If you know me or even just follow my blog, you know I LOVE posting pictures via social media on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and my favorite, Instagram. I am picture-obsessed. Almost everything I do, from walking outside to my car to cooking dinner, I always have the urge to set up my surroundings, find the perfect lighting, and snap photos. So, you can only imagine how much I love posting pictures @vivieimpara on Instagram!
While perusing through Instagram last night, I found this awesome group I have become a part of called, “90 Days of Mindfulness.” Here participants can post pictures related to mindful living, i.e. living in the moment by cooking nutritious food, incorporating “me” time, journal writing, establishing a workout routine, or helping out in the community.
I’m sure you’ve seen challenges like #yogaeverydamnday #100daysofhappy or #100daysofhealthy and more to encourage healthy habits and a powerful community of like-minded people.
The purpose of #90daysofmindfulness is for participants to “share what they want to focus on and engage in a community where they can empower each other.” Check out #90daysofmindfulness and start participating in this community of mindfulness and positive encouragement.
To be completely aware, you need to show up and be present in the moment.
“Mindfulness is part of a much larger trend we’ve been observing called mindful living… it’s kind of a counter-trend to the past decade of overly stimulated, ADD-afflicted, tech-saturated culture that we’ve been living in. What was once the domain of the spiritual set has filtered into the mainstream as more people are drawn to this idea of shutting out distractions and focusing on the moment.” – Ann Mack, director of trendspotting at JWT, told the Huffington Post.
