Mindful Methods for Life: 12 Tips for Tapping Into Mindfulness Amid the Chaos

We’re always looking for fast and easy ways to make our lives better. I recently told a friend that I never imagined needing to use my mindful methods 10 times a day or more, but that is where I find myself. And the silver lining of this extreme testing is that it works! If you need a quick reference to remind you which mindful methods are available to you any time, any day, let this be it. Here are 12 mindful methods for staying calm amidst chaos:

  • Practice meditating.  Download the Insight Timer app and pick a meditation to do every day. Pick one that fits into your schedule.
  • Practice mindfulness while brushing your teeth.
  • Practice letting music help you be in the moment. Make a playlist of songs that move you.
  • Practice calling yourself “sweetheart”or another term of endearment.
  • Begin a gratitude practice by either writing down a few things you are grateful for each day, or writing down what you enjoyed each day, or writing a gratitude letter to someone each day. Let the feeling of gratitude fill you up.

Pick a favorite mindfulness meditation technique and do it. Even if you only learn two – the Loving Kindness Meditation and the Sending-Receiving Meditation – those alone can change your life.
