Add Easy Mindfulness Practice Throughout Your Day

You can turn everyday tasks into moments of mindfulness and peace. By incorporating just a few easy practices into your daily routine, you can feel grounded and in the present much more often.
Below are a few ideas on how to be present throughout the day.

Some will be easier for you than others. Do what’s easiest and most accessible for you. We want you to have an easy win, not a big challenge. Try what appeals to you and stick to the ones that help you find the present moment with the most ease.

Experiment, be easy on yourself (no fussing at any fails), and have fun.

Mindful Practices

  • Morning Gratitude: Start your day with a few dedicated minutes to be grateful for the new day and the opportunities it brings. Consider what you’re thankful for in your life.
  • Deep Breathing: Practice deep breathing exercises as soon as you wake up. Inhale deeply through your nose, hold for a moment, and exhale slowly through your mouth, focusing on the sensation of the breath.
  • Mindful Shower: Pay attention to the feeling of the water against your skin during your morning shower. Notice the temperature, the scent of your soap, and the relaxation it brings.
  • Mindful Breakfast: Instead of rushing through breakfast, take the time to savor each bite. Pay attention to the flavors, textures, and nourishment your meal provides.
  • Mindful Commute: However you travel in the day, use your commute as an opportunity to notice what you see and hear in the present moment.

  • Check-In At Work: Throughout the day, take short breaks to check in with yourself. Pause to take a few deep breaths, stretch your body, and refocus your attention on the task at hand.
  • Mindful Movement: Incorporate movement into your day, whether it’s through yoga, stretching, or a short walk outside. Pay attention to the sensations in your body as you move and breathe.
  • Listen: When interacting with others, practice active listening and genuine engagement. Put away distractions and give your full attention to the person you’re with.
  • Enjoy Your Creativity: Engage in a creative activity that brings you joy. Write, paint, draw, or craft. Allow yourself to get lost in the process and appreciate the action.
  • Go Outside: Spend some time outdoors and connect with nature. Take a walk in a nearby park or garden, and take in the atmosphere around you and sense you experience.

  • Mindful Reflection: In the evening, reflect on your day. Journal about what went well, what you learned, and what you’re grateful for.
  • Relax: Before bed, wind down with an evening ritual. Practice gentle yoga or meditation, take a warm bath, or read a book to calm your mind and body.
  • Simple Sleep: Create a calming bedtime routine that signals to your body it’s time to rest. Turn off screens, dim the lights, and practice deep breathing. 
  • Pay attention to your hydration: Throughout the day, stay hydrated and pay attention to your body’s signals for thirst. Notice the feelings and respond to your body telling you what it needs.
  • Check-In With God: Throughout the day, check-in with God and ask for guidance and presence throughout the day. Offer any worries or concerns to Him and let Him handle the tough stuff. 
  • Read The Bible: Set aside time to read and reflect on scripture. Choose a passage or verse that speaks to you and spend time meditating on its meaning and how it applies to your life. Allow God’s word to guide and inspire you throughout the day.
  • Mindful Exercise: During your workout, pay attention to your body’s movements, your breathing, and how your muscles feel. Remember, no judgment.
  • Engaged Cooking: Notice the colors and smells of the ingredients. Pay attention to the sounds of chopping, sizzling, and stirring. Be mindful of the process and enjoy creating your meal.
  • Mindful Breathing with Scripture: Practice mindful breathing exercises using scripture as a focus. Choose a verse from the Bible and meditate on it as you breathe deeply. Allow God’s word to fill you with peace and presence in the moment.
  • Listen To God During Prayer: Practice attentive listening in your prayer time. Give God a chance to get a word in. Quiet your mind and heart, and listen for His love, encouragement, and guidance.You can do this as a dialogue and ask questions and listen for His response or just show up and say, “Hey God, talk to me.” Try and see how you two communicate best.

  • Kindness: Stay open throughout the day and look for opportunities to care for people in need. This can be as simple as listening to your friend who needs an ear. 
  • Forest Bathe: Forest bathing or nature bathing is so simple and restorative. Walk in any natural environment and consciously connect with what’s around you.
  • Smell a flower- when you see a flower, stop and give it a sniff. Literally, stop and smell the roses. 
  • Feel your breath: When you get anxious or rushed, stop. Breathe and feel your breath moving in and out of your body. 
  • Listen to music- Listen to a song you love as if it’s the first time. Pay attention to the notes, the lyrics, and become aware of how it makes you feel. 
  • Take a screen break: Set specific times to check emails and social media. Be mindful of your screen time and take breaks to disconnect for hours at a time.

  • Body Scan: Periodically check in with your body. Notice any areas of tension or discomfort, and take a minute to stretch or adjust your posture.
  • Single-Task: Focus on one task at a time instead of multitasking. Give your full attention to what you’re doing, whether it’s washing dishes, writing an email, or having a conversation.
  • Enjoy The Minty Sensation: As you brush your teeth, pay attention to the sensation of the brush against your teeth and gums, the taste of the toothpaste, and the sound of the bristles.
  • Meet With Intention:  Before you have a meeting or start a conversation, take a deep breath and set the intention to be fully present. Listen actively, without interrupting, and be aware of your reactions.
  • Mind Your Chores: When doing chores like washing dishes or laundry, focus on the sensory experiences. Feel the warmth of the water, the texture of the fabric, and the movement of your hands.

Practicing Your Mindfulness Practice

Embracing mindfulness in your daily routine doesn’t have to be a daunting task. In fact, pretty much anything can be a practice of staying present. Just look for ways to add awareness to little moments in your day. Keep it simple. Make it enjoyable. 

Savor your morning coffee, listen when you’re in conversations, and remind yourself to come back to the moment when you drift off. These little changes can make a big difference and help you create a happier, more balanced life. Remember, it’s all about enjoying the journey, one mindful moment at a time!
