Mindfulness Monday

Happy Monday, everyone! I’d like to get everyone’s work (any otherwise) week started off the right way with some awesome tips on being mindful this and every week.

Although this is very difficult, try to do one thing at a time. Completing one task at a time allows us to really be present in the moment with whatever it is that we’re trying to accomplish.

Along with being present in the moment, try not to think too much about the past or the future. Being with this moment allows us to cherish the now and avoid anxiety about what’s been or what’s to come.

Don’t dwell on the past or mistakes that have been made. Spending too much time with these things only allows them to limit and hurt you. Recognize these feelings, be with them, and then move on from them.

Realize what you can and cannot control, practice acceptance of these facts, and practice keeping a positive outlook on things. You cannot change the past but you can change how you deal with things and how you act going forward.

Be kind to yourself, you deserve it! You are doing your best and your best is really great. Listen to your (and others) feelings without passing judgement. Over time you’ll find that this will give you some new insights into your feelings as well as the feelings of the people around you. You can use these insights to better communicate your feelings and with other people.

At the end of your day, list 10 things that you are grateful for. What are things in your life that you love the most dearly? We spend much of our day focused on tasks and concerns, when we could be thinking of all of the really great things that we all have to be thankful for. The things that I am especially thankful today and each day are my loved ones, my educations and my ability to use it to help other people, my good health, and that warm weather is finally coming (YAY!).

I hope that everyone is having a great Monday. Let’s all start this week mindfully and try to keep that momentum going throughout the rest of the week. I hope you’re able to learn something new and practice at least one of these mindfulness activities today and each day this week!

Take care!!

Xoxo,

Katie

  1. I’m honestly super grateful for my site. And the friendships I’ve made along the way. I love art. Man, I really art. On Monday I always want to take time out to reflect how much it matters to me. Bc sometimes Bc I do it as a job it’s easy to forget.
    Awesome post. I enjoy spending mindful Monday with you. I look forward to it. 🖤
