As I began my Hygge journey a few years ago, I would often see a reference to mindfulness in the literature. Matthew Sockolov’s book “Practicing Mindfulness: 75 Essential Meditations,” has become an essential tool in my Hygge toolbox.
The book was inspired by his own practice and the many people who supported him through the years. This touched my heart.
Through his readings, I realized that one of my personality characteristics kept me in a constant state of disconnect and anxiety. When family/ friends had a problem or challenge I would immediately go into the “fix it” mode! “Letting Go of Fixing” #75 opened my eyes and provided a 10 minute exercise which has allowed me to redirect my thoughts when I find myself stuck on someone else’s problem.
If you practice “Mindfullness,” I’d love to hear from you. How has it benefited your daily life? Is there a particular exercise that you practice to release stress and anxiety?
