Practice Mindfulness!

Great advice — and you are thinking, who has the time? Here’s one you can practice on the go to release anxiety and bring your focus back to the present moment.

  • Pause.
  • Choose an object in your surroundings.
  • Focus on its shape and texture. This can be a candle, a flower vase, a rock, your bag, a leaf, anything.
  • Look at the object, eyes open or partially closed. Relax.
  • Notice its every minute detail — patterns, scratches, shape, texture.

This will keep your mind in the present moment and allow your body to unwind from any anxiety/tension you are experiencing.

When you feel calmer — get back to life.

Let go of grudges, be at peace.
