Learning to become mindful can reduce stress, boost the immune system, increase empathy and improve memory and attention, among other benefits.
Mindful Meditation While Doing Your chores
If you haven’t been able to find the time to practice mindfulness, use the tasks you already perform as a type of informal meditation. Rather than rushing your chores to get them out of the way, take your time and only concentrate on the task at hand, one at a time.
Chores That Can Help You to Practice Appreciating the Present Moment
You regularly wipe down your kitchen. Set your intention to create a clean, clear space. Bring your attention to the present. Watch the way the light falls across the bench top. See the transformation from a dirty bench top to a clean and clear one. Watch how your stove transforms from dirty to sparkling clean.
Stand back and look at how amazing your kitchen looks and how you feel.
