Last week we talked about ‘alone’ time for tea moments. Another way of reflecting is through observing – observing all – being connected to all through relaxed attentive watching.
Tea moments give you the perfect opportunity to sit back and truly observe your surroundings. Why is this important? You are giving your mind and your eyes something different to focus on. Changing your focus for a few moments allows your thoughts to simmer and recharge. We have all heard the old saying; a change is as good as a rest.
While you are sipping your tea observe those around the office – writing, working on the computer, talking on the phone. You’ll notice individual clothing styles, expressions, sounds, odours, etc.
Another great place to have a cup of leaf tea in your Libre and observe is at café, mall or on a bus – take your tea to go. Allow your mind to see all and enjoy the nuances )
Observe your Surroundings & Reflect
- What do you reflect on?
- What do you notice?
- What images attract you?
- Who and how are the people around you?
- Do they like crafts?…:) and on, and on
Try out this video now (Sonia Gil’s ‘People Watching’ at a Café in Paris) for people watching how many different images do you notice – and now watch again.
Enjoy your tea moment and observe. Comment on what you love to observe and why – share here for one our feature teas this week.
“Observations often tell you more about the observer than the observed.”
― Chris Geiger
The more we practice our observation skills the better we become in solving our own everyday challenges.
