Fun Monday Challenge #4 : New Things Through Mindful Gazing

As usual Lani Gerity brights up Mondays and shares great ideas that promote creativity, positive thinking and connections to the world around us! Today she reminds us about mindfulness in terms of looking for new things within the moment…An exciting process of discovering and learning improving our attention…check out her fantastic post over at 14 Secrets with links to great info about the research of Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer and a great post about the power and excitement of looking mindfully at the sky in search for the stars!

Here is this week challenge:

“Go out your door and find five new things, or find five new things about the person you are closest with (or the person you are least close with). This should result in interest, excitement and elevated positive brain chemistry. Try working these new things into an art piece. ”

It’s such an interesting approach to extend to everyday life…This kind of mindfulness is really energetic and reminds us that there are so many perspectives and nuances in life and paying attention just brings new insights:)

So here we go….my adventure for this challenge….
