To do

Today I attended mindfulness training. During what was supposed to be an exercise to focus solely on the physical act of breathing, I created the following mental task list.

TO DO (a partial list):

Be mindful
Worry less
Exercise more
Make time for friends
Spend time alone
Lean in
Be present at home
Go with the flow
Plan the work, work the plan
Drink less wine
Drink more water
Get more fresh air
Avoid sun exposure
Be more organized
Get more sleep
Get up earlier
Feel less guilt
Be better, generally speaking
Eat more leafy greens
Avoid starch and sugar
Find a creative outlet
Schedule free time
Stand instead of sit
Buy more comfortable shoes
Plant the garden
Play with the kids
Spend less time online
Blog more
Read a book
Write letters
Express gratitude
Remind Bryan that we’re nearly out of wine
Sign up for remedial mindfulness training

    Wow – your list is overwhelming! I agree on all fronts – especially “buy more comfortable shoes” !

  2. Wish I could replenish your wine. You should have this list whipped into shape yet this century . . .

    I wish you could, too!! This if, of course, very tongue in cheek. Seems like every time I turn around, there’s something new to master (and much of it seems contradictory). Mindfulness being the most recent.

  4. Haha! The contradictions on this list are hilarious and so true…
