Mindfulness Tip: Slow Down

Updated: Oct 24, 2020

When we try to multitask, we damage our brains in ways that negatively affect our well-being, mental performance, and productivity.

Bringing some simple mindful awareness to our everyday activities can help safeguard against this.  Single-tasking - doing one thing at a time, with our full attention - is a great way to support this intention.   Give yourself bonus points if you take a few mindful breaths while doing so.

To take a mindful breath, simply slowly breathe in, and feel in your body how it feels to breathe in; and then slowly breathe out, and feel in your body how it feels to breathe out.  Repeat for 2 or 3 breaths. Paradoxically, the more we slow down, the more efficiently we use our mental resources, which frees up time to accomplish more.
