3 Simple Habits for Daily Mindfulness

If you are experiencing stress or anxiety that’s affecting your everyday life, mindfulness techniques could help relieve your symptoms. Here are 3 simple habits for daily mindfulness.

Breathe

When you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed or anxious, focus on your breathing. Observe the length and depth of your breath. This can help you to take your focus off whatever your mind is fixating on and bring your awareness inwards. Try taking 5 mindful breaths in the morning when you wake up, throughout the day whenever you’re in line or on a break, and again at night before you go to bed.

Body Scans

In your mind’s eye, scan your body from the tip of your head to the base of your feet, taking notice of the sensations in each point. Notice the tense points or places where you’re carrying stress. When you notice them, let them relax a little. You can repeat the scan as many times as you want, relaxing the tense areas a little more with each round. This is a nice stress-relieving mindful exercise you can do at any time of the day when you are sitting at work, home or in transit for example.

Observe your Thoughts Without Judgment

It’s all too easy to self-berate when you think something you believe you shouldn’t. Part of the mindfulness theory is to notice the thoughts you have, realise and accept that you have had that thought and then let the thought go, all without judging what it means to have that thought. Allowing your thoughts to come and go like clouds’ passing in the sky is a good way to train your brain to not attach meaning or to fixate on thoughts. With time, this exercise can assist you in lowering your overall stress and anxiety.
