Let’s explore a practical way to incorporate mindfulness into your daily life ..


“The quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.”

“A mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.”

Mindfulness is discussed often in therapeutic settings.

With a practice of mindfulness our attention will drift a hundred times and we will bring our attention back one hundred and one times. Let’s begin with a practice on using mindfulness in daily life.

I recommend a two minute mindfulness exercise in which you focus on your breathing for a period of two minutes, and then write down what thoughts occur within that two minute timeframe.

Learning to incorporate a mindfulness routine in your daily life can assist in making mindfulness a habit. Making mindfulness a habit in your everyday life can assist in learning to regulate in difficult situations such as when we have disagreements with our spouses or co-workers.
