One of the best-kept secrets is that we are actually breathing all of the time. Of course, we know this, but we are rarely aware of this incredibly precious and very personal activity. Each breath is a breath that gives you life. Each day this week, we invite you to simply be aware of your breath as much as possible. Let your breath be natural and let it be your anchor to the present moment.
We are grateful to the Mindful Life Community for allowing us to share this mindfulness activity with you.
We need to talk about loneliness.

Throughout the day, pause and see if you can notice something blue, red, green, yellow, and white. Try to do this a few times in sequence as much as possible throughout the day. Simply take a moment to mentally note what you see. This exercise helps you become mindful of your environment and be present in the moment.
Once again we thank the Mindful Life Community for allowing us to share this exercise with you.
At least three times during the day, pause and try to become aware of something you have not noticed before. So much of our surroundings go unnoticed, even in the places we spend most of our time. This practice helps you become more aware of your environment and to bring your attention back into the present moment.

Weekly Mindfulness Exercise
This week we invite you to practice labeling worry. In this exercise when you notice yourself worrying, note it with the label, “worrying” and let it go. Once you label it, try to bring your awareness to your breath for a moment or two and then bring your attention to other thoughts. If you catch yourself worrying again, simply label it again and let go. It does not matter if you do it again and again. This is a very productive practice and one that, over time, allows you to let go of needless worry. In this practice, we don’t use the label “stop worrying” or try to fight it. We just notice worry, label it “worrying” and let go if possible.
*Remember there is a difference between worrying and constructive problem-solving. Worrying involves repetitive thoughts that can cause anxiety with no tangible impact on the outcome of the object one is worrying about.

This week we invite you to practice mindful walking as much as possible. You can do this literally whenever you are walking, whether just down the hall, to the car, around work, or on a stroll.
Walk with awareness, one step at a time.
Be aware of each step, arrive in the present moment with each step.
Pay attention to the sensations on the soles of your feet as each part of the foot touches the ground.
Try to be aware of the sensations of lifting, moving, and placing your foot.
Notice how the body moves as you walk.
Expand your awareness to your surroundings and maintain awareness of each step.
Let your breath be natural and enjoy the walk.

Weekly Mindfulness Exercise
This week we invite you to participate in a three-minute mindfulness practice. This is another great practice to help you stay mindful and present in the moment. Try to do this at least 3 times during the day.
Sit or stand up straight and relax your body.
The first minute – Focus all of your attention on your breath. Let the breath be natural and just focus your attention on the sensations of the breath.
The second minute – Focus your attention on the physical sensations of your body.
The third minute – Expand your attention by becoming aware of your surroundings. Just observe without engaging. What do you see and hear?

Weekly Mindfulness Exercise
This week we invite you to engage in the mindfulness practice of noticing three things with three senses. Three times today, pause for a moment and:
Look around and notice three things you can see.
Listen carefully and notice three things you can hear.
Notice three things you can feel in contact with your body (e.g. your watch against your wrist, your clothing against your body, the air upon your face, your feet upon the floor, your back against the chair, etc.).
The point of this practice is to help you re-engage in the present moment.
We thank the Mindful Life community for allowing us to share this with you.
Throughout this week, we invite you to pause to take a breath and smile as often as you can each day. While joy can bring a smile naturally, a wonderful practice is to offer a smile to yourself or others at any time, particularly when it is not the natural result of joy. Remember that smiling, whether just to ourselves or shared with another, can be of benefit to not just the recipient, but also to many others, including yourself.
