If you are a regular reader you will know two things about me...
- I love food (healthy vegan food to be precise!)
- I love exploring what it means to 'get curious' about life.
This is a post about the latter, as earlier today I found a TED talk that I felt summed up so beautifully what it is to be curious AND maybe more importantly the huge benefit this can have for you in your life. For me personally, this is an area of continous growth and exploration and is something that infuses my work with all my clients.
Check out the video below (it's 9 minutes long, so perfect so a mini time out with a cup of tea) but I wanted to share my musings on the key areas below.
"What will you discover when you are curiously aware"
(I wanted to jump up and down around the room shouting yes, yes, yes when I heard that! ha)
Mindfulness is just about getting really interested in getting close and personal with what's actually happening in our bodies and minds from moment to moment. It's the willingness to turn towards our experience and not away from it. This willingness is supported by curiosity. When we get curious we step out of our fear-based habit patterns and step into 'being'.
Notice the urge... Get curious... feel the joy of letting go... repeat!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the curiosity and how are you can bring this habit into your own life. If you're inspired and want to go all out then ping me an email and let's really get this conversation really flowing!
