Mindful Eating is a way to turn something you do every day into a mindfulness practice - google image
You can make mealtimes more mindful with a few basic mindful eating practices, like listening to the sizzle of your pan and chewing slowly to savor every bite.
Other mindful eating tips you might want to try:
Try eating with your non-dominant hand.
Eat the first few minutes of your meal in silence and focus on the flavors, aromas, and texture of your food.
Turn off your TV and put your phone away while you eat.
If you’re working on the computer, focus on one task at a time- google image
You likely (correctly!) guessed that single-tasking is the opposite of multitasking. All it requires is showing up fully to whatever task you’re working on.
If you’re working on the computer, focus on one task at a time. As much as you may not want to, close all the browser tabs that aren’t relevant to the project you’re working on. This can help free up mental space and might even create laser-focus.
To deepen the practice, focus on:
how you’re breathing
how your body feels in your seat, or how your feet feel against the floor if you’re standing
the sensation of the air or your clothes against your skin
the structure and posture of your body
Creativity is an excellent mindfulness activity for adults - google image
As we get older, we spend little or no time on creative projects. Creativity is a perfect opportunity to practice being present and mindful.
For this exercise, we’ll let you choose the activity. Some examples might be painting, woodwork, writing, arranging flowers, photography, whatever.
The goal of mindful creativity is to be present, so no mobile phones, TV, radio, or other distractions. If you want to listen to music, make sure there won’t be any ads or news broadcasts. The goal is to be focused on your creative activity without any outside influence.
What you will notice throughout these mindful activities is a focus on being present and aware. Approaching mindful activities for adults with a child-like curiosity will help facilitate that sense of awareness.
Hopefully, by practising these simple activities, you can begin to be more mindful in everyday life.
