Being mindful means being in the present,
rather than thinking about the past, or worrying about the future. It means
focusing on what you are doing right now – and really living that moment, in
vivid detail. It means revelling in what you can see, hear, taste, smell, and
feel. It means opening yourself up to the joy of the present moment.

massage or a facial; enjoying the vigorous bubbles of a jacuzzi; or the
pleasant heat of a steam room: it’s the perfect chance to be still, be present,
and be mindful.
If you can perfect this during your relaxing spa visit, you can then practise mindfulness once you leave, trying to keep your focus in the present, on what you are doing in this very moment.
Two of our favourite spas to
visit for a relaxing time are:
