This Wellness Wednesday we wanted to get specific about the benefits of practicing mindfulness and meditation. Besides carving out a time to practice self-care through sitting in meditation, we can practice mindfulness throughout the day by being aware of our breathing, noticing when negative thoughts come up, and choosing to remain at peace when things happen that are out of our control.
Like most anything, you will see these benefits most when you practice consistently. Creating a habit of mindfulness can be as simple as dedicating 5 minutes every day to sit still and breathe intentionally.
Keeping a journal on the bedside table and writing a few things you’re grateful for in the morning is another way to cultivate a special friendliness with yourself.
Let us know how you practice mindfulness in the comments! We would love to hear from you and share your suggestions!
