Practising Mindfulness At Home
Mindfulness is all about being present and aware of how you’re feeling emotionally and physically! We know that during this period of time feelings of anxiety might be high. So to help you maintain a healthy and positive frame of mind we’ve listed some of our favourite ways that we practise mindfulness below. We hope it helps and remember to stay safe and #stayhome!
Our Favourite Ways To Practise Mindfulness
Morning And Evening Rituals
Start and end your day with gratitude, exercises and music that helps you get pumped or wind down. Maybe your wake up routine includes a morning stroll, dancing to your favourite song or a delicious breakfast. Then when the day is done, use these quieter hours to reflect on the past 24 hours, thinking about the small things that have brought you happiness and what you’d like to do differently in the future.
Keeping A Diary
Jotting down your thoughts and feelings is a great way to express yourself and keep track of your emotions and reactions to life’s goings-on. Don’t worry, you don’t have to journal every day, it can be once a week or just whenever you feel like you need to. If you’re more of a talker, then video diaries are a great alternative to documenting your thoughts and life events.
Social Media Detox
We love to scroll through Twitter as much as the next social media fanatic. But, whilst it provides light relief and keeps you connected, sometimes it can become a distraction. Take time to log out of your busy feeds every now and again if needed, using hat extra time to listen to a podcast, read a book or plan your day ahead.
We’re used to living fast paced lives, so use this time to slow down! Yes, learning new skills can be an amazing way to practise mindfulness, but don’t feel guilty for wanting to use this time to rest, however that looks for you. Maybe it’s as simple as getting a good night’s sleep or lazing in the sun.
Stretch It Out
You may have picked up that we’re yoga lovers! It’s a great way to ground yourself and become conscious of your body. When practising yoga imagine scanning your body from head to toe and allow yourself to become conscious of how each part feels. Our bodies work hard, and part of mindfulness is increasing awareness of how to make it feel better!
