The more you do it, the easier it gets! Regular practice is key! Consciously commit to cultivating mindfulness in your daily life. This weeks’ tip is to spend a few minutes each day focusing on your breath and grounding yourself in the moment:
Pick one activity you regularly do, such as brushing your teeth, boiling water, or eating a snack. Take 5 minutes before or after the activity to simply be with yourself. Focus on your breath and the sensation of air going in and out of your body. Allow any mental chatter to settle naturally. This is fundamental to grounding yourself in the moment and synchronizing your mind and body.
Breathing is so automatic that we often taken it for granted. This practice reminds us of the gift of breath and helps us to appreciate our physical body. Breathe in love and appreciation for the gift of life everyday.
