I've talked before about how my photography, in many ways, is sort of a meditation practice -- one I use to stop, breathe, and look for beauty around me. Even if it's just to snap a pic of a little chalk heart.
I was thinking that I was lucky that I made a living by doing something that inspired mindfulness, and how impossible it would have been for me to do so when I was practicing law. But it turns out I was wrong.
There's a new movement in the legal profession to promote mindfulness in the practice of law. I wrote about it on the LIME blog, and you should go take a look -- it's pretty interesting stuff. But it got me wondering:
How do you guys meditate? Do you meditate in a traditional way, or in an unexpected way, like through a hobby, or a sport? And if you do, have you noticed any direct impact on the way you do your job, or parent, or otherwise work?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
