Top Tips For Mindful Thinking

  • Take a couple of minutes to notice your breathing. Sense the flow of the breath, the rise and fall of your belly.
    Notice what you're doing as you're doing it and tune into your senses. When you are eating, notice the colour, texture and taste of food.
    When you are walking, tune into how your weight shifts & the sensations in the bottom of your feet. Focus less on where you are headed.
    Don’t feel that you need to fill up all your time with doing. Take some time to simply be.
    When your mind wanders to thinking, gently bring it back to your breath.
    Recognize that thoughts are simply thoughts

  • Practice acceptance.

    Once you start becoming mindful of your tendencies, it’s crucial that you don’t judge yourself. Practice acceptance and embrace who you are.
    The tendencies you have are there for a reason. They are signposts pointing to the areas of your life that need attention.
    If you’re a chronic worrier, you need to start noticing whenever you begin drifting to the future. Become mindful, observe your thoughts, and breathe.
    We believe our thoughts to be the authority on life, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Our thoughts are just thoughts.

  • Question your thoughts.
    Your thoughts aren’t always right. In fact, they are rarely right, especially if they make you feel bad.
    Question your thoughts constantly. When you start to feel negative emotions, use it as a reminder to examine what thoughts are causing the commotion.
    Most people walk around all day letting negative thoughts cause negative feelings. We both know that nothing good can come out of this.
    It takes discipline to be mindful, but the rewards are peace and happiness. Whenever a negative thought arises, take a step back, and look at if the thought is true.

  • Another great way to stay anchored in the now is to use reminders. It can be as simple as tying a white string around your wrist.
    Each time you look at the white string, you are reminded of the present moment. Are you in the now, or are you somewhere else?
    There are no limits to what you can use as a reminder. If you want to take this even further, you can add a new reminder each week.
    Start using external reminders such as red cars, billboards, and so on. If you keep doing this, you will be astonished at the results.

  • 1. Never value anything because of how much, or how little, it costs.
    2. Don’t expect the worst. At minimum, stay neutral.
    3. Don’t miss an opportunity to compliment someone, say thanks, or express affection.
    4. Pause periodically during the day and observe your own breath.
    5. Any time you can spend making friends or nurturing relationships is the most worthwhile way you can spend your time.

    The greatest gift of mindfulness is noticing yourself in a state you would like to live in so you can practice consciously bringing that state to each moment.
