Having some quiet time every day is the most important tip for being mindful. Other tips include

  • Develop and deepen mindfulness through mindful meditation on a daily basis, from as little as a few minutes to as long as you want.

  • Practice at the same time and place every day. This way the mindfulness discipline becomes a routine like brushing your teeth and you don’t have to think about it.

  • Don’t push yourself too much. If ten minutes seems too long, just do whatever you can manage. You can gradually build up the time, if you like.

  • Put reminders on your mirror, refrigerator, computer or phone. When you see the reminder, do a little meditation.
