About this deal

When I walk to the washroom, I slow my pace, notice my legs moving me forward and become present with each movement. When we become more aware of the present moment, we begin to experience afresh things that we have been taking for granted. Detach/Disconnect - from the outside world or social media if it makes you compare or become anxious. Also family members who make you feel this way too! su_note note_color=”#f6ff66″ radius=”0″]Today I will become more aware of how I speak to my children.[/su_note]

This isn’t an automatic way of living or being that just HAPPENS. It takes a while, but it can become your default state if you work at it. You’ll find that you’re gentler with yourself and with others. I know this might sound counter-intuitive – to focus on something we are trying to stop, but this is singlehandedly the biggest technique that has helped me squash my worries.Mindfulness promotes the kind of happiness and peace that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you meet the worst that life throws at you with new courage”.

There is one tool we can adopt that will slow down time, freeze the busyness (or the perception of busyness). Becoming more aware of the present moment can help us enjoy the world around us more and understand ourselves better. It's easy to stop noticing the world around us. It's also easy to lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling and to end up living "in our heads" – caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour.

Go for a walk – Taking a brief moment to get some fresh air and get the blood pumping will truly make you feel better. It’s not always the easiest thing to find the motivation for, but it will really help to get into a more mindful headspace Set an alarm on your phone. When this alarm goes off (every couple of hours) it will remind you to breathe. When the alarm beeps, stop what you’re doing (if you can), breathe in deeply for a count of three, and exhale for a count of three. Repeat this seven times. I relax my shoulders and my face and I also pay attention to my breath instead of my thoughts and let all my stress go as I exhale. At the end of the day make a list of things you are grateful for. Remember the moments you enjoyed and think of what you did to bring them about. Always remember that everyone has good days and not so good days. Don’t strive for perfection, but for “good enough”. Your baby will love you for it
