4 ways to practice active mindfulness


We live in a time where most of us are always busy. We are constantly running around getting things done. In all the chaos, we end up neglecting our health.

Being constantly stressed also affects your creativity and productivity at work.

Practicing mindfulness, even for a few weeks, has a lot of physical, psychological and social benefits. Mindfulness is the state of being completely aware of our surroundings, thoughts, feelings and our own body.

Practicing active mindfulness is a great way to deal with all the stress in our busy lives.

Here are 4 things you should do, if you wish to practice active mindfulness

1. Practice yoga and meditation

Meditation is known to be one of the best ways to improve self-awareness and mindfulness. Yoga makes your body more flexible. It is also a great stress buster. Yoga and meditation helps keep the mind and body relaxed.

2. Watch what you eat

To keep your mind and body healthy, it is important that you eat right. In a day and age where most of the food we eat is chemically processed or has a lots of preservatives, it is important to watch what we eat. You should include organically grown fruits and vegetables in your meals as often as possible.

When was the last time you were away from the dust and grime of the city life? Imagine sitting by the pool, soaking in the natural beauty of the mountains, without a care in the world.

It is not only a refreshing experience, but also very healthy for your mind and body. It is also believed that spending time in nature boosts your creativity. Due to all the pollution in the city, we end up inhaling a lot of toxic air. Spending time in nature is also a great way to cleanse the lungs.
