Are You Fully Engaged?

07/27/10 – 5,393 Steps

Good morning Mintdom,

Only steps tracked yesterday – yikes!  Nice thing about doing this blog is that I probably would have gone days without realizing this sort of thing.  It is so easy to get off track!
Last year, I read this book called The Power of Full Engagement.  This is not to be confused with Power of Focus (which I had a difficult time getting through).  The author maintains that we are more productive when we take breaks during the day, and especially get away from our desks during lunch.  He recommends that with big executives even.  This past month, I have discovered that this is true.  Since I got Minty, I have been going home for lunch to feed her and play with her a little so her day is not so long.  I am fortunate to live 5 minutes from work.  I have noticed that taking breaks DOES make a huge difference in my day.  When I get back to work in the afternoon, I am eager to go again.  I feel rejuvenated! I am accomplishing a lot more during my day!

AffirMINTion: I fully engage in all that I do.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

“In basketball – as in life – true joy comes from being fully present in each and every moment, not just when things are going your way. Of course, it’s no accident that things are more likely to go your way when you stop worrying about whether you’re going to win or lose and focus your full attention on what’s happening right this moment.”  -Phil Jackson

My mom is fully present when she comes home for lunch, I can tell, and I like it!

Life is Minty Fresh!

Waiting for my mom to come home
