It has been said that the present moment you are experiencing can be chunked into 10-second increments.
When you are mindfully aware of washing dishes, you can notice the scent of the soap, the temperature of the water, the rough edges of a saucepan, the depth of the water, the before and after of a single dish once it has been scrubbed clean. Ten seconds.
When you are mindfully aware of driving, you may notice the brightness of the stop light, the sound of the traffic, the scent of clean air or exhaust, the feel of your seatbelt or your hands on the wheel. Ten seconds.
When you are mindfully aware of a moment, the details seem more prominent.
