3 WAYS TO… experience mindfulnes­s



Focus on sensations Use each of your five senses to fully tune in. When you’re brushing your teeth focus on the scent of the paste, the sound of the brush, your muscles as your arm moves… you

get the idea?


Focus on breath Whenever you begin to feel overwhelme­d, place your hands on your belly and take a deep breath in for four seconds as your abdomen expands, then breath out for four seconds, feeling it contract. Repeat 10 times.


Focus on appreciati­on

Write down five things in your day that usually go unapprecia­ted, and feel grateful. It can be as simple as appreciati­ng the electricit­y powering the kettle that lets you make a cup of tea.
