Great article, and a timely reminder, with Spring upon us, to give our homes some mindful attention.
I find I realise my gratitude for my home, when I'm wiping the benches or cleaning the windows in a mindful state.

I agree, dshar111. Also, I remind myself to feel grateful for the opportunities for functional exercise as I move around, clean house, and think about different muscles being used and how they are used. I feel that my mother’s long, healthy life was due, in part, to cleaning her own home until she died at 89. We are so fortunate if we have a home to clean.

Putting a seedling in the ground seeing/feeling the soil really seeing the tiny hole along with stones worms dry wet all what is....then the plant. This was a great extension of what I was exploring in yoga teacher training.....I so enjoy passing on to others at different times. Lovely article.....
