Mindfulness is a practice where a person attempts to be conscious, aware, and present. It’s vital to be able to acknowledge and accept one’s thoughts and feelings. Often, practicing mindful moments throughout the day can be therapeutic and can train the brain to focus on the good things in life.
I know that when I went to therapy to talk about anxiety, the weekly homework I was given included both yoga and mindfulness exercises. When I spent time looking for positives, I spent a lot less times drowning in stressful negatives. Some of my favorite mindfulness exercises included helping others, meditation, and journaling.
The best part of working on mindfulness is that it can often be done without spending a ton of time and money! Just spending a few minutes a day on self-reflection and positivity can make a huge impact. And helping others or taking a day off social media cost nothing at all.
I wanted to share this therapeutic “homework” with you all. I thought that a simple way to do that would be to share a 4-week mindfulness challenge chart! It’s easy to follow and will give you a chance to practice 28 different mindfulness techniques.
