Hey mama’s! Welcome to another episode at The Zen(ish) Mommy Podcast, where we introduce you to mindfulness tips you can incorporate into your daily life. Today, we talk about the pitfalls of black and white thinking, and the beauty of living in the grey. Listeners will hear how my mindfulness practice led me to realize the harmfulness of rigid thought patterns, and how I check in with myself on a daily basis to adjust my thinking.
I used to finish my day analyzing the wins and failures, always being left feeling empty. Mindfulness led me to realize the harmfulness of this rigid way of thinking.
“This idea of living in the grey means that something doesn’t have to be pass or fail.”
“Between black and white there is this beautiful area of the gray, and it’s beautiful there! There are so many possibilities, it’s inclusive, so what does it mean to live in the gray?”
Taking moments throughout the day, noticing the surroundings, and living in the grey. Check out our Emotional Check In episode to learn more about this intentionality. We hope you join us this week and take a moment to check out our pool of Mindfulness episodes to add to your tool kit.
