Mindfulness is important when you are eating so you can pay attention to how much you’ve eaten, enjoying what you’ve eaten, and how it feels in your body. Mindfulness is a great way to capture the power of the present moment and enjoy TODAY. It is so easy to get caught up in our own day-to-day stresses, problems and forget about enjoying your life now.
Eating: As you eat, be mindful and notice what and how you eat. Become aware of the food going into your body and what is full and what is satisfied.
Exercise walking: Take a mindful gratitude walk. Spring is almost here so it is the perfect time to get out and enjoy the beauty of spring. Pay attention to your breathing, what does the sun or wind feel like on your face as your walk?
Throughout your day, take a moment and be truly present in the moment. Turn your awareness inward to yourself and tune out the external stimuli.
At first, mindfulness can be challenging or feel awkward. You aren’t used to it. As you practice mindfulness in all aspects of your life, you’ll find yourself calmer, less stressful, and feel less anxiety. After all, what is important is right now as it is all we’ve got. The past is the past and you can’t change it. The future is yet to be. The present is exactly that – the present is a present for you to enjoy now.
