It's been fun.
The Mindfulness Journal is available from Kmart for just $9. This great little book is full of mindful exercises and quotes. It is beautifully presented in full colour and would make a great gift. You could do a new mindful exercise each day in five to ten minutes. I love it!

Everyone should practice mindfulness - the world would be a happier place.
