Ever-Growing List Of Everyday Mindfulness Techniques

Green Wavy Line

"Mindfulness is not a distraction from life,
but a means of being fully alive and engaged in it."

- Mark Williams and Danny Penman


Mindfulness is a powerful tool for reducing stress, increasing self-awareness and enhancing your overall well-being. It's all about being present in the moment and letting go of distractions and worries.


The best part?


You can start incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine with simple and unique techniques that work for you. Just like doing a sit-up, each time you bring your focus back to the present moment, you strengthen the connection between your amygdala and prefrontal cortex making it easier to stay present and therefore build your emotional resilience.


I have created this list as a pick and mix of techniques for you to try. Some you will love, and others won't be supportive but with regular practice, you'll notice a greater sense of calm, improved decision-making and stronger emotional resilience.


So start exploring mindfulness techniques today and see the difference they can make in your life!
