Focus for today: I choose to turn off my 'automatic pilot', and develop more awareness of what I am doing.
In order to gain more insight into what we are doing and why, it is important to develop a quality of mindfulness. Mindfulness is about developing a continuous awareness of all the tasks we do and the thoughts we have during the course of a normal day.
We should pay the most attention to what we do automatically -- like drinking a cup of tea, going to the lavatory, washing the dishes, running up and down stairs. So often we do not have our minds on what we are doing -- our bodies are doing one thing and our minds are on a totally different tack, which creates disharmony.
In order to turn off our 'automatic pilot', we need to develop more awareness of what we are doing, to do things more slowly, so that we can see each part of the routine action more clearly. If we become conscious of each change and reaction that takes place in the body, we can see things as they arise rather than after they have happened.
