In the middle of the day, amidst all the chaos around or within you, if you feel lost, unfocused or overwhelmed then I am going to tell you a powerful 1 minute mindfulness exercise that can make you feel at peace even if you are in a room full of noise!
Being mindful means being aware of what you are sensing in the moment and how you are feeling.
It involves making your mind and body act in sync. Physically, you may be present but mentally you might not be able to focus, feel detached from whatever is going around you. Doing this exercise can help you feel one with the environment you are in and make you be more present.
Importance of this exercise.
This simple technique is perfect for beginners to understand the practice of mindfulness meditation and the ability of this exercise to be performed anywhere no matter where you are is like the cherry on top.
What is the 1 minute mindfulness exercise?
Close your eyes, listen to the sounds around you and make a mental note of everything that you hear.
Suppose you hear someone talking-recognize that! You hear the birds outside the window or a car’s horn, say it in your mind whatever it is that you hear as and when you hear it.
Doing this will heighten your senses and help you feel focused. By the time you open your eyes, you are bound to feel more relaxed and much more present in the moment.
It’s not necessary to do this in the morning or at any specific time. You should take a minute out of your day any time you think you need to clear your head or when start to feel overwhelmed by life’s many pressures.
Practicing mindfulness is one of the many factors leading to good mental health and can also help with avoiding overthinking. Overthinking is a major issue causing stress and anxiety thus dealing with it is extremely important. In one of my previous posts I have taught how to stop overthinking in 3 simple steps.
I am certain that once you start practicing the 1 minute mindfulness exercise you will start to notice the change in you from the very next minute!
