Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

I was talking to my mom the other day and she had told me that she watched a documentary about "mindfulness" and she said something that really helped me. "Whatever it is youre doing be completely involved in it, don't think of anything else besides what you're doing and pay extra attention to your body" even things as simple as showering i make sure that i am totally present. It really helps calm me down, & does wonders when im trying to sleep. So to be short: be present, always.

If I find myself getting lost in my thoughts, I gently remind myself, "Be here now. Here and now is a great place to be."

I keep a gratitude journal. Each day I make myself write down at least one thing that I am thankful for or that made me happy that day. I try to put three things down on average but on the hard days I still put one thing down, no matter how small it was, reminding myself that something good happened that day. I can't seem to hate every moment of a bad day when I do this no matter how hard I try.

For those old enough to drive, if you find yourself zoning out and getting lost in your thoughts while driving, I find it helps to give a play by play of what you are doing to stay present. For example, "there's a red car in front of me, a blue truck just passed." It helps me stay focused and less anxious.

Today I received closure for something that caused me to hate myself for almost a full year. I am thankful that I have peace of mind

I look at the world around me. I breathe in the outside air. I pick & press flowers. I admire the day's sunset. Though I'm a night owl, I always make time to watch the sunrise & sunset each day. I really like to appreciate the beauty of the world. It makes me feel aliiiiiiiiivvvvveeeeee. 🍃☀🌱

im focusing on 30 min segments of my day. how will i occupy them. if i have energy i will do a productive job or go for a walk. if i am tired i try not to nap, i watch a dvd (tv episodes are great for short attention span), when im alone i find things to do that arent exhausting as this is my down time. when my kids are home i try to focus on tgere beeds and be mindful for them. leave my problems for when i am clear minded and neautral. try not to look into the past nor panick about my future.

I have been working on staying present in my home life. I started using Google calendar to schedule things like, bedtime story, walk with husband, and other thing we would like to do. In the past I have been really bad about bring my work home or getting wrapped up in the internet. This has help it was an easy step, because I am a very devoted to schedule out every hour of my work day meetings.
