Mindful Living: 10 Tips for a Mindful Home

While working on a design for a client and sifting through some photos on my computer I came across something I’d saved who knows how long ago, but when it popped up on my screen, I smiled.

Last night I sat and wrote a post for about an hour and a half.  It was getting late.  I was quickly getting sleepy and my thoughts were dragging on like a bad dream that you can’t get out of.  In the interest of not boring everyone to death and saving a little face I decided to save it until this morning instead of publishing it.  Upon opening it again this morning I decided that was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a while and quickly hit the “trash” button.

The next thought that crossed my mind was, “Now what?”.  I decided not to sweat it and figured either something would come to me or I just wasn’t meant to write today.

And now we’ve come full circle to the image I saw while working on my client’s design.  This image contains a simple list of “10 Tips for a Mindful Home”, written by Karen Maezen Miller.  What I like about it is that they are simple things that serve as simple reminders when we get caught up in day-to-day life.

If you like these, I also encourage you to check out Karen’s website, blog and books.  Honestly, I haven’t read her books yet, but I have them on the top of my list to read next.

I hope you enjoy these.  I’m off to grab a copy off the printer so I can hang it on my fridge.
