Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

I’m 15 so I still live with my parents and every time I need a reset or a second to just ground, I give my mother a hug. I find that this helps me just stop and experience something. I love my mom so it’s not hard to get a hug no and again.

Just live in the moment the exact second you are reading this that is the moment to live in not an hour from now or a month but this very second - key to mindfulness.

Try to remind yourself that the past is the past and the future isn’t written yet. Don’t try to recreate who you were when you were happy, and don’t pressure yourself to act how you think you should. Just go with the flow, live life in the moment. Your identity will come naturally, just remember to embrace the process and you’ll see results.

Whenever I start freaking out about one thing or another, I tell myself that I've done all I could and now it doesn't depend on me, so I shall just wait and see. Everything is going the way it's supposed to. So glad I learnt to stop myself from diving into anxiety. It's so so helpful to know when to stop the crazy thought train.

I smile at everyone, you never know what they are going through or how their day is going. A warm friendly smile can possibly change a person's day!

I’m recently trying not to focus so much on myself, and find beautiful things all around me. I live in a beautiful and peaceful country and am surrounded by magic everyday!

I get out of my house and go into my nearby fast food outlet to take a breather. Sometimes seeing strangers can be pretty uplifting, because you know that you're not the only one having this incredibly human experience of feeling the spectrum of happiness and sadness.

I tend to be more mindful of others... I really need to start to take care of myself just as much and learn to love the person I have become. Self awareness is the key.

I remind myself that there are three things that can make a day better: 1. Someone to love 2. Something to do 3. Something to look forward to

I stay mindful from here on out in that I actually changed my nickname on Pacifica to Nicole the fighter. I don’t know how it helps me but the fighter part of my nickname reminds me of all the times I’ve fought depression and came out stronger than I thought I could be. “The fighter” overcomes any sad thoughts and makes them happy. You could say I’m a scrapper when it comes to depression.

Wake up each day and set my intentions for who I will be and how I will feel and act.

I also try to find beauty in people instead of being negative about them. Loving things about people and loving them for themselves makes me feel better about myself

The first step toward self kindness is paying attention. Self awareness and loving yourself flows out to everyone and everything you do.

I beleive being kind/respectful to others is common sense, we shouldn't just do it because we feel like we have too, we should do it because it genuinely comes from us. Because that's what being a human being is about. It shouldn't be someone's responsibility to teach you manners. It's your responsibility, you aren't a dog who needs to be told/taught anything. My point is, it should always willingly come from you. Never blame adults or other peers for your behavior, just accept & fix.

I try to be positive and nice to others. Even if others are mean to me I still try to have a positive outlook and be nice to others.

I wake up each morning and meditate for 5 minutes with an app called headspace. Then I log in my feelings here and set powerful affirmations for the day!

Accepting things the way they are is key for me. Doesn't mean not doing anything about them or being a 'push over', but when I accept the ways things are my mind is calm and clear and more able to make helpful and positive actions

I just try to be compassionate and remind myself that there are things going on for people below the surface. It helps me not have gut reactions that may be too harsh or unhelpful to the situation/conversation.

I just did an eating meditation. Sometimes, we get so hungry and we don’t savor our food. It was an interesting experience paying such close attention to textures and tastes.

Loved the Morning Dread meditation this morning - just what I needed, and a big help for me. Thank-you Pacifica!
