Being mindful and present sounds like a great idea in theory,
but it can be hard to actually do it when you're caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you're looking for ways to be more mindful and present, you've come to the right place. Here are four tips to help you get started.
1. Make Time for Mindfulness
The first step to being more mindful is making time for it. That might sound counterintuitive, but if you don't make time for mindfulness, it's not going to happen. So set aside some time each day—even if it's just five or 10 minutes—to sit quietly and focus on your breath. If your mind starts to wander, that's OK. Just gently bring your attention back to your breath.
2. Be Gentle with Yourself
Mindfulness is about being present in the moment, not about achieving some lofty goal. So don't beat yourself up if you can't seem to quiet your mind or if you only last for two minutes before your mind starts wandering. Just do the best you can and be gentle with yourself.
3. Create a Daily Routine
One of the best ways to be more mindful is to create a daily routine that includes some time for mindfulness. That might mean meditating first thing in the morning or taking a few minutes to yourself before bedtime. Find what works for you and stick with it.
4. Let Go of Perfectionism
Perfectionism is the enemy of mindfulness because it keeps you focused on the future or the past instead of the present moment. So let go of perfectionism and just do your best. Remember, mindfulness is about being present, not about achieving some unrealistic goal.
If you're looking for ways to be more mindful and present in your everyday life, try these four tips: make time for mindfulness, be gentle with yourself, create a daily routine, and let go of perfectionism. And don't forget to breathe! Until Next Time!...XOXO 🍁🧡🍂
