Watering Mindfulness

My friend, Fair, grows fantastic tomato seedlings. They're whoppers by the time she brings her extras to me. Her secret, she says is to use fish emulsion every time she waters.

What makes our practice grow? Adding mindfulness every time we water ourselves.

Practice mindfulness with every glass of water, every glug from your water bottle.
Become aware of the sensation that leads to reaching for the water bottle.
Notice reaching, the feel of the bottle (plastic? metal? glass?).
Feel the water on your lips and in your mouth.
Notice swallowing.

Grow your mindfulness practice.
