Mindfulness is this idea that you confront the emotions that you’re having right when they are happening instead of pushing them away. That has a lot to do too with the things you do on a regular basis. “Oh I need to call my mum, oh I need to make that appointment”. Instead of saying “Oh I’ll do it tomorrow” and letting it fester, creating this big ball of anxiety, to really confront it head on. — Lucy Engelman
Gazing at the clouds is a pointless activity, and that is exactly why it’s so important. — Lucy Engelman
