Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

When I'm anxious, I pick a colour and count how many objects of that colour that I can see in the room. It helps to ground me.

Today, I practiced mindfulness by shutting off the tv to listen to my daughter laughing uncontrollably in the other room. She makes me smile!

"Mindfulness is about slowing down, noticing and seeing what is really happening in front of you in this moment, withoh the anxiety of expectation or the haze of regret."

A good thing to do when you're getting lost in thoughts, anxiety, and worries is to bring yourself back to the here and now and to use all 5 senses. What do you smell? Hear? What do you notice around you in terms of shapes? Colors? Scents? Notice the shadows, notice the designs and patterns of everything around you. Describe it to yourself. When thoughts sneak in, notice them, but let them pass. It helps stop thinking loops and thoughts that aren't helpful or comfortable.

I try to do reality checks. Counting how many fingers I have, looking at clocks multiple times. It keeps me grounded

I took a solo mini vacation to clear my head and get in touch with my own thoughts and feelings. I went away just one night by myself hit the spa, took a hike and came back completely refreshed. It felt so good, I recommend it to anyone who can/needs it!

I find mindfulness is hard to achieve (I have ADD, so staying in the present is like going, "be present, but what does it mean to be present? Is it instantaneous or half future and present rolled into one? Can anybody truly make any decisions without the past and future being taken into account?". However I've found that the best way to be mindful is to step outside of my body for a second to look at how I feel, why I feel that way and for some reason this self-reflection jolts me right back.

Take a second right now to think about what you are grateful for.

I learnt this today in a happiness course I'm attending.. get a piece of chocolate (yum) and look at it. Notice the colour. Then hold in on your Pam, describe its texture and colour some more. Then smell it, notice it's flavours through smell. Then place it on your tongue and describe how it tastes. As it melts you can chew then, notice how much more intense the flavour is. This is savouring the food and works with anything. Savour moments you enjoy & notice them for all their glory!

I have started to use the time in my morning shower to review my accomplishments the day before, no matter how small. I also take time to thank God for all he has provided me and how grateful I am. I view the shower as washing off the day before and starting anew. This beats the crap out of stressing about the day ahead. 💦🌅
