How Do I Bring More Mindfulness Into My Life? - Mindful

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.

    Mindful Pause
    • Trip over what you want to do. If you intend to do some yoga or to meditate, put your yoga mat or your meditation cushion in the middle of your floor.
    • Refresh your triggers regularly - add variety or make them funny so they stick with you longer.
    • Create new patterns. You could try a series of “If this, then that” messages to create easy reminders to shift into slow brain.

    What mindfulness is

    Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

    What meditation is

    Meditation is exploring. When we meditate we venture into the workings of our minds: sensations, emotions and thoughts.

    Mindfulness meditation asks us to suspend judgment and unleash our natural curiosity about the workings of the mind, approaching our experience with warmth and kindness, to ourselves and others.

    3. Reduce suffering, distress and trauma caused by pain and depression, along with the negative emotions that come with life-threatening diseases.
    The Space Inside Us

    Mindfulness opens up a space inside our minds that helps us respond to outside situations with ease, instead of just reacting impulsively.

    We become aware and are able to detect our default setting, which is our ‘driven-doing mind’, and catch hold of it before any impulsive reaction is acted upon. It also helps us arrest our cycle of negative thoughts.
