Once the house is neat and clean, and all your things are in order, take a slow-motion bath. Afterwards, prepare and drink tea. You might read your favorite book or write letters to close friends. Afterwards, take a walk to practice breathing. While reading a book or writing letters, maintain your mindfulness, don't let the text or letter pull you away to somewhere else. While reading the book, know what you are reading; while writing the letter, know what you are writing.
/Thich Nhat Hanh "The Miracle Of Mindfulness"/
