How to mindfully observe a chair to become more present

Posted by Anne Wesley on

Observing a chair mindfully involves paying close attention to its physical characteristics, how it feels, and how it supports the body.

Here are some steps you can take:

Start by sitting on the chair and taking a few deep breaths to center yourself.

Observe the chair's physical characteristics, such as its shape, color, and texture. Notice the materials it is made of.

Run your hands over the surface of the chair, feeling its texture and temperature.

Focus on your body's sensations as you sit on the chair. Notice how it supports your weight, and how your body feels as it rests on the chair.

Pay attention to any thoughts or emotions that arise as you observe the chair. Try to observe these thoughts and emotions without judgment or attachment.

Spend a few minutes simply being present with the chair, observing it and your own sensations.

By observing a chair mindfully, you can become more present and aware in the moment, and develop a deeper appreciation for the objects around you.


Inspired by the power of being fully present with yourself and loved ones to cultivate a happier and more fulfilling life with deeper connections and greater appreciation, #livingandcelebratingmindfully answers questions, shares thought, experiences and simple rituals to inspire and empower everyone to live and celebrate more mindfully, with grateful hearts.
