Bringing peace: Using mindfulness in everyday activities helps

Hi, I’m Sudip jana, here discuss about mindfulness activities for helpes to increase your peace. It might seem tough to find time for mindfulness in our busy lives.

Even dedicating only 10 minutes daily can create significant change.   Taking a moment to be mindful can help you stay calm when things get stressful. It can also boost your memory and help you concentrate better. Plus, it’s useful for handling tough situations, like dealing with a pandemic.

There are lots of ways to practice mindfulness, but they all involve focusing on the present moment without judging your thoughts or feelings. This helps you stay alert and relaxed.

Below are three easy activities you can do anytime you need to relax your mind, boost your mood, or take a moment to enjoy the world around you. Dedicate just 10 minutes each day to these exercises and see how they can positively impact your perspective. It’s definitely worth your time.

A simple and quick meditation is a great way to start practicing mindfulness.

  • Sit comfortably on a chair or cross-legged on the floor properly.
  • Focus on your breath—feel the air as you breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, or notice your stomach rising and falling with each breath.
  • Once you’re focused on your breath, broaden your attention. Notice any sounds, feelings, or thoughts without judging them.
  • If your mind starts to wander, gently bring your focus back to your breath, then widen your awareness again.
  • Take as much time as you need—whether it’s one minute, five, or ten. Consistency matters, so aim to include meditation in your daily routine.

Another way to practice mindfulness is through “open awareness.” It’s about being fully present and involved in the moments of life. You can apply open awareness to various tasks or moments, like eating, walking, showering, cooking, or gardening. Here’s how to do it follow these steps.

  • Focus on how your body feels, both physically and emotionally.
  • Inhale deeply through your nose, filling your lungs, and let your stomach expand. Exhale slowly through your mouth.
  • Continue with the activity at hand, moving deliberately and with awareness.
  • Use all your senses—notice what you can see, hear, feel, smell, and taste.
  • Practice doing one thing at a time, giving it your full attention.
  • Let any thoughts or feelings that arise come and go, like clouds passing by.
  • If your mind drifts from what you’re doing, gently bring it back to the present moment.

Another method for practicing mindfulness involves directing your attention towards various thoughts, objects, and sensations. Sit calmly with your eyes shut, and focus your awareness on each of these:

  • Sensations: Notice any subtle feelings like an itch or tingling without judging them, and let them fade away. Be mindful of every part of your body, starting from your head down to your toes.       
  • Sights and sounds: Observe sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touches. Label them as “sight,” “sound,” “smell,” “taste,” or “touch” without making judgments, and then let them pass.
  • Emotions: Allow emotions to be there without judging them. Practice calmly naming emotions like “joy,” “anger,” or “frustration.”
  • Urges: When you feel a strong urge or desire (such as overeating or doing something you don’t want to), acknowledge it and remember it will fade away. Notice how your body feels as the urge arises. Instead of wishing the urge away, remind yourself that it will lessen over time.”
