Mindfulness is all about allowing ourselves to be in the present moment — not worrying about what happened yesterday, or stressing about something that we have to do tomorrow — it’s about being in the right here and now.
The easiest way to practice mindfulness in any situation, is to simply bring your awareness to your breath. Allowing yourself to feel your chest rise on the inhale, and fall on the exhale. Begin to look around you and notice the colors and shapes surrounding you. Remind yourself that everything is OK. You are safe. You are present for yourself.
Practice this simple exercise whenever you feel stress and overwhelm begin to creep in.
