5 Ways To Make Mindfulness Easier

Mindfulness isn't always as straightforward or easy as people make it out to be. Here are five ways to make mindfulness easier!

Hi, friends! I’m trying something new today and sharing this content with you in…video form! I’ve been wanting to make videos for years, but I’ve always talked myself out of it. I decided to push my fear aside and just record this short video about how to make mindfulness easier!

It’s by no means a cinematic masterpiece, but I hope you’ll get something out of it anyway. If you want me to make more videos like this, please subscribe on youtube and I’ll keep ‘em coming!

Struggling with mindfulness yourself? Here are five tips to make mindfulness easier so you can to integrate it into your daily life!

1. Create obvious reminders

Make mindfulness easier by reminding yourself often. This could be through reminders on your phone telling you to be mindful or post-it notes left in places you’ll look frequently. You could even use something like a physical object to remind you to be mindful. For example, if there’s a candle you like, you can tell yourself to be present in the moment whenever you light it.

2. Make it a practice

Another way to make mindfulness easier is through a regular practice. Whether it’s yoga, meditation, or another form of mindfulness, getting into a routine will make mindfulness a whole lot easier. I find that using an app for meditation also makes this less daunting.

3. Reduce the noise

In order to get more mindful, it’s important to remove the constant noise that distracts you from the present moment. I’m talking about all of the social media accounts you follow that don’t add any value to your life. Go on an unfollowing spree and give your brain a break from anything that causes you to compare yourself to others, doubt your self-worth, or grinds your gears. You can also unsubscribe from all of the newsletters you *magically* got subscribed to using unroll.me.

4. Get on-board with gratitude

Taking some time each day to write what you’re grateful for is a great way to add more mindfulness into your routine. Try writing down three things you’re grateful for before you go to bed and when you wake up in the morning. Not only does this help shift a negative mindset, it also means you’re taking time to be more mindful about what’s good in your life.

5. Intentionally plan your day

Combine productivity and mindfulness by intentionally planning out your day.  One way to do this is to choose the top three things that must get done today. These are the things that are going to add the most value and purpose to your day. By doing this, you are being more mindful about your priorities, and you’re less likely to get distracted because you know exactly what you need to do.
