Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

I keep an "Awesome List". When I enjoy something-no matter how small-I write it down so I can look back at it when I'm down or in need of a pick me up. I've got over 40 PAGES (each line) so far!!! Yay

I cleaned my room yesterday. I know that doesn't seem like much but it really helped, especially since i have trouble motivating myself to do anything nowadays. It gave me the idea that I can do things and have control of myself

If you feel like no one cares about you, think again. Look in the mirror because the person you see needs you more than anyone else.

As my emotions change, I acknowledge them but try not to get stuck in them. I figure out the root of the emotion and where it's coming from and I accept it and choose the best way to move forward with the situation.

Cleaning up my social media is one of the best strategies to keep me focused on the good. Instagram for instance: I used to follow so many people based of their looks, because I wanted to be like them. I have learned that you have to celebrate your uniqueness (srsly, throw a party for yourself. throw with glitter or smth)! Seeing positive messages everyday can change your perspective big time.

In anxious states, I try to return to my breath. I honor the pause, leave the situation until I am better emotionally equipped to handle it. Then I handle it.

I don't chose it, I just feel it, for example when I hear what would be for someone else a little annoying noise, I feel like it's really loud and it's resonating in my brain and my head hurts or a bad smell can make me cough really hard or whenever I see a pigeon I wanna hide and vomit because of how disgusting I find them... I hear, feel, smell every little thing outside and it makes me uncomfortable. I feel like i'm a bitch when I hear someone else's conversation that was 'posed to be private

I'm patient with myself. I remind myself that it took me years to get to where I am and it will take me years to get where I want to be.

A smile jar. :) In theory, each day I write down something that made me really smile, and place it in a jar. So whenever I seem to only recall my fearful or embarassin moments, I can look back on my happiest moments too.

To think before I speak. Sometime I do & say things on impulse.

Today I brought loads of sheets of crepe paper, folded them and then cut them into thin strips so that when they were unpicked apart they resembled long strands of coloured spaghetti. I scrunched them a bit and then filled a gift bag, at the bottom of which I hid a bright orange octopus plush. Tomorrow I'm going to give the bag to my best friends 2 year old son.

I have such a great mindfulness colouring book and I also have a colouring app on my phone that I use sometimes for just 5 minutes or sometimes up to an hour

I stay mindful of other people. It's just the way I am. Most of the time I put their feelings above mine. And then later I regret it. My feelings are just as important as theirs. Why do I do that to myself? I'm trying to change, but I still want to stay respectful of their feelings. How do I tell people how I feel without hurting their feelings? I haven't figured that one out yet. (More in comments)

Sky above me. Earth below me. Fire within me.

I live on a big college campus. When I bring lunch and eat in the cafรฉ or the cafeteria, I listen to the clinking and clattering of the silverware around me. I try to detect all the different flavors in my food. Sometimes I look at the people around me and try to guess in my mind what they'd be like - that might be kind of weird, but it's fun. Whatever I do, I try not to stare at my phone.

I acknowledge each emotion I feel as it comes, but instead of dwindling in it I've started searching for causes of the emotion and how to resolve it. I've found myself a lot calmer since doing this. :-)

Today I was getting really anxious while walking into work and I had to keep walking so o wouldn't be late and i started focusing on the noises around me instead and then when I got quieter I was focusing on my breathing. Helped me reduce some anxiety during a tough time to stop and go somewhere alone.
