Be Mindful - Mindfulness

Mindfulness: Observe a flower

Observe a flower


We can bring a quality of mindfulness to any activity, from going for a walk, or doing the washing up, to having a cup of tea. This exercise focuses on looking at a flower. It can help improve observation and concentration skills, and enrich our experience of being in the present.

We recommend that you have a flower to hand - whether it's one you've bought or one outdoors.  A flowering house plant is great as you will see it daily and be reminded of this mindfulness practice.


Any health warnings?
