Everyone needs a little escapism in their lives; whether it’s perusing Instagram or nestling in for some Netflix, we are all for occasional blobbing out! But if you were to add up all the ‘in between’ moments in your day, you might find that the bulk of this time could be used to incorporate some mindfulness practices based on the 5 senses – significantly improving your Mental Health and helping you savour the special moments your day can bring.
These days, we are constantly distracted by the sound of a phone notification, advertising messaging, excessive media consumption, multitasking – and it’s desensitising our senses. To combat this we have come up with some ideas for each day of the working week to recenter and keep you in tune with yourself. It’s about noticing the world around you, taking your time to cherish and seek out activities that make life more pleasurable.
We will be Instagramming some of our 5 sense explorations this month – join us by simply tagging @happylocalapp!
