Are you aware you ‘should’ practice mindfulness but have been unsuccessful at making it a habit? Does it seem like one more thing to add to an already overwhelming to-do list? Mindfulness doesn’t need to be complicated and can fit into even the busiest schedules. Research has shown that the best way to incorporate a new habit into your life is to fit it around your existing behaviour.
Through leading-edge science and a bit of humour, Lisa Belanger describes how to practice mindfulness to relieve stress, recharge and refocus in minutes by making simple changes to the way you are doing things every day, such as drinking coffee, taking a shower or driving to work.
When you say the word mindfulness to some people their eyes gloss over. What does mindfulness even mean? Well, simply put, it is a practice that will help you focus your attention and make the most out of the time you have. In fact, these relatively small practices can yield powerful results—just ask the professional athletes, CEOs and academics who use mindfulness to their competitive advantage.
Readers will learn:
· How to incorporate short, daily brain practices to improve focus without having to find more time.
· How to start mindfulness practices immediately and create a daily habit.
· The best research-based strategies when it comes to taking breaks.
· How to pay close attention — even when the task is repetitive or becomes a habit.
· Techniques to help manage stress, improve performance and deepen relationships.
