Aside

attention, intention

I am a very organized person. This is part of being a minimalist. I set goals and I look for outcomes.
Also a part of minimalism is mindfulness. If I am consciously curating what I need and don’t need during the day then I am paying attention.
For example, I am ‘listening’ to my body while sitting at the computer. I notice that my neck and shoulders are stiff. What is happening? Sometimes my posture slips. Sometimes it is stress. I recall that I have not taken a break. I need to stretch. I know that stretching in the morning allows me to feel comfortable at my desk.
My goal is to do this before I sit down each day. My intention is to honour my body, to care for me.
