      I first became interested in mindfulness when I dropped a jar of honey on the kitchen floor. A big jar, a whole kilo. It was because on my trip from the table to the shelf I was on automatic pilot, doing something I’d done hundreds of times, but with PD my grip was just enough weaker to cause the slip.

      “Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment” (thank-you, Wikipedia). Now, every time I pick up that jar of honey I think “Grip, brother, grip!” and so far it has worked. I think there’s a lot of accidents and embarrassments that PD sufferers might save themselves with the application of a bit of mindfulness.

      Lou , I so relate to this.  I find I can no longer multi task, and my grip is also failing me.  The other day I was filling a water bottle from the refrigerator spigot and I looked over at the sink looking for something and  overfilled the water bottle, with water spilling all over the flow.

      I am learning to be much more mindful and to focus on the task at hand.
