Being mindful is an essential part of your journey to optimal health and wellbeing. Mindfulness is about more than simply thinking positively and being in a proper headspace. Incorporating mindful behaviors into your daily routine will help you make choices that lead you to success on your journey to lifelong transformation.
To elevate your health and wellness experiences, try practicing some of these mindful habits:
Journal. Each day, reflect on a moment when you felt a craving and how you handled it, or try writing about an accomplishment. Remember, you don’t have to write the next best-seller; one sentence is all it takes! Incorporating this habit into your daily routine will provide you with a valuable record of your thoughts and feelings during your journey. Your LifeBook is a great place to start journaling!
- Plan ahead. Spending some time thinking of situations that are challenging for you is an important form of mindfulness. After doing this exercise, plan your replies to these instances ahead of time, so that you are ready when they pop up.
- Meditate. Spend a couple of minutes to stop and be conscious of your breathing. Doing this will help clear your mind, so that you can think more soundly.
- Think as you eat. Try to practice mindfulness as you eat your Fuelings, taking at least 15 minutes to slowly and thoughtfully consume your meal. To help slow down your eating, try cutting bars into small pieces and eating one bite at a time. As you’re enjoying your food, be sure to reflect on the changes you’re experiencing and how they make you feel.
