Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.

Affirmations work well for me. "I control my mind" helps me break repetitive thoughts.

Every time I catch myself in a cycle of bad thoughts, I try to recognize that and break the cycle and tell myself that I don't need to be thinking about those things, and that the rational side of my brain CAN win despite the chemical imbalances in my head. I've had depression for 15 years, taken medication for 10 years, but only in the last 4 years or so have I started to really fight and try to change the neural pathways that were set in my brain for so long. It is taking lots of practice.

“Try to remember that most people have felt, at one time or another, that they are losing it. You deserve a life that helps you thrive. Try and take some steps today to help you achieve more balance and a little less crazy.” - Madisyn Taylor

I wear my mala beads around my wrist after I meditate with them to remind me of the calm I can always escape to

Sometimes I have to remind myself that what's done is done... And even though I feel like breaking there is nothing left for me to do but try again... So remember, whats done is done and what will be will be....

I felt stuck in a rut. Then I began doing yoga before bed and incorporating more mindfulness into my day. Nothing has really changed, I'm just more appreciative, accepting, understanding, and compassionate towards the present.

I said to myself...I had a bad day. And accepted it. It took a couple of times saying that to accept it and surrender my self pity. I did. That was yesterday. Today I am saying I had a good day. And I did. It only took me once to accept that ;). And tomorrow is...I'll find out tomorrow.

I like taking long walks outside and focusing on the details of my surroundings. Instead of just running through mind loops in my head, I walk and think, often getting distracted by a beautiful facade of a building, intrigued by a group walking by me, tuning in and out of fleeting conversations around me in public, etc. Somehow it’s incredibly therapeutic.

It’s ok to take a chill day. I feel like I need to be constantly working and doing something productive and when I don’t I feel like I’m wasting time on my dreams... but u need time for self time to rest time to enjoy

I stay mindful by drawing, reading a book, doing mindfulness meditations, exercises at home, yoga, Taichi and swimming lessons at the pool.

During hard days I write some of my favorite inspirational quotes on my arm so I often see them

I repeat the phrase: "I'm whole, perfect, strong and powerful. I'm healthy, harmonious, loving and happy." It helps centre me and distract from any negative thinking.. it really does work!

We just purchased a beach house and we go a lot. The beach is my happy place. My work weeks don’t seem so bad knowing that come the weekend, I can escape to my happy place. It’s not a huge, luxury beach house. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s small and cozy and I am so thankful for it.

Try not to project into the future. Focus on one day at a time, or one hour. Give yourself credit for even the smallest accomplishments. It helps you be at peace with yourself.

Everything happens for a reason. I may not know the reason in the moment but it will all make sense later down the line. Keep going x x x

Reading :) for some it’s seems boring but once you get in the habit not only will it help you with writing. It is a great way to de- stress and relax. My fav books are “wonder” by R.J palacio and the “Malory towers” book series by Enid Blyton

Today was an okay day. I am definitely very aware of how I’m feeling which is a great thing. I was able to calm myself down during some intense anxiety moments and participate in what was going on around me to keep myself occupied. I kept reminding myself of how compassionate I am and how much I love people, because today my anxiety was questioning that. I am staying strong and positive and I am going to have an awesome weekend with my family.

I just try to focus on my current task/ activity, like writing this post, and not think about anything that happened before this moment, nor on what I'm planning to do afterwards. It's not easy, though. Ans that's mindfulness in a nutshell. 🥜

Filling in the gaps of those colouring books with block colours makes me feel like everything is coming together.

I tell myself “you can’t change the past but you can change the future” 🌊

Deep breathing throughout the day, taking walks each morning, and writing in my journal each night help me to stay mindful

When I'm enjoying myself, I pause and make sure I ingrain the moment into my mind, so that I can always go back to it.
