10 Steps to Incorporate Mindfulness into your Daily Life – Video Transcript

This video contains 10 steps to incorporate mindfulness into your daily life

A good way to start the day is, before you even get out of bed, take a few moments to set your intentions for the day.

Focus on what you are grateful for and then visualise how you would like your day to look.

A good way to physically start your day is to do some mindful breathing, or exercises or both if can fit both in.

Get to know your breath, where you feel it, and where it goes in your body when you take nice deep breaths. You might only have time for some exercises, in which case you can combine the deep breaths, with some gentle movement or stretches  that you get on with.

Then, when it’s time to eat, do just that, just eat, with no distractions, in other words, no TV or – phone, I am sure you are feeling resistance rising at this suggestion, just try it.

It’s about really engaging with what food tastes like, because mostly we eat our memories, what food tasted like the last we ate it, or the way mum used to cook it. So fully engage in your senses, smell, taste, texture and enjoyment of food and chew slowly and mindfully. You might even find you eat less food by eating mindfully in this way.

Mindfulness can also improve productivity and focus in your working day. We are all guilty of trying to multi-task, so if we give our full attention to one task at a time, it can reduce stress and improve the quality of your work.

And to help your working day even more, it’s good to incorporate short mindful breaks throughout the day, coupled with some nice deep breaths to invite some stillness into that mindful break. This can help clear your mind and recharge your focus

And of course you can infuse mindfulness into all your daily activities, particularly if it’s stuff you do often, like doing the dishes, or mopping the kitchen floor, dusting, or vacuuming, all you need do is notice the sensations, movements, and actions involved in whatever you are doing. This is using sensory awareness to stay present, you are engaging all your senses, so you can include colours you see, shapes you see, sounds around you and what you can feel.

This all goes to bring you into the present moment, which keeps your monkey mind of racing thoughts, under some sort of control.

Before climbing into bed you could do some gratitude journalling, if journalling is your thing, sometimes just getting some jumbled up thoughts down on paper is soooo helpful.  It’s like pent up emotion are absorbed by the paper.

These practices can help you wind down, promote some positive emotions, and set the stage for a restful night’s sleep

And before you drift off to sleep, take a few moments to reflect on your day, without judgment. Acknowledge your accomplishments and maybe areas that you might do differently. This reflection can be a powerful tool for personal growth.

So, incorporating mindfulness into your daily life doesn’t have to be complicated, by just following these steps:

  • mindful mornings
  • eating
  • working
  • daily activities
  • and evening routines

…you can cultivate a greater sense of presence and well-being.
