I’ve considered many options for categorizing posts to the Giggling Calamity arm of my blog, and mindfulness seems to be the best fit overall. The essence of Giggling Calamity posts is rooted in exploring how we perceive, experience, and alter the external world around us. This includes relationships, family roles, employment roles, masculinity, femininity, philanthropy, education, activism, etc. Not to be lost however is the simple fact that who we are dictates how we experience our environment, and for that reason, understanding who we are is vital to understanding the onslaught of external stimuli that confront us each day. That’s mindfulness. That’s why I’ve reposted this brief reminder about the importance of mindfulness originally published on Big Think. I encourage you to check it out.

Journaling is something we all aspire to at one time or another. Like exercise or eating well, however, journaling requires commitment to really be meaningful. As busy as we are these days, that commitment can be hard to come by. Therein lies the beauty of the one-sentence journal. It’s a great way to force yourself to reflect on the most memorable or meaningful aspects of your day in a concise and efficient manner. Try it. You’ll find it’s easy to do by simply making a note in evernote or some similar program and adding your brief reflections to the bottom each day. And contrary to the title of the exercise, you don’t have to confine yourself to just one-sentence. Good luck!
