6 WAYS TO GET IN THE MINDFULNESS ZONE

With practice comes mindfulness so follow these steps a few times a week and you will start seeing the benefits.


STEP 1

GET COMFY


Get into your comfy sweats and find a quiet spot in your home where you won’t be disturbed.

Make sure that your phone is in another room on silent.

STEP 2

FIND YOUR POSE


There is no right or wrong way to get in this zone. Whether it's lying down in a comfortable position, sitting cross-legged on a pillow, or upright in a chair. Try a few different ones until you find the best for you.

BREATHE MORE DEEPLY


Close your eyes and take ten deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. Concentrate on taking your breath all the way down into your abdomen.

STEP 4

FOCUS ON YOUR SENSES


As you begin to breathe deeply, become aware of each of your five senses. How do your clothes feel on your skin? What can you taste in your mouth? Is there a distinctive smell in the room? Does the light mean that you can see patterns on the inside of your eyelids? Become aware of the sound of your breath as you inhale and exhale.

STEP 5

STAY PRESENT


When you notice your thoughts wandering off from your senses, acknowledge what’s happening and bring your focus back to the centre, back to your breaths. Don’t allow your thoughts to dwell on the past or worry about the future. Concentrate solely on the here and now.

STEP 6

RETURN REFRESHED


Even ten minutes of mindfulness is brilliant for you. Take a few minutes to open your eyes and appreciate your new-found awareness of your surroundings before you return to those chores.
