Did you know you can change areas of your brain by practising mindfulness regularly? Studies show that areas of your brain responsible for relaxation, compassion, positive thinking and well being increase in density in those who meditate regularly, while the areas responsible for sadness, anxiety and stress decrease in density. The same applies to practising self hypnosis.
Here are 3 ways to be more mindful without anyone even knowing. Just taking a few moments every so often to bring mindfulness into your everyday life could be so worthwhile.
1 When you receive a phone notification, consciously decide to leave it in your pocket or bag. You are the one in control and you can look at it when you want and pay full attention to the person you are with. It is much kinder and more polite too.
2 When you are waiting, say for a kettle to boil, at the traffic lights or your computer to start, bring yourself fully into the moment, rather than wanting to hurry things along. Just notice what is happening.
3 Make a simple change. If you often have the radio on in your car, drive with a CD or silence instead. If you always watch the news at ten o’clock, change to another time or watch something else instead. Be mindful of habits that fill your life up and make a conscious effort to break some of them.
