Last week we joined the local tennis club as a family.
Despite being absolutely useless I LOVE it. I wake up every morning thinking whether I can fit a game in. And with who. Mum, Dad, Noah?…
When i’m not playing i’m thinking about how I can get better. How I can improve my playing.
When I am playing my mind is on the ball. I also can’t stop smiling – I feel totally happy.
And after a couple of weeks of tennis obsession I have decided that it is a really Mindful hobby.
When I am playing I am totally focussed and not thinking about anything else. I am in the moment enjoying myself.
If I meditate before I go then I focus so much more when I play. I love it even more.
And when I have finished I have a lovely clear mind.
Mindfulness and tennis are a great match! (poor pun! – sorry)
