“While washing dishes, wash each piece relaxingly, as though each bowl is an object of contemplation. Consider each plate as sacred.  Follow your breath to prevent your mind from straying. Do not try to hurry to get the job over with. Consider washing the dishes the most important thing in life.  Washing the dishes is meditation. If you cannot wash the dishes in mindfulness, neither can you meditate while sitting in silence.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh
