Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

In my head I say "everything is" (breathe in) "as it should be" (breathe out). Great meditation to stay mindful.

When you are becoming anxious or overthinking imagine your thoughts as a waterfall that you are standing underneath. You are just watching all these thoughts fall down in front of you. Try not to attach to them and just let them fall in front of you.

Never ever ever give up. The sun will come again tomorrow. Be there for it. Never ever ever give up.

I step outside a couple times a day when I'm at work and just notice and enjoy the sun and fresh air. It keeps me grounded when I'm inside all day.

My dog is sleeping on my head. If he thinks there's something good in there then I gotta trust him.

I try to remind myself to stay in the moment and not dwell in the past or worry about the future.

If I get desperate, I tell myself "I can give up tomorrow, but I'll get through today" but then tell yourself that everyday. Give yourself the day and face the next when it comes

Go out for a walk in the forest or a rural area that's quiet, helps to stay mindful and aids focus.

I stretch, feeling the stretch run through wherever I'm doing it, and getting it to go to a certain point, which does require mindfulness.

You have one life. You can either go out there and live it to the best of your ability, no matter how hard things get, or you can waste it, your choice...

The 5 sensations. What you see, hear, feel, taste and smell. You could add a sixth, what you can imagine. Do this when you need to calm down.

I'm finding that wearing a pedometer and trying to reach 10,000 or more steps a day is helping me be more mindful. Checking my step count and thinking of how i can be more active, get my step count up helped during first week back at work.

I constantly talk to my dog as if he's a person. But this is how I relax. Whenever I'm crying and he hears he comes and gives me hugs/snuggles and kisses. I don't know what I would do without my dog, he's a good man.

Yoga is an amazing way to increase your mindfulness, physical health, and positivity. YogaTX is a channel on YouTube and their yoga sessions have changed my life. 10 minutes is all it takes and it is so worth it.

If I get stressed with noise I put headphones on for short time and listen to my choice of noise to feel calm

Don't trust your emotions all the time.. sometimes it is better to listen what ur head tells u because it always knows what is right and never fluctuate like our emotions..listen to ur heart which tells u to just get and do everything in your power to change ur life because u have the only authority and power to steer ur life in whatever direction u want it to choose wisely..

I think about a perfect healthy meal to nourish me. It really places me in the present because it makes me think about today and a task in detail.

Scanning my senses. Start with your Body and feel it, the contact with the chair or the floor. Then focus on what you hear, smell, taste and see in this very moment. I sometimes do this only a few moments but you can take as long as you wish. Doing this frequently helps me become more mindful and clear throughout the day.
