Tips for Practicing Mindfulness.

Mindfulness is the art of having a non-judgmental and acceptance base orientation that focuses on one experience at a time.  This allows an individual to move through suffering by connecting to it. Mindfulness should be practiced daily.

Here are 5 helpful tips:
1. Pay attention to small moments. 
2. Focus on the senses.  Take time to notice what comes through your five senses: what you hear, see, smell, taste, and touch.
3. Breathe. Take time to breathe mindfully in and out.  Stay focused on the sensation of the air coming into your air passages and lungs, holding it, and then letting it out.
4. Quiet or still time. Set time aside each day to be quiet and to experience that quiet.
5. People watching.  Be a watcher of people, or of anything that might simply hold your interest.  Remember not to judge what you see.

Please take 5 minutes out of your day to practice one of these skills.  Interested in more mindfulness tips, please contact our professional counselors at 954-800-0108.
