Mindful Moments: 50 Ways to be Mindful!

We have compiled 50 ways to incorporate Mindful Moments into your day. Mindfulness is the art of being in the present moment, a task that we as busy people often struggle to incorporate into our daily lives. We are often caught on auto pilot mode with work, study and family duties, thinking about the future or the past and forgetting the importance of being connected to oneself in the moment. How many times have your caught yourself scrolling on social media upon waking, on the phone while playing with your kids, watching TV while eating. Mindfulness is all about bringing your mind to stillness and bringing awareness to what you are directly experiencing.

Mindfulness boasts many benefits including decreasing stress, which impacts our whole outlook on life as well as being a large contributor to physical health issues. Other benefits of mindfulness include improved focus and concentration, better memory and improvement in depression and other mental illnesses. Imagine what even five minutes of mindfulness in your day could do to your health and wellbeing.

Having mindful moments throughout your day is very beneficial. This post includes 50 ways to be mindful throughout your busy day, some as simple as bringing awareness while walking to the bus stop or brushing your teeth.
