Mindful Quality 10-Week Challenge Week 2 Generosity

Welcome to the Mindful Quality Challenge: Week 2 Generosity

"Generosity is not limited to the giving of material things. We can be generous with our kindness and receptivity." ~Gil Fronsdal

This week your job is to work on noticing and implementing the quality of being generous.

5 Tips to Work on Generosity

1. Listen with Generosity

The next time someone is talking to you, listen to them without thinking of the next thing to say. Hint: If someone were to ask you to reflect back what you just heard you would be able to do so effortlessly.

2. Be Present with Generosity

Remove distractions when you are interacting with someone face-to-face. Hint: Put cell phones, iPads and other technological devices away while you are with this person.

3. Generosity Toward Yourself

 Take a 1-minute pause between your daily activities to notice what you are thinking, feeling and sensing before beginning a new activity. 

4. Anonymous Act of Generosity

Do something kind for someone else without telling them. 

5. Awareness of Generosity

Take an inventory at the end of each day, reflecting on any acts of generosity initiated by yourself or others.

Please pass this on. Please share your experiences on social media.
