Tips to practice Mindfulness

  • Allow your mind to wander and gently return awareness to your breath sensation.
  • Notice any tendency to be hard on yourself. See this kind of judgment and gently return awareness to your breath.
  • Embrace relaxation and being present with awareness.
  • Expect to notice more things, including more painful things.
  • Practice staying present. Stay open to all the possibilities in each situation.
  • Be careful not to try too hard. Experience life directly as it unfolds, paying careful and open-hearted attention.

    Mindlessness, or going on autopilot, can result in missing the good things in life or ignoring important information about relationships or health.

    The antidote is to practice to pay more careful attention to what is going on around you as well as inside of you.
