan my day, but that moment was so luxurious and comforting - and I nearly missed it!!
