Mindfulness diary 31

Mindfulness diary 31   I had a very peaceful day off on Saturday.  I did a lot of things but I wasn't manic.  First I made plum and pecan danish for myself.  At weekends I give myself permission to have something different for breakfast.  Sometimes I choose my normal eggs and sometimes I have the [...]

Mindfulness diary 30

Mindfulness diary 30   I didn't have a Mindful breakfast today.  I ran out of time and so I just grabbed and ate on the run.  As a result my mood and my day was affected.  I already knew that how I started my morning impacted on my whole day but it was interesting to [...]
