La giornata in 6 parole

Vivi meglio

Ogni giorno, carta e penna e scrivi in 6 parole qualcosa che rappresenta quella giornata. Sembra banale, ma non lo è per nulla. Voglio provare a svolgere questo esercizio usando una vecchia agenda che attende da 3 anni di essere usata. Lo spunto viene da The art of mindful reading:

Il bello di scrivere

Media & Social media

First, I love the challenge of developing a thought into a cohesive idea.  The idea, once generated, must be developed into a concept, a story built on a foundation of words.  Most importantly, it must end as a finished product which is worthy of reading.

There is no wrong way to do the pages. You simply keep your hand moving across the page, not pausing to take what I call “mental cigarette breaks.” It is as though you are sending the universe a telegram: “this is what I like, this is what I don’t like…” Implicit in this, “please help me.” If the pages are meditation, they are also a potent form of prayer.

Le trasferte fanno saltare la mia routine e poi faccio fatica a riprendere. Per tutto gennaio non ho perso un colpo e ho completato un quadernetto che attendeva da più di un paio d’anni di vedere un po’ di inchiostro. Oggi riprendo.… Continua a leggere
