Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

To calm my mind I usually think of 5 things that I see, 4 things I hear, 3 things I can feel, 2 things I can smell, and 1 thing I can taste in regards to my surroundings and for me it helps out a lot, it brings me back to reality

For anyone who is new to mindfulness, a simple, common exercise is to find 5 things you can see, 4 things you can touch, 3 things you can hear, 2 things you can smell and one thing you can taste. I hope this helps someone ๐Ÿ’–

Something that I've done is use "progress beads." When I have something I want to change in my life I buy, or sometimes make, a unique bead and wear it on a necklace. Once I've made significant progress, I move the bead to a bracelet. I wear both of these everyday. The physical tokens help keep me on track and remind me of the power I have to effect change in my life. When I feel powerless I can look at my bracelet and say to myself "look at all the difficulties I have already overcome."

Feel your pulse or your heart beat. You're alive. You're here for a reason, find it. There's a whole world waiting for you to explore it.

I am serious about being mindful. Writing is the greatest form of expression but I have recently discovered a new method. As I lay in bed at night I look at the ceiling and talk. Not out loud-but I do move my lips and make facial expressions. It gives you a sense of talking to someone about something important without exposing anything. I have come deeper to my truth by using this method.

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 have a thing called a 'happy box' it's what I go to if I have severe anxiety, depression or want to self harm. it contains a journal, some coloring books and coloring utensils, glitter, some books, CD's and movies that I like, a teddy bear, some sweets and a chocolate bar, nail polish, bubbles, quotes, rubber band, red pen, a stress ball, some playdough to keep my hands busy, some of my favorite perfumes to smell and much more! It's a great idea for anyone who has anxiety or depression."

When you feel anxious, focus on grounding yourself through your 5 senses--find 5 things you can see, four you can touch, three you can hear, two you can smell, and one you can taste.

Yesterday I went out and raked up the leaves in the yard. I just focused on nature and the leaves and being outside. Best couple of hours I have had in a while.

I pay attention to each task as I complete it. I identify my senses, and positively note their respective influences.

I feel like I'm living a comedy where everyday I am angry I wake up frustrated... even after a pretty darn relaxing day, the next day I am back to angry. Like I can't find any way to enjoy things. And I'm growing more and more tired of it by the day and week. At the same time, why even bother when there are people on the street asking for money. Like why. Is happy even a real thing. Even if I do reach happy, why stay why would I deserve that when there are people doing worse exactly right now.

I tend to have what I believe is called "gallow humour" I literally could be dying, but somehow tell jokes because I hate to think that people are as upset or worse than I am, so I try to make everyone laugh.
