When you hear the mindfulness you may think of meditation and creating this perfect space with music and a meditation pillow. However, the idea of mindfulness does not just pertain to meditation but is something that you can pretty much do at any point during your day!
All you have to do is simply bring attention to what it is that you are doing in the present moment instead of thinking about something you did and things that you need to get done.
It can be as simple as:
thinking about the work that you are currently doing
focus on the cleaning or laundry folding that you are currently doing
focusing on the song you are listening to
to driving and your surroundings
to what you are actually doing in your workout
focus on what you are cooking
reading a book
play with your dog
the outdoors around you while you are on a walk or simply just focusing on how you are putting one foot in front of the other!
If you want to bring your attention a little more inward, here are some things you can do to increase your mindfulness:
do a seated meditation
do some light stretching or yoga
practice deep breathing
gratitude journal or journalling in general
listen to some music
I hope you enjoyed these tips!
