MORE IDEAS FROM Pause, Breathe, Smile, live life

I’m just asking for a little space in your life for mindfulness

Mindfulness is important for many reasons. It gives you space in your life to reflect, recharge and live well. It allows you to unplug from the information overload we face every day.

This is why we’re here — to experience the bliss of everydayness. To touch, to feel, to see and to breathe.

Step back and breathe

Every once in a while, you’ll go through tough times. You’ll feel like the universe has it out for you (or that you won’t get another moment of happiness). Everything will seem unusually difficult, and on some occasions, seemingly impossible. If you find yourself feeling stressed out more than usual, maybe you should take a step back and breathe.

Breathing exercises

Breathing is at the core of ancient (and currently trendy) mindfulness practices, from yoga and tai chi to meditation.

However, studies suggest that breathing exercises alone, derived from those ancient yoga practices, can be good for the body and mind.

Shopping as a bonding activity

Shopping can be a bonding activity between friends and family members. But making positive connections with people you don't know (offering a cashier a warm thanks for example) has a remarkably powerful impact on well-being and even physical health.

These short moments of connection expand your awareness in ways that accrue to create lasting and beneficial changes in your life.

Mindful Wakeup

First thing in the morning:

  • Close your eyes and connect with the sensations of your seated body.
  • Take three long, deep, nourishing breaths—breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. Then let your breath settle into its own rhythm,
  • Ask yourself: “What is my intention for today?” and then set that intention.
  • Throughout the day, check in with yourself. Pause, take a breath and revisit your intention.
