Take one mindful minute...
As part of your 7 Days, 7 Ways journey, you can also learn more about mindfulness and the benefits it may have in your daily life. Visit Mental Health Foundation’s bemindful.co.uk for more information.
Day 3: Make it a habit and be patient.
Persevere with the breathing techniques we’ve discussed, and make time for yourself whenever you can. It can just take a minute a day to be mindful, but it can be easy to lose the motivation if you’re not in the habit of it. Set a time in your diary to walk away from your desk or into another space.
As with most things, start simple and slowly build momentum. It can take time for a new habit to become part of your automatic routine. Slowly increase the time spent on mindfulness at your own pace. There’s no rush!
