Practice Mindfulness Daily
Every Breath You Take
When you wake up in the morning before getting out of bed, notice your breathing. Take a few deep, comfortable breaths.
Be aware of how your body feels as you move from lying down to sitting up, standing and walking.
Pay attention as you eat. Chew slowly and completely, and notice the textures and flavors of your food. Allow your body the time it needs to digest at the end of your meal before starting your next activity.
When talking to another person, take a moment just to listen, appreciating the person's experience of the world, though it may be different from your own.
Practice mindful walking, consciously placing your attention on each foot as it connects with and leaves the ground.
When standing in line or waiting, use the time to feel your feet on the ground and notice how you are holding yourself.
Be attentive when brushing your teeth, washing or dressing.
Bring mindfulness to each activity throughout your day.
