• Refrain from unkindness - that is a lot.
  • Whenever you take a bath or shower, you can look at your body and see that it is a gift from your parents and their parents. As you wash each part of your body, you can meditate on the nature of the body and consciousness.
  • If you dread commuting, try changing your routine. Rather than taking the quickest route and means of transport, allow yourself more time, and walk or cycle part of the journey. If there's no option but a long session on public transport, read a book or newspaper, without musical accompaniment: wired music insulates you from life. See if you can work from home
  • Mindfulness is presence of mind or attentiveness to present experience without drifting away from it.
