Mindfulness is a state of awareness and being in the current state of present. Mindfulness is basically aware of what is happening now. Incorporating mindfulness has shown to help decrease anxiety and depression. I have learned to add mindfulness into my life by adding theses four basic steps.
- Set time aside for you to be present and aware. Which means putting phones down and electronics.
- Put the same time each day on your schedule and commit. Don’t change the time for a month.
- Tell someone you will be adding mindfulness in your life to have someone to hold you accountable.
- Decide where you will be practicing mindfulness and make sure it is a place with no distractions.
