Different ways to be mindful
You can be mindful almost anywhere and while you are doing anything!
Mindfulness is about paying attention in a purposeful way. For example, this could mean paying attention:
- to your breathing
- to sounds you hear around you
- to sensations such as your feet on the ground
- while doing a familiar activity like brushing your teeth
