8 Easy Mindfulness Activities – Simple Guide to Calm The Mind!

The concept of Mindfulness has been getting a lot of attention recently. The data is in and more and more people are turning to mindfulness practices as a way to de-stress, reduce pain, temper emotions, and to generally be more accepting of what’s happening in their lives.

Mindfulness teaches us to recognise moments in our lives that are invitations to pause and breathe; to respond instead of react; to sit and be present with whatever is causing us stress or discomfort without criticism. It is one of the most powerful tools you can have in your stress-reduction toolbox. But what is mindfulness exactly and why should you develop a mindfulness practice?

 

 

What is Mindfulness?

To keep it simple, being mindful means remaining present. Despite the hectic nature of our modern-day world, practicing mindfulness encourages self-awareness, acceptance, and taking in the moment. It allows you to truly focus on what you’re doing right now.

Mindfulness stems from ancient Buddhist meditation teachings, but Jon Kabat-Zinn adapted the concept in 1979. Over the last few years, mindfulness has gained a lot of popularity. This may be due to more mainstream coverage, publications like Mindful, and the power of social media!

After doing some research, I also found that mindfulness is often used in therapy. This is because it’s thought to help with anxiety and stress!

 

Why is Mindfulness important?

On autopilot we are so busy doing that we forget to be aware and really live our lives to the full. We leave ourselves open to depression, anxiety and stress.

When we practice mindful living, we wake up from this dreamlike state and fully participate in life

Why practice mindfulness?

Over the years, many benefits of mindfulness have been scientifically proven. For example, being mindful improves your mood and enhances your creativity and it also helps to reduce stress and anxiety. It also makes you more focused as you train your brain to remove distractions and concentrate on one task.

But Mindfulness also helps you to slow down and stop rushing, to stop dwelling on the past but focusing on the present. You’ll notice that you’re enjoying the little moments and appreciating life more, because you’re actively concentrating on being in the moment.

What are Mindfulness techniques?

Mindfulness isn’t always about meditation. It can be very easily incorporated with daily activities.

However, practicing Mindfulness Meditation can certainly help in bringing the focus back to the present moment. Thus, making mindfulness, a part of the lifestyle.

8-Easy-Mindfulness-Activitie

So, what are Mindfulness techniques?

Mindfulness techniques are any activity or practice that you perform in a mindful way.

Now, you can perform everything in a mindful way. But there are some activities that are easier to be mindful in than others.

And it’s these mindful activities that I am going to share in this post.

Now let’s jump into the details of the Mindfulness techniques that you can implement into your everyday life!

 

 

Mindfulness meditation

Mindfulness meditation is practiced by focusing the mind on the present and keeping your thoughts from wandering into the past and future. It focuses on breath awareness to draw attention to your body, open up your senses and anchor you into the present and your immediate surroundings.

  • Sit comfortably with your upper body straight but do not stiffen.
  • Relax and pay attention to what every part of your body is doing like how your legs are positioned and where your arms lay.
  • You may close your eyes if you need help getting more focused and relaxed, but it’s not necessary.
  • Gently inhale and exhale, getting into the rhythm of your breath noticing how each part of your body reacts and what you’re currently feeling.
  • Open your eyes and with a soft gaze, notice your surroundings using your senses, without allowing your mind to wander. See your surroundings and free yourself of any judgment.

The below channels on YouTube are great for guided meditations;

Conscious breathing

There’s no need to wait until stress rises to use breathing methods for well-being. You experience balance and harmony when your breaths are of equal length and depth.

As inhaling and exhaling uniformly are the natural response to inner peace, your brain thinks you are relaxed even when you breathe this way intentionally. Take deep, even breaths throughout the day to preserve well-being.

 

Don’t judge or react to your thoughts

Our minds can run away with themselves. Reacting to these thoughts can cause anxiety and stress. We can feel guilty or ashamed of our thoughts. But what if we just allowed those thoughts to pass gently? Without judging them as they arise?

Take a few minutes to focus on your thoughts. Notice them coming and going without judging and labelling. If you do judge or react to any thoughts, acknowledge that, and then gently let the thought pass.

Being mindful in this way helps you to develop an awareness and understanding of how your thoughts affect you, and how you can better control your thoughts every day.

 

Awareness of your bodily sensations

So often we live in our heads and we completely forget about our body, unless of course, we are in distress.

And here’s the problem:

We think that our mind is completely separate from our physical body.

But it’s not.

8-Easy-Mindfulness-Activitie

To become aware of your body, send your breath to different parts and acknowledge those body parts.

  • Notice the tingling in your fingers
  • Release the stress in your stomach
  • Become aware of the top of your head and the tension in your neck

Becoming aware of your body will bring you into the present moment. It will fine-tune your senses and quiet the mind.

 

Progressive muscle relaxation

A great mindfulness activity for just before bed is progressive muscle relaxation.

Progressive muscle relaxation involves taking a moment to check in with your body by paying attention to how it feels, one muscle group at a time. This involves lying down and then clenching or flexing your toes for ten seconds or so and then releasing.

Focus on how the area feels and then move up to flex your ankle and your calves. This can be very relaxing but it can also help you to identify areas that might need a good stretch or a light massage.

 

Take a mindful walk

Being in nature is one of the easiest ways for me to be mindful in everyday life.

8-Easy-Mindfulness-Activitie

I regularly take my dog for a walk over the local lake.  When I’m there, I take deep breaths, taking in the fresh air. I listen to the sounds, watch the birds, and I enjoy the smells. Depending on what weather it is, the lake always smells differently.

If you don’t have the luxury of local lake, try take a walking break during the day and go to a park or the woods/forest. Notice everything around you and enjoy. You’ll return to everyday life recharged and with a fresh mind.

 

Take a mindful shower

Being mindful doesn’t require much effort. You can be mindful with every little task. Try to take a mindful shower. Feel the water touching your skin and notice the temperature of the water.

Focus on smell of the soap, it will give a calming effect. Listen as the water hits your skin and falls on the floor. Touch your skin and notice what this is like for you.

Pay attention to your feelings. Do fresh? Be aware of your thoughts and feelings as you do this. This will also enhance the need to care for yourself, which is a very good practice for your personal wellbeing.

 

Observation exercise

Choose something small, like a stone, a leaf or a flower. If you can hold it in your hands and take a good look at it and try to observe everything about it. Focus all of your attention on it.

Notice the items appearance, what size is it? what shape is it? What colours can you see? Does the item have different textures?

Do not assess the item or judge it just observe it for what it is.

 

8 easy Mindfulness activities – Final thought

I can’t tell you that your life will change instantly but I can tell you how my life has changed.

Since I began practicing Mindfulness I have become so much more aware. I’m aware of other people’s feelings, I notice the beauty in life and because of this I can appreciate this life a lot more.

I don’t let the little things get to me so much, I can take a breath and realise that I don’t need to react to this situation.

In reality my life hasn’t changed, the things that used to stress me out are still there for the main part. It’s how I choose to respond to these stressors that is different. The change is within me, not life that happens around me.

That’s the beauty of Mindfulness you don’t need to take on the world, just yourself.

I would recommend to anyone to give Mindfulness a try. If you have already began the practice, how is it going for you?  Do you have any other Mindfulness activities you would like to share? I look forward to hearing them.

How to Find Time for Self-Care – Make Room to Look After Yourself!

Self-care is the best gift we can give ourselves mentally, emotionally, and physically. It is establishing and maintaining a healthy relationship with our bodies to improve our mood, boost confidence, reduce anxiety and stress. Practicing self-care is especially crucial during this overwhelming time.

I never used to make time for self-care. I always had more “important” things to do. For years, my emotional and physical well-being suffered. Even the most basic of self-care practices went out the window – I’d often skip multiple meals in order to get more work done, I never drank enough water, and I did nothing to take care of my emotional well-being either.

It’s taken me a lot of work to get to where I am, and even now I still slip up sometimes. But I’ve learned a lot about self-care, and if you’re wondering how to start self-care for yourself, I’d love to let you in on what I’ve learned.

Consider this a guide on self-care, I hope you find some inspiration from it!

 

 

What is self-care?

Because it’s important we’re all on the same page, right?

Let’s start with a self-care definition from Oxford Dictionaries:

“The practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health.”

“The practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.”

So basically, self-care is you and I taking responsibility for our own health, both mental and physical.

Seems pretty legit and certainly not self-indulgent.

In fact, for anyone to suggest that taking responsibly for your mental and physical health is anything but common sense, well they’re the one’s sounding ridiculous. So please don’t let anyone shame you for self-care or listen to anyone that says anything negative about your self-care practices.

self-care

You are taking responsibility for your physical and mental health, that is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about at all.

I’ve got no time for people who belittle self-care!

Anyway, before we move onto to why self-care is so damn important, I just want to give you a few examples of self-care activities so you can see how freaking diverse self-care can be…

  • Having a few extra hours in bed
  • Going dancing with your friends
  • Practicing Mindfulness
  • Having a shower
  • Meditation
  • Eating healthy food
  • Eating unhealthy food (too right that cookie is self-care!)
  • Going for a run
  • Curling up on the sofa for an entire day when you feel down in the dumps!
  • Binge watching Netflix
  • Doing a no-Netflix week
  • Working on your hobby
  • Seeing friends for dinner
  • Not seeing friends or anyone for a few days if you need just you time

This is just a tiny number of self-care activities, but see how diverse they are and that some directly conflict with the one above or below. Because sometimes we need to chill out and just binge watch a ton of Netflix, but other times we need to take drastic measures to reduce our Netflix-watching time.

One size does not fit all, and what you need one week will probably be different from the next. But don’t worry, I’m going to make it super easy for you to figure out what kind of self-care you need and when!

Let’s keep going!

 

Why Is self-care important?

This seems like a no-brainer. But so many people forget how neglecting self-care damages other areas of our life – until it actually happens.

With energised minds and bodies, we can, first of all, be more productive. You can get more done in less time, and in turn have more hours left for the things you love. As you can see, a good kind of a self-perpetuating cycle grows out of making your wellness and emotional contentedness a priority.

self-care

Through these activities/through patterns/habits, you make sure you live as your best self, rather than just exist. Cheesiness ahead warning, but why are so many of us concerned about making ‘enjoying life’ a frequent, rather than an occasional treat?!

Focusing on wellbeing and happiness now prevents burnout from creeping up on you and throwing your health and stress levels out of control. You should never feel bad about making yourself a priority, and inspires you to take action accordingly.

Depression and routine – why’s it so important?

Okay, now you know why self-care in general is important, what’s the significance of having a self-care routine for depression or any mental health issue?

Basically, routines tell our brain and body we’re safe.

Think about it for a second, if you are massively stressed or in danger you don’t do the same things every day because you’re dealing with stress or a dangerous situation. The disruption in routine acts as a signal that all is not well.

A signal we really don’t want to give our brains when we have depression.

Therefore, routines are super important because they do the opposite, they signal to our brains that everything is well and we don’t need to worry!

Which is exactly what we want, a nice, relaxed brain.

Make it a routine

One of the best ways to reach a goal or form any habit is through consistency and regular practice. The same thing applies to self-care.

In your calendar, try blocking out ‘non-negotiable’ self-care times. How frequent and how long these are depends on your lifestyle. For example, you might pick thirty minutes before bed every night to journal and read a few chapters of a book. You might want to spend Sunday afternoons getting out into nature, or meditate for five minutes every morning.

self-care

For me, working out is a way to nourish my body and mind alike. So, after consistently dedicating 1-2 hours every morning 5-6 times a week to it, the routine feels effortless and I feel the benefits afterwards each time.

This will give you a more concrete plan of action than just wishing for some spare time to appear, and also something to look forward to as a way of recharging yourself!

Want to find out more about how important implementing a morning routine into your life is? Then see the post below:

 

 

Write out what your ideal daily routine looks like

Often, we’re unhappy and stressed, but don’t quite understand why. As a starting point, write out what an ideal day in your life would look like and the answer may be right there in front of you.

If you want to, split this up into morning, afternoon and evening. What time do you want to wake up? Where do you want to spend your lunch break? How will you spend your last 30 minutes before bed? Then, see how this differs from your current routine. Going forward, taking the necessary steps to change will be much easier.

 

Be realistic and intentional with your time

Reading the above, you might think: ‘but I don’t have enough time to block out!’

If that’s the case, firstly remind yourself that:

  • It’s much better to spend a few hours a week on self-care now than burn out and crash in the future.
  • By working on your physical and mental health, you’ll likely see a huge boost to your productivity and accomplish more in less time.

self-care

Then, look at where your hours actually go. Look for time wasters and distractions. For instance, if you spend twenty minutes every morning scrolling through social media, you could use that time for yoga and light stretches. Do you procrastinate a lot and spend much longer on tasks than necessary? In that case, look at how you can streamline your workflow.

One of the reasons I practice and advocate time blocking is to make sure I’m as intentional as possible with my time. In summary, what you do is assign tasks to ‘blocks’ in your calendar. This clearly identifies what activities make up your day, and when they take place. It encourages you to get work done as efficiently as possible and still have plenty of room in your life for other things.

Finally, remember that self-care doesn’t have to consume countless hours! What you get out of the time you put in is much more important than the amount. Quality over quantity, always.

 

Get someone else to hold you accountable

Find someone you trust to check in with once in a while. This can be anyone from a friend or family member to a qualified professional. My accountability helper is my mom: she can just tell when I’m stressed out and reminds me to include enough me-time in my day, go to sleep early, not be constantly glued to my phone, and the like.

You know how we often have a tendency to show more kindness to others than to ourselves? Well, while we work on getting those balanced, it helps to have someone give you an occasional gentle (or stern) reminder.

 

Let go of guilt

Completely detach guilt from self-care. Try changing the way you think about it in the following ways:

  • Stop seeing it as selfish or a waste of time. As I said, you can’t a) excel at your goals or b) be there to help others when you don’t treat yourself with kindness. This is hard, in particular when you have goals and deadlines. The last thing you might want to do is relax, meditate and go for long walks. But try looking at these activities as an investment – in your productivity and happiness alike.
  • Don’t be hard on yourself if you fall off track. Sometimes, I stay up way too late to finish a project or miss a few days of journaling. Setbacks will happen, so just leave them in the past and move forward as normal.

Mindfulness helps with living in the present moment, instead of living with past memories and the anxiety of the future in your mind. Find out more in the post below:

 

 

Check in with yourself and find a way to track your progress

This links to the whole ‘self-care = goal’ principle. I think we’re all taught the SMART goals acronym at some point in our life. The ‘M’, of course, stands for measurable. Find a system to make sure you’re consistently doing the things you promise yourself. A habit tracker, either handwritten or digital, works well for this. I used to do this in my bullet journal, but have switched to spreadsheets (no judgement please haha) to make my illegible handwriting less of a problem.

At the start of each month or week, create a table with a column for your habits (for example, drinking 2L water, turning off your phone thirty minutes before bed, going to the gym, reading ten pages of a book) and a row for each day. That way, you can check whether you’ve done everything as expected. At the end of the time period, look back and identify any gaps and areas you want to work on.

Some people like making a separate tracker for those big, important ones, like getting enough sleep and eating your fruits and veggies. That way, you can record more detailed information, such as exactly how many hours you got and how many portions you ate in a given day.

Remember that self-care doesn’t have to be complicated

The easiest and quickest way to make room for self-care in your schedule is by making it less overwhelming. After all, the last thing you want self-care to be is another cause of stress! It’s much better to implement practices you can maintain over months and years, and really focus in on what’s compatible with your personality and lifestyle.

Extensive (and expensive) routines aren’t for everyone. Anything that replenishes your energy (both physical and mental) counts as self-care. This can quite literally be getting some exercise/fresh air, writing a few gratitude reminders, or starting your day with a slow breakfast.

 

How to find time for self-care – Final thoughts

We’re often tempted to sacrifice self-care in favour of ‘productivity’ and over-scheduling our days. I’ve made this mistake numerous times, and drove myself to burnout. The solution? Recognising that it’s much easier to face life with a healthy and nourished mind and body. Through a mixture of good time management, prioritisation and accountability, anyone can make self-care habits a key part of their daily routine. Be kind to yourself, and you’ll see the effects ripple throughout your life as a whole!

Raise Your Vibration Fast – Simple Guide of 7 Tips to Raise Your Vibe!

Have you heard someone talk about their vibe? or maybe you’ve heard the saying “that person gives me bad vibes.” The vibration or “vibes” can be felt by anyone.

We live in a vibrational universe, meaning everything – even the most physical, dense objects around us, when zoomed in on enough – are mostly space. Everything has a vibration.

Depending on what you’re interacting with – whether through thoughts, feelings, or actions – you’re either raising or lowering your vibration.

There are however, there are certain things you can do to raise your vibration fast. I’m excited to share these with you, so you can raise your vibration fast!

 

 

What happens when you raise your vibration?

Raising your vibration involves becoming aware your current level of frequency, and then consciously choosing to start living in a way that supports a higher vibration.

A high vibration equates to living in states of joy, love, gratitude, peace, fulfilment, and vibrant well-being.

By contrast, lower vibrational states can equate to living in judgment, shame, frustration, dis-ease and fear.

Wherever you are on the vibrational scale now, there are powerful ways to raise your vibe and level up so you can start living a high vibe life in alignment with blessings the highest possibilities meant for you.

 

The difference between high vibration vs. low vibration

Our vibration emits a frequency out to the universe, and that energetic vibration is reflected back in our lives. This affects both; the short term and the long-term situations. Let me give you an example of each one:

Let’s say that you wake up one morning out of alignment and you are in a bad mood. You begin your day complaining about your coffee and the weather. If you do not shift your vibration, most likely your day will just get worse.

There’s a chance of you getting into an argument with the people around you, and you can pollute the people and the ambience everywhere you go. This is an example of a short term, because it is a one-day situation.

An example of a long term would be, you notice that you keep getting rejected on job interviews, and you can’t understand why since your resume is outstanding, you are more than qualified for the job, you have the experience and the skills; so why do you keep getting rejected?

Your energy has more power than you can even imagine. When you vibrate a high-vibration, positive and loving energy, you will receive that energy reflected back to you.

However, when you vibrate at a low vibration, you attract people and situations that are also vibrating at that level.

universe

Our energetic vibration is directly correlated to what we attract in our lives: the people that we attract, the situations that happen, the opportunities that arise, and all in between.

In order for us to be in our highest possible vibration to feel good, in alignment and to attract all the greatness and abundance into our lives, we have to do our part. It is a daily work.

The good news is that shifting and raising your vibration is easier than you think.

It is our responsibility to be aware of our energetic vibration, to know how to shift and raise our vibration at any moment, and to maintain a high vibration.

The good news is that shifting and raising your vibration is easier than you think. My goal is to give you the tools for you to carry them at all times, and to use them whenever you need them in order to stay in a high vibrational state. I want you to empower yourself by choosing YOUR vibration!

So, how do you shift your vibrational energy from a low vibration (anger, fear, anxiety, etc) to a higher vibration (joy, positivity, peace, gratitude)?

Here’s a simple guide of 7 tips to help raise your vibration:

 

Gratitude raises your vibration

Whenever you focus on gratitude you instantly shift your vibrations to positive. No matter what is going on in your life, you have the power to shift your focus to gratitude.

I also encourage the use of a gratitude journal – Every day write down or even just note in your mind at the end of each day, focus on everything you’re grateful for in your life and also how those things impact your life. Always aim for at least 3 things.

Here’s some examples from my own journal:

  • I am grateful for the increase in traffic to my website today
  • I am grateful for the nice walk I had with Jo and Alfie (the dog) today
  • I am grateful for seeing the twins today

Try to make your gratitude note specific to today. So rather than me writing I’m so grateful for everyone who visits my website. I would write, I’m so grateful for all of the people who visited my website today, and I’m especially grateful for the lady who took the time to leave a message saying how helpful my post was to her.

 

Pay attention to what you are consuming

As a vibrational being, you are impacted by everything you consume:

  • The information you process mentally
  • Things you ingest in your body
  • Products you consume
  • Products you put on your body
  • Items you use in your home

If you’re consuming a lot of information that is draining – whether scrolling social media or watching Netflix shows that are negative or depressing – this creates a change in your vibration.

Start replacing the things that bring you down with something that lifts you up: good books, uplifting music, creative projects, inspiring nature around you, as well as shows or documentaries that uplift and inspire you.

 

Meditation

There are so many benefits to meditation.  By simply concentrating on your breathing and being still for 10 minutes a day, you will notice an immediate shift in your soul.

The more you practice this and let the thoughts just flow in and out while you are still, the more attuned you will feel with your higher consciousness and guiding force.

When your mind is spiralling, reboot it through meditation. This is most effective when it is done consistently; a daily meditation practice is invaluable for setting the tone of your mental consciousness for the day.

meditation

Dropping into deep stillness in meditation also gives you an opportunity to replenish your energy from the zero-point field of infinite possibility.

When you recharge from this place, you no longer need to “get energy from others”. You can cut away the need to engage in lower energy games that most of humanity is still entangled in – stepping back to observe from a place of higher Divine mind.

This raises your vibration which has an immense benefit for your life, but also helps you to ripple high vibe energy out beyond you to bless and benefit all.

Practice Mindfulness

When you put Mindfulness into practice your vibration will raise massively!

I can’t explain how much this practice has changed my life. When you’re mindful your life will transform massively.

By living in the present moment, you become at peace with your past thoughts and illusions made up in your mind.

Observe your thoughts, become at peace with them, take away the emotional attachment.

mindfulness

When you find your mind wandering, revert back to the present moment.

The more you live in the present moment, the mind quickly loses control over you. The mind is a tool that should be working for you, not controlling you.

This takes a lot of practice, as your mind has spent so many years in control. The mind has been projecting its illusions on you all your life.

Purchase a book, research it on YouTube. The Mindfulness practice is life changing when used consistently and persistently!

Some great channels that I use for mindfulness videos, are the following:

I also recommend the following books to read:

 

 

Take in nature

When you ground yourself in nature, you discharge negativity, and even more importantly, you recharge yourself with the loving and nurturing energy from Mother Earth.

After grounding yourself you’ll feel renewed, refreshed, centred, and balanced. Whether you simply walk barefoot in your garden, or go to the beach or the wood, just get out in nature, allow yourself to be present by opening all your senses: see, taste, hear, smell and feel.

nature

If you live in a big city or work in an office, you may feel you don’t have much opportunity to connect with nature.

Nature time could be:

  • Spend time in your garden.
  • Walk around a park.
  • Go to the woods.
  • Plan your next vacation around nature time.
  • Visit a lake or river

This is also where crystals, essential oils and houseplants come in. You may want to bring little bits of nature with you and consciously tune into them at home.

 

Move your body

One of the best things to do to raise your vibration is without a doubt moving your body. Think about it: your body has been lethargic and lying down for 6-8 hours, your muscles are probably still sleeping and need to stretch.

Now, I don’t expect you to do a full 45-minutes workout when you’re still feeling sleepy and unmotivated, but if you force yourself to move your body (even with some low-intensity exercises) for as little as 10 minutes, it will be a game changer, I promise.

It’s been proven that working out in the morning – even with some light exercise – can boost your metabolism up to 22% for the rest of the day and reduce tremendously sugar cravings.

Moving in the morning will get your heart pumping, your metabolism to speed up, while also making you feel more alert and active for the rest of the day.

 

create and say affirmations

Affirmations can go a long way in helping you retrain your brain and focus on the important things.  By repeating a phrase, you attract it and bring its likeness to you.

Some affirmations that will increase your vibration could be:

  • I’ve accomplished many great things
  • I always get what I need
  • I have a lot to look forward to
  • I am valuable
  • My life is rewarding and meaningful

The key for affirmations to make a difference and work is for you to believe what you are saying.  Also, by saying things in the present tense you are letting it be known that it is true for you.

Try repeating your favourite affirmation whenever you are driving or going to the bathroom. The more often, the better.

 

Raise your vibration fast – Final thought

I hope this list helps you to find a few ways to raise your vibration so you can begin living your best life.

Raising your vibration is an ongoing process, and there is always room for improvement. There will be times where you really feel like you’re getting somewhere, and then you slip back a few steps in response to an outside trigger or challenge.

Don’t worry when this happens, be patient with yourself, treat yourself with love and care, and refocus on the simple things you can do now to raise your frequency now.

Listen to your intuition, follow your heart, laugh, play, take good care of yourself and do what is right for you to respond to life with love. Keep moving in the direction of an increased vibration and remember to enjoy the journey.

There is a huge opportunity for growth available to you in this lifetime, which happens one moment at a time.

This list of vibration raising activities is a good place to start, but is by no means an all-encompassing list.

The key is to really pay attention, and make living with a high vibration a priority!
