Think about the last time you had to walk some distance to get somewhere. What was going on in your mind during that walk? Were you pondering what events would unfold at that destination? Were you replaying and analyzing a past event in your head? Or were you truly present in the moment during that walk–experiencing the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations of that experience? If you answered “yes” to either of the first two questions and “no” to the last question, a daily mindfulness exercise is an activity you may want to supplement into your life. Andy Puddicombe states that taking just 10 minutes of doing nothing–simply experiencing the world around you–can make you a much more mindful person.
