Mindful Mindset

When we practice mindfulness, we’re practicing the art of creating space for ourselves—space to think, space to breathe, space between ourselves and our reactions.

  1. Take a few minutes each day to practice mindful breathing. Focus on your breath as it moves in and out of your body and try to let go of any distracting thoughts.
  2. Take a break from your digital devices and give yourself time to be aware of your physical environment.
  3. Be mindful of your body’s sensations throughout the day. Notice any tension, tightness, or discomfort, and take a few moments to relax.
