As summer comes to an end, the incoming season is bound to bring many new and exciting changes (and not just with the leaves).
Whether you’re returning to school, starting a new job, or heading out to travel the world – life is about to get crazy.
What better time than now to start practicing mindfulness techniques to help re-center and recharge? More than just a trendy buzzword, to be mindful is to literally live in the moment. Reaching a mental state where we are fully in tune with our bodies and our surroundings brings clarity, and most importantly peace of mind. Lucky for us busy girls on the go, there are many quick, easy and effective mindfulness techniques that ensure we stay cool, calm and collected while conquer whatever life throws our way!
When we are busy, it can be difficult to find time to pause and reflect in the moment. It’s not that we aren’t grateful for what we have; we just get so caught up in whatever task needs to be completed next. In the new season, I want to dedicate more time to truly thanking the universe, my family, friends and even myself, for getting me to where I am, wherever that may be. Before going to bed, jot down a list of everything you are thankful for in the moment. Putting in time to express gratitude not only results in a positive outlook, but it also puts things in perspective for the next time you find yourself in a stressful situation. You’re welcome!
And there you have it -- four simple, yet effective techniques that will hopefully invite a little peace into our soon-to-be-hectic schedules. Now, get ready to welcome autumn with open arms and a clear mind!
