Dwelling on life

#413 On #day25 of placement I went to visit the #hospitalchaplains for the morning to learn about their work. We began with a #spiritualitysession for nurses and then went to visit some patients on the wards. Something that is used extensively are #mindfulness techniques. The spirituality session ended with us being given a small stone to focus our senses around as we left all other thoughts behind. There is something incredibly powerful about purposefully focusing on one thing – so #relaxing! Everything else can pale into insignificance. It made me wonder whether the things that I am so concerned with now will still occupy my mind in a week or a month or a year. If not, are they worth #dwelling on now?
