Mindfulness in its simplest form just means bringing loving attention to the present moment, regardless of what is happening. With mindfulness being incorporated into each day, we start to feel a deeper sense of peace and connection to presence, which brings an overall calmer experience in life.

There are many ways to become more mindful, and we will discuss a few of my favorite ways here.

The most important part of mindfulness, in my opinion, is the loving lens in which you observe each moment, rather than a judgmental lens or a lens that brings any resistance to whatever may be going on around you at the time.

This doesn’t mean that you have to love or even like your current moment, but it does mean that you can accept it for what it is, knowing that it doesn’t define you. Mindfulness brings you closer to the moment, but it also reminds you that you are far more than just your current situation.

Here are some ways to bring mindfulness into each day:

  1. When you wake up in the morning, sit up, and take three deep breaths. It may also be beneficial here to place your hand on your heart, and tell yourself something kind.
  2. Move in slow motion. Sounds strange, but doing this during tasks/chores for even just a minute is a great way to slow your mind and body down.
  3. Study your hands. Just taking a look at your palms and studying the curves and lines in your hands can be a beautiful way to bring awareness to your body.
  4. Gratitude. Naming even just one thing you are grateful for every day can have profound effects and is a great way to pull yourself out of your mind’s chatter for a moment.
  5. Tune into your senses – touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound. See if you can pause for a moment and identify something that each of your senses is currently experiencing.

And remember, give yourself permission to be exactly as you are and credit for even reading this article. You deserve grace and love.
