Easy ways to be mindful!

If you have been living under a rock for the past few years let’s have a quick rundown of what mindfulness is;

  • It’s a simple form of meditation
  • It’s about being compassionate with yourself
  • It’s about observing your thoughts without criticism
  • It’s easy to do
  • It’s perfect for calming the mind
  • It’s about bringing your attention to the present moment
  • It’s about considering your thoughts and feelings
  • It’s perfect for coping with anxiety and stress

Mindfulness 

  • Is not religion
  • Doesn’t require you to sit cross legged on the floor (although you can do that if you want to)
  • Doesn’t require the burning of incense sticks
  • Isn’t time consuming
