Learning these simple practices will bring ease and calm into your daily life especially for those who would like to go beyond mindfulness meditation.


Mindfulness meditation is just one practice of the important tools and opportunities to add to one mindfulness practice.

Both mindfulness and meditation are like any other skill. It takes practice and commitment so you can start to reap its health benefits. Here are some easy ways to do it.

Bringing full attention to all the sensation and pleasure that eating a flavorful meal can offer us an excellent way to practice the act of being in the present moment and connect to our bodies.


It teaches us to eat when we’re hungry, stops when we’re satisfied, and enjoy every minute of eating tasteful food. Pay attention to how you chew, swallow and taste your food.

Yoga, HIIT, Pilates, running, swimming, whatever the physical activity you choose to practice, you can bring mindful attention to how you do it. Breath deeply throughout the whole practice, notice the environment around you, and pay attention to every movement you take.


Mindful Listening

This mindful practice connects you as a listener and the other (or others) who are talking. It can make you connect on a deeper level to what the other is saying. Paying full attention and not being distracted by inner chatter or outside noises teaches valuable and positive communication skills.

Walking mindfully is much more about the “journey” rather than the “destination.” That means you connect and appreciate every single sensation you come across. For instance, you can become aware of how your feet touch the floor, the sounds and smell around you, and so on.

Another popular exercise for practitioners of mindfulness is called the Body Scan. You can do it lying down or sitting in a comfortable position. Start at the feet and move all the way up to your head (or the other way round), and move through every single part of your body. If you don’t know how to do it by yourself, you can use guided audio.
