I love food! So I make sure I take my time eating and fully appreciate every mouthful.

I imagine saying the negative things I say to myself to a close friend; it reminds me to stay kind to myself.

I spend time with new people, even though I'm an introvert. The more I observe others, the more I feel comfortable being myself.

Whenever I catch myself having a negative/critical thought, I notice it, smile because I noticed it, and bring my mind back to the task at hand.

Repeating calming mantras while focusing on my breathing. One of my favorites from Thich Nhat Hanh is: "Breathing in, I calm my body. Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment."

I feel most relaxed in the morning. I have a big cup of coffee, cook a great breakfast and put the radio on. It gets me in the right frame of mind for the day ahead.

There is nothing better than reading a good book and having a cup of coffee while focusing on evey sip.

Having physical in person conversations keep me mindful because I'm focused on the topic and the moment of the conversation. It's even better if it's with a friend because it brightens my day!

focus on your current emotion and nothing more. sometimes looking too far into the future will spiral negative thoughts. if your current emotion is negative, track it's source and focus on the feeling and the feeling alone. don't think so hard!

I remind myself that no matter how rude other people are, the best way to avoid drama is to always be polite.

Focus on small goals and take them one step at a time.

I start my days with a cup of coffee, sitting outside, reciting positive affirmations aloud (HuffPost has a great list - choose ones relevant to you), beginning with "I am the architect of my life; I build its foundation and choose its contents" and so on...

I get confused with the word mindful. Most of my day I live in my mind. To me that is very MINDful ;) but really, I need to work on this.

Take some time out to breathe deeply. 4 counts in from the nostrils (let the stomach fill up, let the breath go deep), hold it for 2, 6 counts out from the mouth. Just one of these works wonders!

I practice walking meditation when I go out and about. I also always look for the joy in the small things in life :)

Complete my bullet journal, goals, gratitude for the day and challenges. Then i meditate and the challenges don't seem so bad.

I enjoy mindfulness through participation. My new favorite thing to do is dance and move while making breakfast!
