A Challenge for March – Mindful Minute – Daily Intentions

March 4, 2024

The theme for March in the Action for Happiness Calendar is about being Mindful, providing daily prompts on how we can be more mindful and present in each day. I shared the calendar in my post Mindful March – Action for Happiness, you can click on the link and download the calendar from that post.

A Challenge for March – Mindful Minute – Daily Intentions

I have been participating in the Mindful March Challenge hosted by Shamas Alidina. Each day I receive an email which is divided into a Mindful Minute, Going Deeper and Incorporating Mindfulness into your Daily routine.

If you would like to participate visit Shamas’ website – https://www.shamashalidina.com/mindfulness-challenge

I decided to share my own version of Mindful Minutes – Daily Intentions and it is my intention to share a daily reel or post to my Instagram account which is also linked to my Facebook page. If you use Instagram I’d love you to follow along and participate @womenlivingwellafter50

Here is the intention for Day 1 to get you started……

Mindful Minute - Daily Intentions Day 1

Will you take a Mindful Minute to set the Daily Intention and follow through?

    Hi Sue – what a positive and lovely approach to the month. I’m not on IG but I love that this is such a pleasant counterbalance to all the competitiveness I see on social media. x

    I love this, Sue. I just came back from a walk where I slowed down and truly looked at the nature around me with curiosity. I was rewarded with many small wonders, of course, and then I was surprised by a bald eagle. I know we have them in Utah, but I’ve never seen one person in the wild before. It was so cool. I will follow along throughout the month on IG. Thanks again for hosting the #WWWhimsy.

      Oh that would have been so cool to see a bald eagle, Christie. It is lovely taking our time. I was looking at the clouds the other day and it reminded me of you as you’ve posted photos of clouds before. So much wonder around us. x

    I’m enjoying following along on this one x

    I was walking fast today…and I said…”hey slow down”…because I needed to and it was much more mindful that way. Good reminder to us all Sue. Thanks for hosting while Min is ‘leave’ for the reasons we know.

      Hi Denyse, yes I have to remind myself that there is no rush on my walk. I need to soak up my world. Hope you are going okay. x

    What a great idea… I’m off to check out your instagram!

      Hope you enjoy Mindful Minute, Sammie x

    Good for you! I can tell you I’d probably fail to open the emails by about day 4. I do like the idea…and it could be exactly what I need….but busy month ahead and lots of time offline with trips away so will just try to be in the moment

    • Reply Sue Loncaric March 12, 2024 at 11:16

      I hear you Lydia, we receive so many don’t we. Even if you just glimpse and Instagram post occasionally it might just be at the time you need to be reminded to be mindful. x

    I love hearing from you and your comments are important to me
