Mindfulness tip #4 Meditation: Sit in a relaxed, comfortable position. Pick something to focus on, like your breath. When your mind wanders, bring your attention back to your breath (or your other focus).
Mindfulness tip #3 Mindful Meal: Pay attention to the smell, taste and look of your food. No multitasking
Mindfulness tip #2 Belly Breathing: Put one hand on your stomach and one hand on your chest. Slowly breath in from your stomach (expand like a balloon) and slowly breath out (deflate).
Mindfulness tip #1 Muscle relaxation technique: Starting at your toes, pick one muscle and squeeze it tight. Count to five. Release, and notice how your body changes. Repeat exercise moving up your body.
Winter break is coming.
