3 Mindful Questions to Consciously Create Good Moments

What tone am I speaking in right now?

What feelings am I generating in this moment?

Who needs my support in this room?

These are three mindful questions to ask yourself to consciously create good moments.

Good moments don’t naturally exist, they’re naturally created by people: this includes you and me.

Think about the last holiday party you attended. The host put conscious thought into the party. She most likely planned a time, date, location, attendee list, activities, food, drinks and maybe a special surprise.

This experience was consciously created.

The way you speak has an impact on the people around you.

When you speak positively, others feel lifted.

When you speak negativity, others feel low.

The goal isn’t to be positive all the time. That’s not possible. This wouldn’t be honest.

The more you skew toward the positive, you’ll experience good moments more often.

What’s your definition of a good moment?

Here are ten good moments in my experience:

  • Sitting by a pond in stillness
  • Walking and talking with a good friend
  • Napping
  • Waking up from a nap
  • Petting a friendly cat or dog
  • Eating pizza
  • Laughing at a joke
  • Discovering an uplifting song on Pandora
  • Writing a blog post
  • Reading letters from my students and teachers

Good moments are simple. They’re not complex.

They don’t require an excess amount of money. They simply require full engagement in the present moment. Right here, right now.

Your good moments don’t need to be the same as mine.

Your good moments are yours.

Cherish those moments with your entire mind, heart, and body.

Keep asking the questions that matter.
