Christian Mindfulness Exercise #7: Refocus During Transitions

This exercise is simple, if hard to remember when we are distracted. We try to center ourselves as we move from place to place, event to event.

We can say: I am calm, peaceful and aware of the presence of God as I enter this home/door/time/event. Using the ringing of the telephone or the sound of a text message has a moment to pause and refocus also helps.

If you have a time of day that’s particularly hard for you … which I nicknamed the arsenic hour when I was a young single mother … having an alarm on the phone to remind you to center can make a big difference.
