Stop and Smell the Roses

Stop and Smell the Roses

I love gardening and all things related to flowers and plants.  As I walk around Boston I am often wowed by the incredible public gardens and beautiful brownstone front gardens.  Instead of simply admiring the flowers as I walk by, I stop and literally sniff them.  I can always benefit from an opportunity to slow down and foster mindfulness during a busy day.  Stopping to smell flowers is a great reminder to take in my surroundings and appreciate the beauty of nature and passing of the seasons.  Even in winter I try to take time to admire shrubs covered in snow or seed pods sprinkled on the white ground.

What do you do to cultivate mindfulness in your everyday activities?
