Mindfulness is something that we can incorporate in our daily life through meditation. But many people find it uneasy to meditate or concentrate. Some people don’t practice it with consistency due to work or some unplanned schedules. But we can practice mindfulness by maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and the surrounding environment. Mindfulness also involves non-judgment, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without believing them or taking them personally.
Write down every little thing that’s floating through your head. The to-dos, worries, calls to make, emails to respond to – write it all down so you can see it in front of you.
1. Create something new every day for mindfulness:
Making or creating something is an amazing way to quiet your mind. Following new cooking recipes in youtube, making room decor DIY’s and trying to successfully make it can distract your mind and give it a break. There are times when you don’t want to spend a lot of time making these DIY”s but trying these things can help you think less about other things.
2. Mindfulness by decluttering your space:
Our physical environment can have a huge impact on our mental state. While it doesn’t affect some people, But some people will certainly feel stressed out when the space around them is messy. If you feel the same way, get rid of things you don’t need, organize those piles, and clean the parts of your home that you haven’t touched in who knows how long.
3. Share what’s on your mind
Nothing good comes from dwelling on your thoughts and keeping them locked up in your head. If you have something on your mind that you want to stop repeating, get it out. Write it down in a journal, talk about it on Instagram stories for anyone who will listen, or talk out loud to yourself.
4. Make an action plan
If you’re worried about how you’re going to get everything done in the next few weeks, make yourself a plan. Identify what needs to get done, how long it will take, and when you’re going to do it. Then set a start and finish date. Having a plan gives your mind a break from thinking about how you’re going to fit it all into your schedule.
5. Go for a walk
All you need to do is focus on each step. Feel your legs move and your feet hit the ground. Focus solely on the act of walking and the sensations of your surroundings the cool breeze, the hot sun or the dog barking in the distance. When you feel other thoughts creeping into your mind, focus even harder on the sensation of walking. You can do the same thing when you brush your teeth, comb your hair or eat a meal.
Apart from all these techniques, you can also include breathing techniques
