Through mindful living, you’ll be able to enjoy the moments, find more happiness, joy and purpose. Here are some ways to build habits of mindfulness.
- A Morning Ritual – As the day is just beginning, sit quietly with your cup of tea and decide how you want to show up for the day. Start the day with a good frame of mind and a heart of gratitude.
- Eat Mindfully – Enjoy the meals you prepare. When you eat, stop and eat. There’s no need to multitask. Eating slowly and mindfully is good for your digestion and help you register when you’re full.
- Be Creative – Enjoy the process of making something. Whether you like knitting, cooking, painting, drawing, gardening or colouring in. When you make time for creative pursuits it clears your mind and makes new ideas come more easily.
- One Thing at a Time – There was a time when I thought multitasking was more efficient. But studies have shown that when we divide our attention between multiple tasks we are more likely to make mistakes and it takes longer than if you were to do the tasks individually.
One thing at a time is a more mindful and relaxed way to get things done.
Take some slow, deep breaths today and feel centred, aware and truly present.
