Listening to yourself with a compassionate ear is another Christian mindfulness exercise that ultimately draws us closer to God. But the interior noise can be deafening.
When this happens, the Three Things exercise can help us to focus our attention, reduce restlessness and add calm. Stretch or drink some water before getting started. Then:
- Note three things that you see.
- Note three things that you hear.
- Note three feelings that you have.
It can be that simple to restore some clear thinking.
