One way to do this is to incorporate mindfulness or meditation into an activity you are already doing. For example, when I exercise, I tend to listen to music or an audiobook. There’s nothing wrong with that! But on days when I feel unfocused or disconnected, I sometimes choose to exercise in silence, running to the sound of my own breathing and footsteps. Or I swim, removing the option of external input and just connecting to my own movements and the water. I feel more grounded and my mind is quieter (the exercise helps too!). And, I don’t have the additional stress that can sometimes creep in when I’m trying to find time for everything I need to do in a day.
Next time you are going to exercise, or commute, or wash the dishes, try to connect to your breath and to the silence your own mind can create with just a little additional effort. You may be surprised to find your day enriched and your mind rested.
