Alphabet Blogging - J

J is for Just a Minute

It takes 'just a minute' to:-

smile at a few people each day

think of one part of your body and stretch it, think of another and stretch it, think of another and stretch it ...

clean the kitchen sink

make a shopping list (make sure you stick to it)

deep breathe

stop for a moment


be thankful

do a good deed for someone

say please and thank you

dust around a room

hug someone (preferably someone you know.*)

exercise the brain (recite the alphabet backwards, anyone?)

dance around for a bit

hold in your stomach muscles

exercise your pelvic floor muscles

put the towels straight in the bathroom


sweep the kitchen floor

In fact you can multitask some of these - e.g. dance around singing a favourite song while sweeping the floor!

Each one of these tasks is good for you in some way, helping to keep your brain and body healthy and your mind at peace.

And when someone sees you prancing round the kitchen singing your heart out you can stop for a moment, breathe deeply, hold in your stomach muscles and smile, being thankful that it's probably someone you know. :) Let's hope they give you a hug.

I'm sure there are many more 'just a minute' activities. Why not exercise your brain and think of some.
