Another values-based activity that can be done with low energy is gardening. I’ll admit I have never really been into gardening but after keeping my flower alive (and I mean, also bringing it back to life during the heat waves this summer), I’m inspired to have more of a garden going forward.
Mindfulness doesn’t always have to be formal meditation. We can practice any time, anywhere, doing pretty much anything. It just requires us to engage in the activity we are doing with full awareness and presence. To live this way can have real benefits for mental and physical health.
