There is a balance between getting a task completed quickly and making it a moment. Sometimes all that is needed to make a task into a moment is a little layering. The layering of enjoyable elements builds the experience. Picture a Pilates class. Attend with a friend. Add in a comfortable setting that has plenty of space and is well lit. Maybe add in some music or some small talk to break the ice and settle into it. All the details take it from a class to an experience.
Layering experiences doesn’t entail paying bills while cooking and keeping an eye on work e-mail. The latter being some form of multi-tasking, which has its place; however, that place is not part of making a moment.
Making a moment is about layering what you enjoy into a single task of primary importance. Each layered element is meant to draw out the best aspects of the main objective. The effort to make moments takes center stage this time of year, but it is always, at least a subtle, backdrop to making the most of each day-- especially when striving to practice Pilates daily.
