mind-dishwashingIt sounds like hooey but mindful dish-washing is a thing. In fact, it was found to decrease the level of stress by 27%, while the feeling of inspiration increased by 25%. If you think about the practice of meditation, countless studies have celebrated meditation as an unparalleled technique for stress relief. While washing dishes, observe the smell of the dish-washing soap, notice your breath, observe the sound of the water. These are all mindful observations in the moment. This practice of mindful dish-washing kills two birds with one stone: cleans dishes and clears your head. Watch this  video to see if mindful dish-washing is for you.
