Afternoon reflection

As we age, we may worry more about our physical health, but our mental health is just as important.

Mindfulness and reflection practices promote physical and psychological wellbeing. This is not new, as people have been meditating since 5000 BC.

In simple words, mindfulness means being present and maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, emotions, and the environment around you.

Mindfulness can be practiced in many ways, but some methods have become popular for their clear benefits, including a daily reflection.

Below is an exercise to help you review your day, calm your mind and body, and set positive intentions for the next day. You can use the template to do the exercise, or just answer the questions.

Remember to acknowledge the good things in your life and reflect on joyful moments and connections. This will help you sleep better at night and wake up the next day with new ideas and insights. Remember to take it one day at a time – make each day meaningful and purposeful.
