No time for oms homes

Kudos to Gretchen Rubin author of the Happiness Project. I read her book earlier this year and adopted several of her suggestions.

One suggestion absolutely changed my life by making me more mindful. It’s easy! To reduce stress during any tedious project add the word ‘meditation’ after the action.

For example, sitting in traffic becomes ‘sitting in traffic meditation’ and ironing clothes becomes ‘ironing clothes meditation.’ It helps me appreciate the value of slowing down and focusing in the moment on a single task through completion. I’m much calmer now doing things that previously caused me to break out into hissy fits.

Only thing it DOESN’T work for is the actual act of meditation–sitting to meditate m_____n.
