Dwelling on the clutter only produces more clutter. Surprising, right? Instead, let’s focus on the feeling of a clear and level-headed mind. To achieve this, we need to practice activities that promote mental clarity.
The first step is preventing overwhelm in the first place. I use anchors to keep me grounded—the books I have written to remind me to practice what I preach, lighthouses to symbolize keeping my light shining bright, and a bamboo plant for continuous growth.
These anchors are visible reminders outside of my mind, helping me stay centered.
Additionally, I have a vision board, a daily quote calendar, and other items on my desk to reinforce my truths. These external reminders keep me connected to who I am and what’s genuinely important to me. They bring me back into alignment with myself when my thoughts and feelings become scattered and chaotic.
Mindfulness extends to our five senses. For example, when brushing our teeth, we can consciously engage with the touch, taste, sight, and even sound of the process. Mindful eating is another powerful practice that involves savoring every aspect of the eating experience.
I encourage you to find your favorite way to stay mindful.
- Breathing Meditation:
- Find a quiet and comfortable place to sit or lie down.
- Close your eyes and focus your attention on your breath.
- Take deep breaths in through your nose, allowing your lungs to fill with air.
- Exhale slowly through your mouth, releasing any tension.
- Continue to breathe deeply, paying attention to each inhale and exhale.
- If your mind starts to wander, gently bring your focus back to your breath.
- Body Scan Meditation:
- Lie down in a comfortable position, either on your back or sitting in a chair with your feet flat on the floor.
- Close your eyes and bring your attention to your toes.
- Slowly move your focus up through each part of your body, paying attention to any sensations, tension, or relaxation.
- Scan your legs, torso, arms, neck, and head, noting how each part feels.
- If you encounter tension, try to release it consciously with your breath.
- This exercise helps you become more aware of physical sensations and promotes relaxation.
- Mindful Walking:
- Find a quiet place to walk, either indoors or outdoors.
- Begin walking at a slower pace than usual, paying attention to each step.
- Feel the sensation of your feet lifting off the ground, moving through the air, and making contact again.
- Notice the movement of your legs, the swinging of your arms, and the overall feeling of walking.
- Stay present in the moment, observing the environment around you without judgment.
- If your mind starts to wander, gently bring your focus back to the act of walking.
These mindfulness exercises are effective for reducing stress, improving focus, and fostering a greater sense of presence in your daily life.
