Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

It sounds silly but I try to stay off of social media and certain apps. I sometimes find myself getting sad or upset when I stupidly start comparing myself to others that I know. It has been helping me though and it makes me focus more on bettering myself besides being glued to my phone.

I try to find one good thing about my day

Posted at Nov 2, 2016 1:17 AM, 2 comments

I try to forgive myself at the end of each day for the things i did not do. I will try to remind myself that i am not a failure or a bad person, but just a woman dealing with an ilness that often gets the best of me...i need to try to forgive myself, otherwise i feel so sad, and wake up geel awful en depressed about being a failure. Its difficult to get this right everyday.

Be aware not to join in on gossiping

Swing on a swing at the park. Feel the wind, feel the difference in gravity at different points of the movement arc. Feel the rubber coated chains under my grip. Trust the swing, trust myself to remain in the swing. Open my eyes, look at the trees, look at the sky. Stop myself, feel the gentle grind of the playground pebbles under my heels.

Treat yourself like a child, be calm, patient and understanding toward your thoughts. Don't chastise yourself for something you perceive as wrong, just treat it with loving kindness. Too much pressure for perfection can hold us back. Its all about having an ease and fluidity in life.

I know it sounds weird, but everyday I think of exsistance. Like how huge the universe is and how it cannot be contained inside of my mind. I love to think I am apart of something way bigger than myself and this life that I get in this body is such a gift. I feel like we only get a short period of time so living life wholly is what keeps me going. You can't have good without bad and vice versa. I try to embrace life how it unfolds and feel the experience wether good or bad.

The second you stop thinking about things that bring you down is the second you start living.

Do only one thing at a time. I was walking home yesterday and desperately wanted to pull out the timetable I had just gotten for a course I'd applied to. But I said no, I'll look at it when I get home. For now, just enjoy the peace of the walk. I then tried to let go of the future (when I could see the schedule) and just be mindful of the present. And I *did* enjoy my walk! 🌿🍃🍁🍂

Wake up early in the morning and go for a brisk walk. It helps me feel in control of my mind, body and health.

Remember that everyone struggles. Everyone around you. We are all here together. We all struggle.

Practicing mindfulness helps me to simply allow whatever I'm experiencing - yes I'm anxious, yes I'm self conscious. Ok. This is how it is right now and that's ok.

Kindness can go a long way.

If you're worried about getting anxious or panicking, it might help to remind yourself: "I've gotten through moments like that before. If I panic or get anxious, I can be here for myself and calm myself down. I can deal with the thoughts and feelings and accept their presence until they pass. As long as I remember to be there for myself, I know I'll be fine."

Draw a square with your breaths. Close your eyes. Breathe in and draw a horizontal line across in your mind. Hold your breath and draw a vertical line down from that horizontal line creating a corner. Breathe out and draw another horizontal line back the other way to almost finish the square, then finally hold your breath again and draw a vertical line up to the previous horizontal line to finish the square. Do this slowly and over and over. This is called square breathing.

Woke up in a good mood today. This is rare for me, maybe happens a few times a year. I'm keeping mindful of what I do, say and listen to today and just maybe I can keep this feeling going. Sending out positive vibrations.

I get on here, I remind myself I am very grateful for many things, and I don't take things for granted.

I tell myself... Take a deep breath, remember you're still alive, still thinking, breathing, feeling. It's okay to feel down, but know that youre still here because you are strong enough to be. You're worth it and you're amazing. Stay you boo <3

just trying to stay focused on my breathing and think of the present moment

Noticing my responses to stimuli, both emotional and physical sensations when traffic makes me angry or a book makes me sad or a situation makes me anxious - naming what's happening in me when in the moment - allows me to control myself better.
