Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

I do a grounding exercise: notice five things you see, four things you can hear, three things you can touch, two things you smell and one you can taste. It helps me to focus.

I just need a hug

I have started paying attention to my negative thoughts more and training my brain to accept that they are there instead of pretending that they are not. It's actually making it easier to let them go.

Sometimes when i’m feeling sad i do something just for me, something i like and enjoy. Simple things like putting some clothes that you feel comfortable and confident in and just say to myself “you look pretty”, can help a lot.

I stay mindful by writing in my journal each day and expressing my feelings.

Focus on one task at a time, and don’t let myself be pulled in other directions. No browsing my phone or the internet while I’m watching a show, no trying to multitask while making dinner. Be there, focus on what is in front of you.

I put up the Christmas tree with my family and it really took my mind off my stress and worries :)

I’ve been starting the day making my bed immediately for the past month. Such a little thing- sets tone for day

Whenever i can i set my alarm clock on the phone to ring 60 minutes from now. When it rings i stop any activity and meditate for 3-5 minutes. If i am alone i close my eyes, if i am on tge bus or at work i simply concentrate my stare on one unanimated object. It helps me coming back to my center and in preventing binge eating or watching 12 tv episodes in a row.

I attended my first mindfulness group and really enjoyed it. It was a 45 minute session in a dimly lit room. It felt like a mix between group therapy and meditation. We practiced guided meditation/visualization. I felt so calm, actually at peace during that time. I have felt the most relaxed today than what I have felt in a very long time. It feels like I am getting my emotions back- I truly felt good and happy. Remember, go at your own pace and take things one day at a time <3

Stay mindful of the urge to compare yourself to others. It usually is not helpful, and it can drive you crazy. Be content with what you have now. If you can’t find joy where you are now, you won’t find it when you have more.

Don't try and find yourself. You're only searching for certainty. You're always changing

I'm taking breaks throughout the day to write in my journal and I do little meditation.

Showers keep me mindful. Since I can focus on caring for myself and have to unplug, this is my most mindful ritual.

I set my alarm on my phone, after I turn it off, i sit up in bed, stretch and just think about my day and then get up. I don't read my phone as if it was my morning paper.

I started being ok with not being perfect by acknowledging my anxiety and thoughts I don’t like when they come up and tell myself aloud “ok, so we think this or we’re anxious and that’s ok”. It helps me move on faster and not feel bad about it.

I have never meditated before. I need to practice being mindful and finding patience.

I stay mindful by coming home and taking a nap after work. An actual nap. Where i ignore technology/social media /my phone for hours without feeling like somethings missing.

I love to walk into the woods and sit under a tree for at least half an hour doing nothing but look around - the longer I’m there and still, the more animal and insects I see, and the more tiny details I notice in what’s around me that I never would have without holding still and giving myself time to really see what’s in front of me.
