My Plan for Practicing Mindfulness

I tend to overcommit and find myself in situations when I am racing from one thing to the next. I find that this prevents me from truly living and enjoying my life and, I believe, this also keeps me from finding a mindful place that I need to be a good coach. As part of last week’s mind trap exercise, I committed myself to living in the moment by practicing mindfulness. Gibb’s Reflective Cycle looks like a very helpful model to lead myself through 6 stages of reflection: describing an experience, exploring my feelings in and with that experience, evaluating it (was it good or bad, felt good or not?), analyzing it (i.e., making sense of it), reaching a conclusion whether I acted the best way I could have acted, and coming up with a plan what to do next time I encounter a similar situation. I commit to using Gibb’s model not only after my next coaching encounter but also as a daily mindfulness routine. I will do this every morning with the help of a journal. I will check back in after a couple of weeks and report how this is going.

Regine, I so empathies with the feeling of racing from one thing to the next. Isn’t it funny when we start to notice the “downsides” of the strong drive and ambition that has gotten so far in life? I wanted to check in on how this commitment is going? Have you learned anything new about yourself or the world?
