52 Ways To Enjoy Robin Hood’s Bay: #14 Enjoy Robin Hood’s Bay The Mindful Way
1. Switch Off
We know in this day and age it’s difficult to completely turn off our mobile phones it’s our work, life line to the outside world, it’s a book or magazine, it’s our entertainment, our camera and so much more. If daily life won’t let you completely turn off your phone compromise and turn off all your notifications at least. Alternatively, why not plan at least one hour a day of your vacation or staycation where you completely turn off your phone or leave it where you can’t see it, hear it, touch it or be distracted by it. Make mindfulness work for you a little bit at a time.
Take time to rest and recharge, enjoy a lie in and switch off your phone before you go to bed and try not to turn it on until after you have eaten breakfast. Enjoy the softness of the pillows, the cosiness of the duvet and enjoy the peace, quiet and the calm.
Take time to talk to each other about your day, your plans, your favourite bits of the holiday, your experiences, adventures and discoveries.
When you talk take the time to really listen to others and do just that, talk and listen. No Phone, no distractions just quality time together talking and listening to each other.
5. Enjoy You Time
Take the time to do something for you, plan your own bit of the day to do something you enjoy. Do something that makes you happy, relaxed and helps you switch off from everything. Meditate, take a bubble bath, read for enjoyment not necessity, find your own quiet corner to sit, walk, anything as long as it’s yours.
6. Eat Mindfully
When on vacation or staycation eat what you fancy, what makes you happy but don’t just eat for fuel. Eat for enjoyment, taste local flavours but when you eat them do just eat, enjoy every morsel without distractions. Put the phone to one side and just enjoy.
7. Connect With Your Surroundings
