July Anti-Boredom Month – Mindfulness & Flow – Day 14 – Breaking Routines & Pandemonium Day

Good Morning Yogis! We are in the middle of a special Santosha and Mindfulness Summer Fun Month to align with July’s Anti-Boredom Month.

Today is also Pandemonium Day. This holiday is primarily in honor of not only embracing chaos when it occurs (which ties in with both Aparigraha / Non-Attachment and Ishvara Pranidhana / Surrender practices). Now, of course nobody wants their life to be chaotic… but it’s a fact of life that bad things happen, and all we can truly control is our own reactions to negative situations. So, if anything chaotic happens today, try to go with the flow remembering today is Pandemonium Day.

However, today’s practice is about introducing a little fun chaos into our own lives, by examining and breaking our daily routines. Blindly following your daily routine without any room for spontaneity lends itself to mindlessness and numbness rather than immersing yourself in the present moment.

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to try today’s Anti-Boredom / mindfulness / flow Activity: Introducing some fun chaos to our day! Perhaps add a self-care practice to your morning such as yoga, or take a calming bath instead of a shower. Maybe take a different route to work, or finally pop into a restaurant or shop you’ve noticed and been intrigued by on your trip. Or maybe go all the way and take a personal day, be spontaneous, and do something you have always wanted to do. Whatever is a meaningful way for you to break free from your daily routine, and add some creative chaos to your day. If you need more ideas, check out this list.

Today is a simple Fun Practice. Check out this month’s Introduction for more on mindfulness, flow, and Tea Ceremony – my recommended substitute practice for any suggested daily Fun Practice this month you do not want to try. We will have 31 different practices and activities to at minimum beat boredom for Anti-Boredom Month, and hopefully help you experience a flow state.
