Look Up is an easy Christian mindfulness exercise. Yet it helps us to grow our perspective, gratitude and visual mindfulness.
How easy is it? Just two steps.
Step 1: Look up.
Step. 2: Give thanks for what you see.
When you deliberately look up, you notice many new things. I am short, so looking up sometimes lets me see things that taller people view everyday!
What’s up there? Roofs, treetops, interesting architecture, ceiling treatments, light fixtures, clouds of varying colors and shapes, birds and more.
This exercise improves our awareness of the world around us. And it builds our gratitude for our cozy inside spaces, our cities and neighborhoods and the glory of outdoors. It helps us to get outside of our interior worries.
Give it a try a few times a day, and see what happens!
