Since the divorce, I feel like I’ve done a better job of living with macro-mindfulness; I no longer live my life on autopilot. I still have room (a LOT of room!) for improvement in the area of micro-mindfulness, being present in the smaller moments. This is especially true for me at work, where it is so easy to get swept up in the frenetic pace of a middle school. I’m going to see if I can find a way to sneak in a version of the technique below at least a couple times throughout the day. Maybe a placard on my desk that reads, “Don’t bother the teacher; she is re-centering and will be back with you shortly” ?
