If you want to live a healthier, more centred life, you may want to consider putting mindfulness at the centre of your resolutions, helping you reduce stress, overcoming anxiety, and improving a person's overall satisfaction with life.
1. Take Up Meditation
Mindfulness meditation can help you detach from your thoughts and connect to the present moment. With repeated practice, mindfulness meditation can help you gain insight into the workings of the mind and increase your ability to be present.
2. Watch What You Eat
This may sound strange, but many people have trouble with mindfulness because they are simply not sure what they should be mindful of, noting that focusing on something like the food you eat is a good place to start. I'm not saying you need to count calories, but just to be more mindful and aware of what you are consuming each day.
3. Listen When People Speak
Listening mindfully allows the speaker to feel truly heard and cared for and enhances the connection. Set an intention to offer your full attention to someone who is speaking to you. The speaker in essence becomes the object of your mindfulness practice.
4. Notice the World Around You
If we practice mindfulness outdoors, we can notice the feeling of the wind on our skin, the expressions on the faces of the people around us, the sound of birds chirping, the texture of the tree trunk, the colours of the sky, the smell of flowers, and so on. Setting the intention to notice our surroundings enables us to take a break from incessant mind chatter and experience moments of joy, peace, and connection.
5. Turn Off Your Devices
Too much screen time could spell disaster for your well-being. Technology is great. But it often steals our time with mindless activities and at the same time adds a lot of stress to our lives since business can be conducted 24/7 through email and telephone calls. Give yourself 30 minutes to an hour of no technology.
