3 Simple Practices To Live More Mindfully Every Day

Updated: Jan 26



Would you like to be more mindful this year?


Aside from the many health benefits that come with a formal mindfulness meditation practice, with a little know-how you can also benefit from moments of calm and mindfulness as you go about your daily routine. Here are my 3 tips to live more mindfully every day:


๐Ÿ. ๐’๐ญ๐š๐ซ๐ญ ๐ž๐š๐œ๐ก ๐๐š๐ฒ ๐›๐ฒ ๐ญ๐š๐ค๐ข๐ง๐  ๐š ๐Ÿ๐ž๐ฐ ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ฌ ๐ญ๐จ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐œ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐จ๐ง ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐›๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ก, ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฌ๐ž๐ญ ๐š๐ง ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐๐š๐ฒ. Consider the attitudes and qualities you would like to embody as you go about your day. Patience? Kindness? Compassion? Presence? Take a few slow, deep, breaths and see what answer comes up for you. A few mindful breaths can help you to connect to the present moment, and bringing these attitudes to mind as you go about your day can be supportive in living more out of mindful awareness, and less out of autopilot or ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ-๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด.

Take care of your mind and body by taking time to take a little stretch, drink some water or eat a healthy snack, and take a few deep breaths. If you're able to do this outdoors for a few minutes that's even better.

They don't have to be particularly big or grand things. Something small like a cup of coffee made just right, a cozy chair or blanket, a kind word from a co-worker, a cool breeze from a fan, or a cuddle from a pet can work well for this practice. You can also take this time to journal your thoughts and feelings or practice a few minutes of meditation before bed.


Small practices like these can have a big impact on your daily wellbeing. Give one (or all) a try and let me know how it goes!
