4 Mindfulness Exercises for the New Year
The holiday season has begun. While some of you are planning a vacation, many of you have decided to stay indoors and celebrate this winter season with your family.
As the new year is approaching, you too must be deciding to change the interior or decor of your home. But as important as the decor of your home is, it is equally important to take care of your mental health.
When your mind is constantly racing from one thought to another, it can make you agitated and extremely stressed. But it is important to put other things aside and take time for your well-being.
Here we bring you quick mindfulness exercises that you can practice anywhere.
1) Breathing Exercise
Mindful breathing is one of the simpler mindfulness exercises to practice. You can do this exercise almost anywhere, anytime, standing or sitting.
You can sit in the lotus position for meditation to get excellent results but it is not necessary. Choose the most comfortable position to start mindful breathing. After sitting, pause for a minute and focus on your breath. Begin by remaining calm and breathing in and out for at least six to eight seconds.
2) Take a Walk
Walking is a great meditation. If you do mindfulness exercises at work, then this can be a good option for you too. Walking meditation means a meditation that you do while walking. This can be done either in a straight line or in a circular motion. Therefore, you do not need land or a large open space to walk. You can walk anywhere, in your neighbourhood, in the park, or going to work.
3) Eating Exercise
Mindful eating is another important aspect of meditation that maintains your well-being. By eating mindfully, you can make your daily task a mindful practice. Some simple techniques for mindful eating include paying attention to the way you eat and chewing each bite.
4) Make a Gratitude List
Making a gratitude list can help you focus on the things you have to be grateful for, which can enhance well-being and encourage happiness.
Every day before you go to sleep, make a list of things you are grateful for that you usually never pay attention to. You can also make a gratitude list in the morning to start your day more positively.
