Mindfulness Practices You Can Do Daily

How often have you rushed out the door, not knowing how you would go about your day? While you may be aware of all the things you need to do, you didn’t exactly have a plan on how to go about getting them done. 

Before you know it, you missed out on a deadline or perhaps forgotten that you had to meet up with someone to discuss something important. Out of your frustration, you begin to think negatively about how the rest of the day will turn out. You may have lashed out on someone because your impatience has caused you to act out differently. 

Simply put, you have found yourself doing something you never really intended to happen. And because it has happened in the past, you told yourself that you’d eventually get over the feeling. But how about those you’ve hurt with your words and your actions, will they get over the pain too? 

Don’t get yourself stuck in this pattern of bad behavior. With the help of spiritual meditation, you can see yourself becoming more aware of your words and your actions. Perhaps, you might even be able to try various meditation techniques to help you look forward to better days ahead. 

Hopefully, with the practice of mindfulness, you can end more days in line with how you wish them to be. 

How Do You Practice Mindfulness?

The mindfulness theory states that mindfulness will allow a person to become more aware of their actions and feelings in the moment. Not only will awareness educate you on what needs to be said or done, but it helps you realize what you can change in your life. Here are some techniques to get you started with a mindfulness practice

Tip 1: Wakeup embodying your purpose

Your daily intentions are your motivations for the things that you say and do. When you act impulsively or in ways you did not originally intend to, and then your mind ends up feeling low. The lack of focus will make you fail in your attempts to make the day as good as you imagined it to be. 

So to be in control of your life, you need to set your intentions in the beginning. They help build a secure connection between the low and high centers of your body. With your intentions in place, it becomes a whole lot easier to make your words, actions, and responses all about your intent. With a little less difficulty, you will become more mindful and compassionate. 

This practice is best done before you start your day. 

  • Upon waking, make sure to sit on your bed or a chair where you can feel relaxed. Close your eyes and try to connect to the sensations in your body. Make sure your spine is straight and not rigid. 
  • Take three deep breaths. This will help you nourish your body with enough oxygen. Let your breathing find its own rhythm. 
  • Ask yourself what your intention is for the day. Maybe you could ask yourself what kind of impact you want to make in the world. Ask yourself how you can show more compassion to others today.
  • Once you have decided on your intention for the day, be patient with yourself, and stay grounded. Anything else that does not adhere to that intent, including the negative emotions, will be made less important. 
  • Remember to check in with yourself throughout the day. Revisit your intention as a form of conscious reminder of what you should be doing. 

Tip 2: Be mindful of what you eat

It can be quite easy to reduce eating to every bite, the act of chewing, or maybe just to swallow food. Maybe you have been eating like this, but you never really took notice. Eating is one of the most pleasurable activities that humans can do, and doing it will only make it into an even richer experience. 

Eating is not just about satisfying the body’s need for nutrition. It is also about satisfying the body’s other senses. When you bring your full attention to what you are putting inside your body and focus yourself on eating what you are truly hungry for, you will be able to nourish more than just hunger. 

How do you do this? Here are some tips:

  • Take a deep breath before you eat. By pausing, you are directing your body to slow down to allow you to make more calm transitions to your meal. 
  • Listen to what your body is telling you. How hungry are you? At this point, the goal is not to think about the last time you ate. The focus is on your desire to eat. 
  • While you can mindfully choose what to eat, the more important focus at this time is to tell your body to eat when you are hungry only.
  • Being able to control your eating habits will help you manage your weight properly.
  • At your next meal, remind yourself to slow down. Breathe deeply. It is not easy to savor all the flavors of your food if you are not relaxed. 
  • If you don’t fall in love with the dish, don’t eat it. When you become mindful of what you eat, meaning you only eat what you truly enjoy, you will surely love eating even more. 

At an estimated amount of time, your brain runs in a fast mode. The default brain signals that your body produces is highly based on how efficient you want your body to be. However, the practice of mindfulness requires you to think about what your body is trying to say. 

Mindfulness is the act of slowing down the brain process. It makes you focus on what your body is saying when you engage in certain activities. Visualization meditation is the kind that makes you visualize what you want to do before you do it. Doing so will help you prepare your body and mind. 

Shifting the balance to help slow your brain down may require less power. But it should help you achieve things, just the same. Only this time, you are in charge of your body, and you are doing precisely what you want to do.
