This nice little video from Sharon Salzberg arrived in my inbox this morning. It describes a simple practice of bringing mindfulness and kindness into the act of standing in line (or queueing, as we say in my native Britain).
This is something I do a lot. It transforms what can be a frustrating experience into one that’s grounding and joyful. Give it a try.
This is great advice. It is something I often try to do. Similar to standing in line, I practice mindfulness while waiting at restaurants for a table, while waiting for my order to be ready, and in short periods where I am waiting for someone to clear out from something that I need to grab.
