How Can I Become More Mindful?

       When you get out of your head and focus on your feelings, your body begins to relax. It's impossible to feel the warmth of your hands and think stressful thoughts at the same time. Are you walking from a parking lot to your office and feeling the wind on your face? This is mindfulness. Do you take a short break, close your eyes and breathe deeply focusing on your breath for just a minute? You get the benefit of stress relief and recharging. When you're driving home, do you notice the strange shapes of clouds? Mindfulness again. Each hour of the day take just a minute and focus on one of your senses: it could be the sense of touch or smell. You can look for unusual objects you haven't noticed before in your surroundings or even try to listen to your heartbeat. Before you know it, you will be mindful most of the day and stress is scared of mindfulness.
       Pick your favorite room in the house and make it your mindful room. When you have some time to recharge, go to this room, sit down comfortably and surround yourself with the things you love the most. Look at some pictures where you look young and happy, read some pages from your favorite book, remember something pleasant from your past. Do something, anything that will place you into the flow of love and make you smile. And then pay attention to each one of your senses. Feel the warmth of your hands. Diffuse some essential oils. Listen to the sound of a Tibetan bowl. There are no rules when you're being mindful.
       If you don't have a lot of space, create a mindful shelf. Fill it with items that you love the most. You will walk past this shelf every day and each time you pass it, smile. You can create a mindful nightstand or a mindful table. Use the things that you absolutely love, one for each of your senses and don't forget to change them as you change.
