Ever the optimist I sacrificed sleep for several attempts at seeing the aurora borealis last night but no luck. It's not impossible to see the lights this far south because they have been visible in Bath a couple of times in the last few years but there was complete cloud cover with an expectation of fog so it wasn't likely. Worth a try though!
Yesterday's Advent task was interesting. It was to do with practicing self-compassion and the associated task was, at the end of the day, to write down three things that I'd done well during the day (e.g. eaten a healthy meal, supported a friend in some way, completed a chore) with the aim to consider things from a positive point of view. I didn't find it as easy to do as I thought I would but do think it is something I'd benefit from doing regularly as, to quote the calendar "it helps to promote a happier and healthier mindset". Today's task is going to be enjoyed! It's to 'enjoy a hot drink', applying complete attention to every step of the experience. I make time to enjoy a hot drink regularly but not with the level of attention from the start of making the drink to the very last sip that this task is asking for.
Today there's nothing in the diary and all I'm sure of is that there will be naps ... see the first paragraph for the reason! Apart from that it'll be a slow, quiet day most likely reading or watching TV.
