Weaving Mindfulness Into Your Day

Cup of Tea

 

People often complain that they don’t have the time to practise mindfulness. To find that dedicated slot in the day to set aside. But there's an easy way to practice more reguarly.

 

Think about three things you do each day. Like brushing your teeth, being in nature and having lunch. Then, all you need to do is link each activity to a mindfulness practice.

We've added a few examples below to get you started.

 

What other combinations can you weave into your day?

 

Nature + Mindfulness

Every time you go for a walk become fully present for a couple of moments. Connect with all your senses: smell the air, feel the wind on your skin and just walk.

When you notice your mind going into thinking, just gently return to the present moment experience of simply being in nature.

 

Mindful Lunch

 

Lunch + Gratitude

Before or during each meal spend 20 seconds consciously feeling grateful for having food on your plate.

Bring to mind where the food comes from and how lucky you are to live in a country where there is enough food. Stay with the feeling of gratitude and notice how it makes you feel.

 

 

Brushing Your Teeth + Something Good

In the evening when you brush your teeth, make a habit of bringing to mind one good think that happened on that day.

Maybe you had a wonderful conversation with a friend or someone gave you a gift.

Whatever it is, close your eyes, bring the situation to mind and stay with that mental image for some time.
