How to incorporate mindfulness into your daily life

We live in a fast-paced, information-filled tech era. Our minds consume news from the time we

wake up and scroll through social media before getting out of bed until the end of the day

when we check our emails and text messages one last time before going to sleep. We are

exposed to anything and everything other people can put in front of usβ€”and the information

overload is overwhelming.

One way to stay grounded and reduce stress in our hectic lives is to practice mindfulness on a

daily basis. When we practice mindfulness through meditation or prayer techniques, we focus

all of our attention on the present moment and accept it for how it is. In doing so, we gain a

greater appreciation for the current state of our lives and a more holistic perspective of life.


Studies have shown that practicing mindfulness can help us improve our attitudes and

behaviors, which greatly influence our capacity to strengthen our mental and physical health.

Here are three simple ways to incorporate mindfulness into your daily life:

1. Set aside at least ten minutes a day for yourself to do nothing but focus on the present moment. Sit quietly and let your thoughts and emotions come and go. Accept that your

present thoughts and feelings are always temporary.

2. Practice yoga, mindful stretching, or tai chi. These exercises allow us to focus on our

breathing and on our bodies. They help us discover what our minds and bodies need at

the moment.


3. Pay attention to what brings you joy and what causes you stress. Accept the things you

cannot control and be kind to yourself and others.

By practicing mindfulness and accepting the present moment, we equip ourselves with a calm

and a positive mindset to help us get through the day!
